Episode 24 - A God Outside the Box :: Recovering from a Destructive Marriage : “Joan”

What do you do when marriage isn't forever?  What do you do when staying becomes unsafe?  My friend and guest, "Joan" shares her story about leaving a destructive marriage for her own safety.  She opens up about her experience of God and the body of Christ as she wrestled with how to love God and walk a path she never thought she would be walking.  With vulnerability, compassion, and authenticity, Joan shares her story of a God who revealed Himself to be bigger than the box she thought He fit in.  

Due to the sensitivity of this particular story, Joan is not my guest's real name.  She has requested it to be withheld for safety reasons.  Although her real name will not be published, Joan has compassionately made herself available to connect with if you find yourself resonating with aspects of the journey she walked on.  You may contact me at tearsofgold16@gmail.com and I will facilitate a connection as appropriate.
