    True, lasting change is hard.  When we are trying to change in our own strength, it can feel impossible. Christopher Cook is a pastor, leadership coach, podcast host, and author who is passionate about transformation.  As a young man, he experienced great adversity that resulted in depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.  For some people, those challenges could have resulted in losing faith in God.  But God used those experiences to teach Christopher about true transformation.  Christopher Cook is the host of the Win Today podcast and author of Healing What You Can’t Erase: Transform Your Mental, Emotional, and Spiritual Health from the Inside Out.

    Page 194: Jenn Pooler: A Life-Changing Accident and Surrendering Control to God 

     
    Jenn Pooler had always tried to play by the rules.  Like many of us, she believed if she did all the right things then God would protect her from bad things.  For Jenn, it was about trying to be in control.  When she was 17, she was in a bus accident that altered her life forever and left her angry. Why would God allow this bad thing to happen? She never imagined God could take something bad and use it to change her life for good.

    Page 193: Abby Mingus: From Addiction & Torment to Freedom & Joy

    Abby Mingus says torment is the best way to describe her mental state during decades of addiction.  For years she was chasing the next high, driven by desperation to keep the feelings of torment at bay. During one of her lowest moments, she jumped off an overpass onto a busy interstate, trying to quiet her demons.  At first, drugs helped her escape from fear, depression and loneliness.  But what started as fun, soon became bondage. It stole years of her life.  Now, Abby Mingus loves to tell her story.  What seemed impossible was made possible.  What was hopeless, became hopeful.  Torment and addiction were changed to freedom and joy.  A word of caution: Abby’s story includes domestic abuse, suicide, and other mature content.

    Page 192: Andrew Ripp: Addiction, Desperation, and the One Who Saves 

     
    After Andrew Ripp’s family broke apart, he moved to California just to get away.  His alcohol addiction eventually led to the destruction of every important relationship in his life.  He had grown up in religion, but never had a relationship with a god who could help.  He was alone and desperate.  But Andrew says even the broken and difficult things in life can be a blessing if they steer you toward the God who loves you.  Today Andrew is a Grammy-nominated songwriter, known for songs like “Jericho,” and “Fill My Cup.”  He spends his days writing and singing about the One who saved him.
