Hope on the Hard Road

I have been a listener of Colleen’s interviews for many years now. Colleen was there for me reaching out through her early video interviews to bring hope, help, and humor into my life during many of my darkest hours when my daughter was young and newly diagnosed. And I am forever grateful! I am so excited to get to watch and listen to this podcast now. Colleen you truly are a blessing to me and to so many of us parents of children, teens, and adults with special needs. Thank you!

I love yoir Dad ,

Your interview with your Dad

Amazing. Truly inspiring. Your Dad is perhaps the most talented expositor and anointed preacher of his and our generation. His honesty and insight have been a blessings to millions. Your interview brought me to tears as I realized your Dad has been my pastor for over 20 years even as an international theology student from Colombia at Bethany in Minneapolis. I will always cherish his guidance and honesty in his own struggles in spite of the pressure by elders and church goers not to show too much weakness. His greatness is in his weakness. I pray for him and for all of us this to be a season of joy even in the midst of this pandemic that has changed so many things yet we know that God is ultimately working out His purpose in us and in our world. I have always felt grace and acceptance from him. He reminds me of Billy Graham. We have a long way to go as we see other issues people struggle with yet we demonized and even as we can have a genetic predisposition for depression others may be predisposed to a certain sexual orientation that like depression is stigmatized instead of offering open arms love and preach Christ and the essentials of our faith. We are still in the 50’s in many issues and is easy to judge unless one close to you or yourself struggles with depression or has a predisposition for a sexual orientation different than ours that like depression is not contagious and yet we treat those different from us as if they are infected with a Virus... Anyway, I love your Dad...

Depression

I know your dad because my parents went to his church in Fullerton for years. I was deeply moved by his story with Cynthia. My husband was diagnosed with depression and now has dementia. I am in that caregiver role. Thank you for understanding.
