People of faith telling the stories that matter from their lives
6. The child I loved, with Ana Nolan
In 1980 Ana Nolan and her husband celebrated the arrival of their first child, a baby girl who they christened Lisa. But even from the beginning, Ana sensed that there was something not right, that Lisa wasn’t quite as she should be. And so began a fifteen year battle as Ana fought to get the best for her child. Life has not been easy for Ana, but she has felt God’s comforting presence with her through all of the years of heartache and loneliness. How has she coped? And what are the lessons she has learnt that we can share in with her?
5.From Darkness to Light, Fiona Lynch
My guest for this episode is someone who has had to face all kinds of challenges in her life including domestic abuse, isolation, and racism. As a single parent she brought up six children, and she spent many years establishing and then living out her identity and self-respect. Now, she has many identities. She is a church leader, an author, a businesswoman, a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother; all roles that she embraces as she serves the people around her.
As with all of my guests, her journey has not always been easy, but in our conversation she gives testimony to how Jesus has been her companion through the storms of life. In this episode you’ll be hearing the stories that matter from the life of Fiona Lynch, a true example of someone who has overcome many obstacles to work out her destiny in God.
