Have you ever wondered, what is my place? Where do I fit in the body of Christ?Renee Dollenmayer, a university senior majoring in rehabilitation services, grew up struggling with similar questions about her purpose. Born prematurely with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy as a triplet alongside two typical brothers, Renee wondered if she needed to be healed to be a faithful follower of Jesus.Listen as Renee shares how God revealed beauty and purpose in her disability, and how that journey led Renee to a Joni and Friends internship. She recently interned alongside our host Crystal Keating in the Response Department to help minister to people looking for spiritual and practical encouragement, as well as resources related to living with a disability. Don’t miss hearing Renee’s advice for other Christian students living with a disability, and how her Joni and Friends internship helped affirm her calling to serve people and serve Jesus for his kingdom.Follow Renee on Instagram.Learn about Joni and Friends internships. Questions or comments?
