From poverty and hunger to fatherlessness and failure, Edie Wadsworth shares about her first book, a spiritual memoir of her life entitiled, All the Pretty Things--the story of a Southern girl who went through fire to find her way home. In this episode, Edie shares about her childhood in East Tennessee, those people who became lifelines, mentors and stepping stones for her. She unpacks the significance of her journey through medical school, the death of her Father, and the unraveling of her life that followed, including the guilt and shame of her failure--the alcohol, an affair, and a divorce. How therapy and essential oils helped, and ultimately how God meets us in our darkest days and continues to bring His redemption to our most broken places.

There are times in life we are afraid--afraid we will miss God's will--afraid to take the next step, move toward our goal, accomplish that achievement, or believe we can do whatever it is we're dreaming about or believing for. We feel like we are not enough and become paralyzed by our fear. And we are not enough by ourselves, but we are enough because of Christ. And God is with us and He does not want us to be afraid.
