By Faith Episode #11: Jamee Brick on Alcohol Dependence

Each week this season on By Faith I’m talking to someone who is walking forward by faith, many of them through difficult circumstances. We’re asking the question, “How does God meet us in our deepest, darkest pain and how does He turn that pain into beauty?”

Today my guest on the show is Jamee Brick. Jamee is a wife, mom of three, and a teacher of kids with autism. I first got to know Jamee when my family and I still lived in Texas. She and I attended the same church and soon after we moved to Virginia, Jamee told me that she had a problem with alcohol. I had no idea, and there were several reasons for that, which you’ll hear us talk about in our conversation. So not only will you hear about her dependence upon alcohol, and how God has acted in her life since she confessed that problem, but you’ll hear us talk about friendship and what keeps us isolated from one another.

A few notes before listening: 
To close Season 1 of the podcast, I’m going to do an “Ask Me Anything” episode. One of my closest friends is going to join me and we’ll discuss anything you send in. You can submit your question here.

I’m truly enjoying producing this podcast and have big plans for it. Recently I asked one question to pastor’s wives on my author Facebook page and got so many responses that I decided to do a mini season this summer just for pastor’s wives. I’m also already interviewing folks for Season 2. If you’re enjoying these podcasts, would you consider supporting this work? You can find out more about what that might look like here.
