On-going Season, Unchanging God

This is the story of a family whose life has not been what they expected. In this talk Andrea shares the story of how life changed dramatically in 2004 when her five-month- old twin girls were diagnosed with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex. She describes the initial shock of the diagnosis, the fear, confusion, exhaustion, desperation and the distance she felt from the God she had always felt so close to. Andrea takes the listener on a difficult journey of exploration, of wrestling with her call to ministry and times of questioning God. She questioned God about the significance of the lives of those who seemingly could not ever comprehend the meaning of the gospel due to intellectual disability. Although her story is one with a specific focus, she is able to help listeners apply the truths she learned and is still learning, no matter what their situation is.

Book Andrea

“…your openness to share [your life] with others helps people to open their hearts to people that need extra kindness and understanding. You’ve been given an extraordinary story, and you’ve chosen to be the character in that story that is an overcomer, nurturer, a healer, a teacher and an inspiration.”

Rev. Shelley Good, WOWKids Ministries
