This week we conclude our Faith and Doubt series with our guest, Stephanie Lobdell. Stephanie is a campus pastor, speaker, writer, and a mama of 2. Her first book, Signs of Life: Resurrecting Hope Out of Ordinary Losses, released on October 1. In Signs of Life, Stephanie leads readers into the grand story of God’s saving action and resurrection power. Punctuated with stories of biblical figures such as Sarah, Naaman, Saul, and Anna—who faced ordinary deaths and also God’s reviving power—Signs of Life claims Jesus’ resurrection matters now. In candid and artful prose, Lobdell shares stories of her own depression, loss of confidence, and disillusionment with the church.
In this episode, we discuss doubt and resurrecting faith after periods of church hurt and mental illness. We are so thankful to Stephanie for opening up and sharing her struggles in such a vulnerable way, and for sharing how God has resurrected new faith and hope in the midst of those struggles.
