Is mindfulness for you? Listen in and find out.

God’s Presence in Personal Trials

Guests: Michele Cushatt,

Michele Cushatt lives most days in pain following three bouts with cancer that nearly killed her. The throat and tongue cancer claimed her livelihood of speaking to audiences for a season, but with prayer, determination and some major reconstruction of her tongue, she’s back doing what she loves. Michele also weathered a rocky childhood, divorce and other personal struggles. Through it all, God proved both a pursuer and a sustainer. Michele’s story will convince you to put your hope in Christ — no matter what life throws your way.
