Hopeful Words on Multiple Sclerosis, Abortion, and More - Tuesday, August 6, 2019

After being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 30, Mark Davis Pickup’s life took a radical turn. Not only did his daily lifestyle have to be reframed, but so did the placement of his identity:

“The whole self-image issue comes up . . . and this isn’t just for people with disabilities, it’s for everybody . . . I had to redefine myself, from being healthy and able bodied, with an upwardly mobile career, to a new human being that was now in a wheelchair. Who is that new human being? I had to redefine ‘Self’.” —Mark Davis Pickup.

This life-readjustment for Mark led to his occupation of advocacy for human life, and placing our identity, our value, and our entirety of hope in Christ alone.

If you are facing a redefining of your “Self”, a situation involving abortion, Multiple Sclerosis, or other trials involving a life-readjustment, we hope that Colleen’s truthful and enlightening conversation with Mark is an encouragement to you today.

Football, Phantoms, Fractures, and Faith - Tuesday, July 2, 2019

In less than one second, Chris Norton’s life was irreversibly altered. Primed to be an All-American football star, Chris suddenly suffered a paralyzing C3-C4 vertebrae fracture and was given a 3% chance of ever moving or feeling anything below his neck. This haunting quadriplegic prediction didn’t slow Chris’s motivation to defy the odds.

“You can choose to listen to ‘You will beat this’ or you can listen to the Dr. Phantoms of the world that say, ‘You’re never going to move anything in your legs ever again.’ What we pay attention to can make all the difference.” – Chris Norton

Listen in as Colleen and Chris discuss physical trials, mental battles, years of therapy, and the origination of the Chris Norton Foundation, which desires “to help people with neuromuscular injuries and disabilities overcome their obstacles, and live better lives.”

Healing Hope after a Diversity of Deaths, Part 2 - Thursday, June 6, 2019

After a lifetime devoting himself to becoming a pediatrician, Stephen “Doc” Hunsley’s occupational dreams died just weeks into his new practice. Years later, after devoting himself to filling the role of a stay-at-home father, Doc’s middle child Mark, who had Dravet syndrome and autism, died at the age of five. These two deaths drastically changed Doc’s life.

How do we move on after enduring horrific, crushing losses? Where is God when our health, our dreams, and our family life continually fracture?

Join us for part one of Colleen’s interview with Doc to hear words of transforming hope and how life’s greatest losses change our perspective and prepare us for future opportunities we could have never imagined.

How a Hollywood Nightmare Turned into a Christ-driven Dream - Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Electrifying concerts, Hollywood fame, drunken luxury, and fading riches were Brad Alden’s MO in life before his carnal-based indulgences were replaced with Christ-based diligence.

Living and Leaving Grace-Filled Legacies - Friday, March 1, 2019

A family conversation with Chuck and Austin

We are wrapping our arms around a subject that has no age limit, no time limit, and no generational limit. In this multigenerational dialogue between three Swindolls, we dissect and discuss the idea of transgenerational grace and its observable impact through time. Whether you’re in your 20s, 50s, or 80s, learning and living grace is always appropriate and always needed.

Link arms with us as we explore the influence of grace in subjects like grace toward siblings with disabilities, gracious parenting, Paul’s transformation into a gracious change-agent, and grace-oriented vs. legalistically-oriented families.

Purchase book.
