Depth Podcast Episode 127: Life Can Be Good Again — Lisa Appelo

Listen now:

Have you wondered if life could be good again after walking through grief? After walking through something really hard like a divorce or the loss of a loved one. After infertility or a miscarriage? There are many losses in life and maybe you have asked yourself that question.

I am so excited to have Lisa Appelo back on the podcast. We are talking about her book, *Life Can Be Good Again: Putting Your World Back Together After It All Falls Apart. Lisa is going to vulnerably share with us about the loss of her husband almost ten years ago. And I love that she shares that God took the broken pieces of her life and as she entrusted them to God, He reshaped what was shattered. There is so much hope and encouragement in this episode from Lisa and I cannot wait for you to learn from her.

Also, I am so excited for someone to win a copy of Lisa’s book: *Life Can Be Good Again. All the details of the book giveaway are on my website at or you can click this direct link:

It is fun to have Lisa back on the Podcast! If you missed my first conversation with Lisa about her book, *Countdown to Christmas, please check out Episode 12 on the Depth podcast.  I love what she shares about this advent book as well as what she shares about grief.
