By Faith Episode #14: Kristen Wetherell on Chronic Lyme Disease and Suffering

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 Kristen Wetherell. Kristen is wife to Brad and mom to a newborn named Joanna. Kristen co-wrote a beautiful book with her friend Sarah Walton called Hope When It Hurts. In the book, they talk about their battle with chronic Lyme disease and the truths specifically from 2 Corinthians 4 and 5 that have anchored them in their suffering.
I wanted to talk to Kristen about her chronic illness, about suffering in general, and how we too can trust the Lord when, as the book of James says, we face trials of various kinds. I know you’ll find her words beneficial, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in.
