“Nothing that we go through is wasted… no pain, no hurt, no sorrow. We can rejoice in our suffering because we know who our God is.”Renee Dollenmayer, a college student living with chronic pain and spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, is returning to the podcast to share about her online outreach to other women who live with physical and spiritual challenges. Born prematurely as a triplet alongside two typical brothers, Renee always wondered if she needed to be healed to be a faithful follower of Jesus. But as she discovered the way Jesus suffered, she realized that she has a place in the body of Christ and a calling to encourage others through their hardships!Do you feel limited by a disability or lack of support?
