Suffering is real. But so is hope. Our guests will offer empathy and biblically anchored help for those in pain. They know, because they have been there. If you are hurting, join us to discover how you can find real hope in the midst of darkness.
Most believers will acknowledge that as Christians we are not immune to the evil in the world--and that includes stress and the fear and anxiety we often experience as a result. But it is not God's plan for you to remain in bondage to them! He wants to set you free from everything the enemy brings against you so that you can fulfill His purpose in your life. He has created you for big things! As both a medical doctor and a minister, our guest has the knowledge and experience to help you gain complete liberty from fear and anxiety and realize your full potential. She will help you see that through Jesus, you are an overcomer!
Kristen's desire is to help women love Christ, learn the Bible, and live the gospel. And not only women, but any person who wants to know more about how the gospel applies to every corner of life. Her years of walking through chronic pain and Lyme disease especially inform her writing, as seen in her first book, "Hope When It Hurts: Biblical Reflections to Help You Grasp God's Purpose in Your Suffering" (The Good Book Company, April 2017). Kristen and her husband, Brad, live in Chicagoland and are members at The Orchard Evangelical Free Church. In addition to teaching at her church, Kristen speaks at conferences, including The Gospel Coalition, and regularly writes for The Gospel Coalition, Unlocking the Bible, and For The Church.
