Mondays with Diane

You CAN Do the Impossible

Sometimes our life circumstances leave us feeling like progress, let alone victory over our hardships, is impossible. Diane Paddison shares the unique story of Harriet Beecher Stowe, author of the acclaimed novel “Uncle Tom’s Cabin”, but also devoted wife and mother who underwent her share of trials before achieving success. She provides an encouraging example of how God meets us where we are in the midst of suffering, strengthening our faith and opening our hearts to His answer to prayer.
