122: Finding God in the Difficult Times: An Interview with Jess Ronne

Subscribe to RTC:

Have you ever gone through life wondering, “where is God in all of this mess, and is he still good?” We know we have, and our guest on today’s show definitely has as well!
Today, we are excited to share an interview with Jess Ronne. In this interview, we talk about how she lost her husband and the grief that came as a result, how she is raising her special needs son (along with her other 7 children), how she has blended two families to become one, and how she watched God show up and work in the mess of her life.
Jess Ronne is an author, speaker, podcast host, CEO of The Lucas Project, caregiver advocate, and mom of 8. You’ll often find her chatting about faith, grief, food, simplicity, blended families, gardening, special needs, clean living, and everything else in between. Jess has 2 books, “Blended with Grit and Grace” and “ Sunlight Burning at Midnight,” with a third book in the works!
We hope that through this episode, you see the goodness of God, and trust that even if you’re in the middle of the mess, that He will show up and take care of you.
