Olivia finds her joy restored thanks to friends like you

God’s Word is full of promises. But one thing He doesn’t guarantee is an easy life. In fact, Jesus makes it plain: “In the world you will have tribulation” (John 16:33).

It’s a reality we all experience – as day in, day out, life is full of struggles. But the glorious truth is that while the Lord doesn’t remove our trials, He walks with us through them.

“Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil,” says the Psalmist, “for you are with me” (Psalm 23:4, emphasis added).

Every hour of every day, you’re proclaiming this wonderful truth to millions of listeners—helping them experience the hope of God’s presence and help.

Olivia is one of them. She begins by sharing about the lonely valley she’s walked through recently.

“Every day for about a year, I would wake up and say, ‘I just can’t wait for today to be over,’” Olivia recalls.

But through your support, God broke into Olivia’s darkness!

“I started to listen to Family Life Radio more and more every day,” continues Olivia.

Gradually, through the truth – filled programs and inspirational music you help broadcast, Olivia found her joy restored.

“Now I wake up and say, ‘Praise God, I’ve lived another day to be the light in the lives of my stepchildren, the light in the life of my husband, and the light in the lives of the children at my workplace. It’s like God is speaking to me directly, and it’s completely changed my life.”

It’s only the generosity of friends like you that makes stories of transformation like this possible. Thank you for your faithful support!
