Depth Podcast Episode 83: Special Mom Story — Katy Epling

Listen now:

Have you ever used the words: And Yet?  Maybe you’ve said, “God, things are really hard, And Yet, I feel closer to you than ever before.”

Katy Epling used these words “And Yet” on the podcast this week as she shared her special mom story, and it really touched my heart. I love that Katy honestly shares the ups and downs of parenting a child with special needs. According to Katy, the joys far outweigh the struggles. Also, Katy gives us practical ways we can come alongside and help another family as well as some hurtful words to avoid. You do not want to miss all the wisdom she shares with us!

Lastly, Katy and I met through Hope Writers and her Life on Purpose Summit. She even has a book called *Life on Purpose. She loves to share with others that God created them on purpose for a purpose!”  I cannot wait for you to hear what birthed this truth that God created each one of us exactly as we are.
