I’ve been thinking on this topic for awhile now, especially since researching it for my Q Talk last fall.

Where Is God When Life Is Hard?


Sometimes life can seem so heavy. The burdens we carry seem so big. Whether it’s small things that add up, or big issues that weigh us down. In the mundane, or the unordinary. I vividly remember spring of 2011 – I was healing from a difficult break up, while at the same time starting to […]
