On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, we are talking about walking alongside others in pain and illness. Today’s guest, Gloria Furman, has walked alongside her husband, Dave, who has a nerve disability that affects both of his arms, while mothering their four kids and working cross-culturally, amidst other things. In 2010 Gloria’s family moved to the Middle East to plant Redeemer Church of Dubai where her husband, Dave, serves as the pastor. She is the author of Glimpses of Grace: Treasuring the Gospel in Your Home (Crossway, 2013), Treasuring Christ When Your Hands Are Full: Gospel Meditations for Busy Moms (Crossway, 2014), The Pastor’s Wife: Strengthened by Grace for a Life of Love (Crossway, 2015), and Missional Motherhood: The Everyday Ministry of Motherhood in the Grand Plan of God (Crossway, 2016). You can read her blog at and follow her on Twitter. Whether you’re personally enduring pain or illness or supporting and caring for someone else who is, I know you will leave this conversation feeling refreshed, challenged, and encouraged.
