    The Fight to Flourish: Interview with Jennie Lusko | Ep. 423

    The Fight to Flourish: Interview with Jennie Lusko | Ep. 423

    In this episode Jennie Lusko joins Dr. Kim to talk about her story of coping with the loss of her daughter and how to walk through tragedy with your marriage still intact. Jennie and her husband, Levi, lead Fresh Life Church in Montana. They have five children: Alivia, Daisy, Clover, Lennox, and Lenya, who is in heaven. 
     
    5 days after Christmas in 2012 their daughter Lenya died of an asthma attack. 
     
    Jennie is bravely sharing her story of loss and struggle with the world in her book that just released The Fight To Flourish. One of the things that we love about this book is that Jennie points out that you don’t have to have it all together for God to work. He just wants you. Grief and struggles are real but the gospel truth is that we can find hope even in the dark and that in the midst of pain, God transforms us. 
     
    Jennie shares some powerful truths about walking through struggles and gives us hope and practical examples of how God uses our pain for his glory and our good. 
     
    We pray this episode is helpful to you and your marriage.

We have to learn new, better ways to communicate in our marriages.

In the waiting...

Team,

Thanks so much for what you do, keep it up!

I have followed your podcast over the last couple of months and it has been a great rock for me during my first two years of marriage, the most difficult season of my life. My wife and I are holding on by a thread and have tried everything in the book as far as counseling, mentoring and devotions. With my past of cheating and pornography early on and her struggles of abandonment and affirmation combined with a mental diagnosis, our situation has been nothing but a roller coaster for the past 3 years since we became engaged. We want nothing more than to have peace, love each other, and act out the purpose that God has called us to.

The podcast has encouraged me, helped me to lean in and has given me something to keep my mind engaged through learning and bettering myself during this season. I would encourage anyone to give it a try. Dr. Kim and Christina share real life experiences that encourage me and I am sure they will speak to you as well. I am trying to figure out this thing called life just like everyone else. I am living proof of my church’s mission; just a real person, with real problems, trying to discover and live out the real love of Jesus.

Best,
E
