"The doctors came in and said “He’s sicker today than he was yesterday. At some point today we need to turn off life support." I needed to call my friends and family and let them know that this was the last day he would live."
Throughout 394 days of hospitalization, fighting impossible odds and spending many days at death's door, Beth Armstrong tells the story of how her faith and trust in God grew through the storm of her husband's health tragedy turned testimony. In today's chat, we talk about Beth's journey, trusting God through the unknown, the little things, what to do if you need a miracle and not just walking through a storm but bearing fruit from it.
