A new Bible study from Dr. Juli Slattery and Linda Dillow!
Women Who Are Caregivers
Air Date July 21, 2014
Although our guests aren’t biological sisters (they sure could be!), they do share one very monumental life circumstance…both of their husbands have a brain injury. When you trust in God through the challenges in life, but the healing still doesn’t come, where do you go from there? These brave women share their faith, hopes, struggles and joys of being the caregiver for their disabled husbands.
Laura wrote the No. 1 worship hit “Indescribable” recorded by Chris Tomlin, and works in women’s ministry at the 4,000-member Perimeter Church in Atlanta. She’s a Dove Award winner for Inspirational Album and has earned two consecutive nominations for Female Vocalist of the Year. But amidst that success her husband, Martin, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2006.
"Take one day, (sometimes one hour) at a time, cling to God’s promises and cherish the moments when I see glimpses of the sweet man I married." This is Janna’s motto for life as she learns to cope with the impacts of her husband’s brain injury and the faith-walk she is on to fall in love again with the new person he is post injury. 6 years into their marriage Janna's husband was injured in an accident which completely changed his personality, erased his short term memory, and resulted in cognitive and motor-functioning limitations.
