Welcome to episode 039 of Mud Stories!
Mud Stories is a podcast dedicated to bringing you inspiration in your muddiest moments, hope to make it through your mud, and encouragement for you to know, you are not alone.
Today I’m talking with Caryn Christensen, writer, music teacher, and mother to two girls. Caryn describes herself as a God-seeker and grace-dweller, and resides in San Diego with her husband.
Caryn believes in the power of our stories and how sharing them with each other helps us overcome and heal from our muddiest places.
And while she realizes her story is sometimes hard to hear, she believes it is full of miraculous grace and awesome redemption, and is a story only God could have written.
In this episode Caryn shares about:
- Her story of childhood neglect
- The physical, sexual, and emotional abuse she endured
- The instability of the adults in her life
- And her feelings of being not enough and feeling desperately all alone
Caryn and I discuss:
- The wrestling through the question of: Why? when we are thrown into mud
- How we don’t feel like God sees us in our pain
- How we want to just escape from the horrific situations
- And how God really is working behind the scenes of every detail of our lives, even if we can’t see it at all
And after you listen, I’d be SO grateful if you’d take the time to give a rating or review over at iTunes, to help others find this podcast. (follow the instructions below) Enjoy!
And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb
and because of the word of their testimony…
Revelation 12:11 (NASB)
