Suffering

Gospel Hope When Life Doesn't Make Sense

Sometimes life just hurts. How will you respond when you face these unexpected and unwanted trials? And what will you say to comfort others in their darkest hour of pain?

Through my own recent sickness, I came to realize that suffering is an opportunity for spiritual growth that can define us as Christians. We either fall into traps and complicate our suffering, or we choose instead to seek after the comforts that God has made available. In my new book, Suffering, I share the lessons I learned and the wisdom God revealed to me through His Word. I pray this honest yet hopeful book will help you move forward in trying times!

Hard Times Can Inspire Spiritual Growth

On October 19, 2014, my life changed. I was a few days away from kidney failure and I didn't know it. In the midst of physical, emotional, and spiritual pain, I cried out to God. Why me? Why now? But today I am no longer angry or discouraged with my pain and weakness - and I want to share with you the reasons why in my new book on suffering.

Inside the Book

In these pages, I weave together my personal story of sickness, my years of counseling hurting people, and what the Bible has to say about suffering.
