EPISODE NOTES

Many parents worry about their child’s health, a specific illness, or simply the “what-if’s” when it comes to parenting. “What if my child turns away from me, what if my child flunks out of school or what if my child gets a terminal illness.” Fear is a regular part of parenting. But parenting out of fear robs parents- and their children- of the joy that they were meant to experience in life.

We can overcome fear and we can get worry under control because the truth is, we have a lot less control over our children’s lives than we think we do. We will hear the extraordinary story of one mother who lived with the pain of her young daughter’s chronic illness. Her daughter lived in and out of hospitals and experienced abdominal pain daily. We will hear how this mother coped with her daughter’s life-threatening illness and then the miraculous event that changed them both. This is the story of Christy Beam. Her story became a popular movie with Jennifer Gardner called Miracles for Heaven.
