Mourning and Dancing Week 1

Episode 1 | Released November 18, 2019 with Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams

On this first-ever episode of the She Reads Truth podcast, founders Raechel Myers and Amanda Bible Williams go deep fast on topics of loss, grief, joy, and hope. How do celebration and sorrow coexist in the life of a believer? Does one cancel out the other? What does Scripture have to say about suffering? What does it mean to lament? Amanda reflects on her youngest son’s 11-month hospital stay, and Raechel shares about the role the Bible played in one of the darkest days of her life. The conversation isn’t light, but it’s good, honest, and hopeful.
