From Grief to Grace: The Journey from Tragedy to Triumph (full hour)
Description: Grief touches all of our lives, but it does not have to paralyze us with fear or inaction. God allows suffering because He knows how powerful it can be to our spiritual lives and to helping us to fully embrace His love and mercy. Jeannie Ewing is no stranger to suffering. Her family has long struggled with bipolar disorder and depression and her baby daughter was born with a rare genetic disorder that caused her bones to prematurely fuse together. Despite the many layers of sadness, loss, confusion and anger, Jeannie responded to God’s calling and transformed her life into one with profound purpose and joy. She joins us today.
Jeannie Ewing believes the world focuses too much on superficial happiness and then crumbles when sorrow strikes. Because life is about more than what makes us feel fuzzy inside, she writes about the hidden value of suffering and even discovering joy in the midst of grief. Jeannie shares her heart as a mom of two girls with special needs in Navigating Deep Waters: Meditations for Caregivers and is the author of From Grief to Grace: The Journey from Tragedy to Triumph. Jeannie was featured on National Public Radio's Weekend Edition and dozens of other radio shows and podcasts.
