    Grace for All Our Family Members

    Grace for All Our Family Members

    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.

    Waking Up to a Life That Is Far from Fair

    Waking Up to a Life That Is Far from Fair

    I was a girl who never thought I had a testimony . . . and I was about to be handed the worst testimony of my life.

    —Blue Lagoon, Jamaica, September, 2001


    Back-to-back tragedies during a vacation in Jamaica created a new path for Tammy to walk—one that required longevity in healing and finding long-term hope in Christ after personal and national disasters.

    “Life will change, life will break, things will happen; it’s not a matter of ‘if’ they will but a matter of ‘when.’ When they happen in our lives, who will be that one that brings us back to life again?”

    Join us as Colleen talks with Tammy about her personal journey, the processes of healing after losing a partner, how to see and embrace God’s long-term plans, and how to “Find support” and “Navigate the next steps” in the Reframing process.
