    Trailer | Season 6: Episode 12 | Dave & Diane Toycen | A Journey Through Grief

    In spite of the early loss of our daughter's life, somehow God was present there, and it was always amazing to me. Something would come up that would remind me of that and somehow get me over. In the end, death doesn't win. Obviously, it's a statement of faith. There's a lot of scientists that would say they can't prove that, but I think for those of us who have walked this trail of spirituality and having experiences of various kinds, there's good evidence that we're not making it up, that something's really happening that's going to shape our lives and give us the energy and the faith to walk through these hard situations and see the light rather than just the darkness.

Listen to Dave and Diane share their story about how they as parents cope with grief and great loss.

    Dave and Diane Toycen are well-known in many Canadian circles, in part because of where their careers took them. Dave Toycen served with World Vision for 42 years – and was President of World Vision Canada for 19 years, a season which saw World Vision’s dramatic growth in efforts to serve the world’s poor.

    Trailer | Season 6: Episode 11 | Karen Kingsbury | A Best-Selling Author/Filmmaker Shares Her Faith Journey

    I went to a Christian bookstore, and I bought a Bible and an exhaustive Concordance and went back out to my car. And before I could get out of the parking lot, I just sat there before I even turned on the engine and looked up some things that I thought should be there and they weren't there. And I could hear God say, you can fall away with all your man-made beliefs, or you can grab onto me and never let go. And I grabbed on that day. And so to me, do I see God at work in what I write and in the things that my career, the places where I've gone as an author, as a speaker, now as a filmmaker? 100%, it's all Him. I really feel strongly, and I believe I write for Him, through Him, by His power and for His glory. So, I see miracles constantly.
