As we journey through life, we often encounter moments that shape us and make us who we are. Today's episode introduces us to Donna Cole, a resilient and inspiring woman whose story of emotional pain and self-rejection, and her ultimate journey towards faith and healing, resonates powerfully with all of us who've felt defined by our past. From rejecting her femininity to finding solace in activities that boys traditionally do, Donna's early years were marked by a quest for validation and acceptance which led to a spiral of self-destruction.
Donna's encounter with God became the pivotal point in her life journey, leading her to break free from the chains of her past and the lies that had been deeply ingrained since childhood. A testament to the transformative power of faith in Christ, Donna's story paints a vivid picture of how scripture and the beauty of nature can become powerful aids in healing and restoration. Through her experiences, Donna not only found wholeness in Christ, but she was also called to create her book, Peer Heart, and her ministry, amplifying her impact by offering hope and healing to those around the world.
The episode isn't only about Donna's personal journey, though. We also address the important and timely issue of how cultural influences, especially regarding gender identity and lust, can impact our children, often leading to confusion and brokenness. With Donna's insightful commentary, we explore how these exposures can result in misguided solutions pushed by schools, potentially leading to lifelong consequences for our kids. But it's not all doom and gloom. We also discuss the tools we need to equip our children to navigate these complex issues and the role that healing plays in that journey.
