We’ve all, at some point in our lives, reached a place of crisis. A place where we felt alone and maybe frightened God wasn’t going to help. These moments can be deeply frightening, but also deepen our faith.

In this episode, Tara Rye and Jodie Bailey discuss some devastating news Tara received regarding her mother in light of Jesus’ encounter with Mary and Martha after their brother’s death.
