Katherine shares the story of her being diagnosed as a quadriplegic and miraculously recovering much of her mobility.
Katherine Elizabeth Clark is wife to a gifted theologian and a mom to two bright kids, all of whom bring merriment and humor to her days. A native of Detroit, Kate has had the privilege of living in several great cities, including Dallas, Toronto, Grand Rapids, and Chicago. Kate studied at the University of Michigan, Wayne State University, and Dallas Theological Seminary. With a background in psychology, she spent much of her last twenty years working and writing for a nationwide Christian radio and counseling ministry. When she’s not writing, Kate enjoys spending time outdoors, cooking new recipes with her kids, and immersing herself in books. The Clarks live in Wheaton, IL.
I remember thinking, “Lord, please let this cup pass from me. I really want to be present with my family.”
It truly was this incredible kindness of the Lord to a very fragile, broken woman.
I live right in the middle of gratitude and grief, but not a grief that is without hope.
The problem with the “why” question is that it turns your gaze inward.
The Lord is so good to enter in the suffering and pain with us.
I am deeply moved by Christ’s becoming small and vulnerable for us.
Cry your tears, but then pick up your mat and rise, leaning into the calling that the Lord has.
Beneath the sorrow and the pain there is joy.
If Jesus had chosen dignity over brokenness, we would all be in a very lost place.
