Lisa Appelo is our guest for the sixth episode of the Finding Joy podcast and I can't wait for you to get to know her because she's amazing! On her blog, Lisa writes "Four years ago, life as I knew it shattered in a thousand irretrievable pieces.  I never asked God why but I sure did ask — what now? Oh, how God has answered. In a thousand ways, God has been True and Faithful." Today, Lisa is a widow and mother to seven children, but that doesn't stop her from writing and proclaiming God's faithfulness. In this episode, Lisa and I talk about the power of prayer and learning to claim scripture; how to bring glory to God in the hurt, in the waiting and in the healing; and finding joy amid loss.

In this episode, Barb and I talk about how she broke free from the chains of body image issues and how she is learning to trust God on an even deeper level after a recent career change.
