Sometimes life can take such dramatic turns. It’s helpful to look back then and see the twisting and turning path you were just on. Julie’s life was on such a path – the tragic circumstance of how she lost her fiancé and then met her husband Marty, and in the process discovering that she was no longer in charge of her life – God was. Marty and Julie’s story will leave you amazed how God can show up at times and in ways we least expect when we search for answers to some of life’s deepest questions.
Sometimes I hear someone’s story and I am astounded how people can possibly come out of those circumstances. Diane went through a period of profound loss and grief, it seems like everything was taken from her. But in the process she rediscovers God – a personal God. And even in that time of terrible loss, she finds the courage to give to others a gift of life. Diane’s story brought tears of sadness and joy at the same time, and I pray it will encourage you to look beyond yourself – just like Diane did.

See how his faith intersects with the real world of business.
