Finding Hope and Healing with Maria Dunlap

In this week’s episode, I share my recent conversation with the awesome Maria Dunlap, founder and executive director of Vivian’s Victory, a nonprofit that supports families and children during long hospital stays. In our conversation, Maria shares about the experience of losing her first daughter, Vivian, and how hope, healing, and grace came by serving other families who were in similar situations.

I share an email I received from Jenny, who is discerning whether or not to begin dating again after a bad experience. I share a little about trusting in God’s plan and how hard that can be sometimes, and I suggest we pray as a community for Jenny this week. If you have thoughts to share on this topic, send me your feedback!
