Hope Wins: Don’t Let Disability Steal Your Hope – Leisa Williams Joni and Friends Ministry Podcast

    • Christianity

Leisa Williams is a special needs mother with a passion for the wellbeing of families like hers, who lovingly care for their children with disabilities. When doctors predicted that her son, Justin, diagnosed with autism, would never speak or progress beyond the capacity of a toddler, Leisa and her family were thrown into turmoil. With hopes sidelined, toxic relational patterns forming, and endless unforeseen responsibilities and struggles adding pressure on all sides, Leisa and her family eventually fell to their knees before the Lord.

Leisa joins the podcast to talk about her experience with disability, hard-fought faith, and hope that comes from trusting God and remaining connected to the body of Christ, especially when life gets hard.
