We are thrilled to introduce our guest for this week’s episode, Patrick Schwenk. Patrick has written a book, In a Boat in the Middle of a Lake, which chronicles his family’s journey through his cancer diagnosis. Patrick shares what it was like leading a family while battling cancer, why he and his wife, Ruth, actually value their time in the storm of cancer, and what he’s learned about dealing with emotional pain and vulnerability. Patrick explains how God has shown Himself faithful, how he’s learned to relinquish control, the importance of community, and the role hope plays in walking through storms.
