Life is full of ups and downs, but the painful times can sometimes feel unbearable.
Have you ever discovered hope in those painful times? Sometimes difficult situations are the key to unlocking unexpected blessings. Tough circumstances lead us to transformation and the chance to emerge through the pain stronger, wiser, and more resilient.
We recently shared a podcast episode on this very topic. We heard stories of near-fatal accidents, drug overdoses, and even survival of human trafficking experiences. If you haven’t listened to the episode yet, you can here.
We’d love to know what you have learned from a challenge in your own life. To share, simply reply to this email.
We’re so glad you’re here. We’re better together.

P.S. We also wanted to share that we don’t want to bring up this topic lightly or insincerely. All too often, well-meaning friends have told us, “Everything happens for a reason!” during a painful season. The truth is, sometimes there are just really tough things in life. Sometimes it is not possible or necessary when you’re in the midst of suffering or grief to find a blessing or learn a lesson. And that is completely OK, too.
