28. Wrestling with love – Gratitude, lament, and hope in our God

Show Notes

Welcome to episode 28 of the Testimony Podcast, this episode is the second part of a conversation I had with Sara Hall.

If you’ve not listened to the first part, which is featured in episode 27, then I suggest you go and listen to that first. Sara is a wife, a mum, a blogger, counselor and author of “Tasting Dirt – When you’re disappointed with God” and in this episode, we talk about gratitude, including Sara’s own twelve thousand reasons for gratitude. We also talk about the helpfulness and honesty of lament, and its importance for healing, and the process of putting all of our faith and hope in the Lord.

I think this episode, together with the previous episode, number 27, contains an essential message for Christians today.


I was greatly blessed by talking to Sara, I hope you are blessed by listening to our conversation.

The gift of desperation with Cat Etherington

My guest for this episode is someone who knows all about shame, addiction, and desperation.  Cat grew up in a stable and loving family in Norfolk, England, but at the age of 16 she started to get into alcohol and drugs, and her life spiraled out of control. What followed was a decade of addiction, pain, and torment which only began to end when, as a person of no faith she wandered into church and met with the infinite compassion of Jesus. Since then, there have still been difficulties and hardships in her life, but even in times of doubt and questioning Cat found herself called by God to a ministry to set others free from the pain she had felt. That calling had led her to the ministry she is involved in today with the Naked Truth Project, a ministry to those struggling with pornography addiction, and their partners. This is her story.     ...
