About This Episode

This episode is a very personal and poignant conversation between Isaac and his friend Christine Vatuone. Christine is the Executive Director of Informed Choices, a pregnancy resource and medical center in Gilroy, California. Recently, Christine has been covered by major media outlets such as NPR, Washington Post, AP, and Vice News, for her role in a Supreme Court Case regarding resource centers like Informed Choices. But in the midst of this very public work, Christine was hit hard with some personal news that would quite literally change her life. In this episode, Isaac chats with Christine about how we can continue faithfully following Jesus with courage and conviction even when life seems overwhelming and death itself seems to be knocking on our door.
