How Can I Keep from Singing - Episode #6


No one should ever have to go through a trial alone – God meant for us to be in community. Pat Gohn from the Among Women Podcast graciously agreed to be interviewed and we shared our common story of husbands unemployed and how our families are dealing with it. I found this conversation to be really informative and comforting too – Pat shares a lot of wisdom and I discovered much in the course of our conversation that I had not been aware of before. This interview was informative and healing for me, and I hope it will be for you too.

This week I am airing part one of the interview, and next week I will air the conclusion.
Music: “The Lord Has Come to Save You,” written and performed by Susan Bailey from her Advent/Christmas album, Wait with Me: Advent of the Promised Son, available on CD and iTunes/digital download.
