What an opportunity to hear the real-life faith story of Dani Strong. I love how Dani shares her story with such enthusiasm: how she grew up knowing about God and then experiencing Him for real as a young woman. And now she is an amazing country music artist who’s just released her first album: Time To Breathe. Her album debuted at the top of the charts when it was released on iTunes! It was great to chat with Dani about her faith and to hear her share one of her awesome songs, unplugged, in my living room. Listen to the end!

This week Rose interviews Toni Nieuwhof who opens up about her personal struggle with depression and marital strain.  Despite seeming to have it all together on the outside, things were falling apart on the inside.  Toni is a successful lawyer (and pharmacist!), and is married to Carey Nieuwhof, the founding and teaching pastor at Connexus Church in Ontario, Canada.     She’s honest and vulnerable and her story is one of deep emotional pain, wondrous trust and tenacious faith.
