The Messy Table with Meryl George [Ep. 41: Finding Purpose in Trials]

There’s just something about honest conversation and real-life stories that gets into our souls, exposes an inner courage, and spurs us on toward hope. And today’s episode with Meryl George is no exception!

Meryl is the wife of Alan George (our favorite Church Online pastor), a biological + adoptive mama of three, an intricate part of of our Operations Team at Life.Church, an avid foodie, and simply a one-of-a-kind woman.

We’re covering a wide range of important topics in this chat, from work/home “balance” (which isn’t a real thing, by the way) to adoption to depression to aging parents to personal health struggles to finding purpose in this beautiful mess called life. We’re so grateful for Meryl’s voice at The Messy Table, and we’d love for you to join us!
