The Messy Table with Nicole Knox [Ep. 38: Clinging to Hope in Sickness and in Health]

Anyone else like being in control? I know I do! But what happens when life spirals out of your grasp and you’re left with more questions than answers? What happens when the rubber meets the road—when your faith smashes into your reality? Today, Cindy Beall and I are chatting with our friend, Nicole Knox, who’s weathered many seasons of illness and unknown.

Yet she still clings to hope.

There’s much to learn from this pastor’s wife, mama of five, and joy-filled encourager. So grab your coffee, pull up a chair, and join us at The Messy Table!

This year I have been in a flair with the ulcerated Colitis. It is so humbling and humiliating to not be able to control your body. Thank you so much for sharing your story, Nicole.
