Does God really work ALL things together for good, like it says in Romans 8? And do “all things” include those mysteriously jagged pieces that don’t make perfect sense?

Y’all, our guest today at The Messy Table is ridiculously FUN and deeply COMPASSIONATE. Heather Brower serves on the Content Development Team at Life.Church, is parenting two awesome teens (alongside her husband, Josh, who’s also on staff at LC), and is leveraging her experience as the mother of a kid with autism—to create and implement strategies that include and accommodate others.

“He’s working—whether or not we feel it or see it or even believe it.”  Heather Brower

Warning: Heather’s passion to SEE others and LOVE the marginalized and INCLUDE the left-out and EMPOWER those around her is highly contagious. Her story just might shift your perspective!
