5867047121_95d8667a68_b



This is the story of your worst fear come true.

This is a conversation about trusting God with our kids, and others we love, this new year.Christie and Lisa-Jo recorded this episode after celebrating one son's eleventh birthday in the Black Barn at Maplehurst. If children make wishes when they blow out birthday candles, the parents who love them make wishes, too. Mostly we want our kids to be safe.

But what if God wants to give them something better, something more, than safety?

Christie tells the story of the terrible mistake that almost cost her young son's life, leading to a conversation filled with hard questions and trustworthy promises. If you worry about what this year might bring to those you love most in the world, this episode is for you.

    Oh my word I’m sitting here crying. Thad, epi pens, frozen yoghurt.

      Ha ha! Thanks so much! I’m afraid it was an Old Navy or Target find years and years ago. Perfect for when I lived in Florida. 🙂

    Loved this episode as I do all of them, but this… I’ve currently been living in fear as I suddenly have a gem of a child wading through the mud of severe depression, and the fear I feel is real. Thank you for reminding me that a loving Father loves him as much, even more than I, and He is in His care as well as mine.

      What a difficult situation. I am so very sorry. May God be near!
