Mental Health and Ministry: It’s Okay When You’re Not Okay

Mental Health and Ministry: It’s Okay When You’re Not Okay

🌟 Hi, friend.

Have you ever worried that a mental health or spiritual struggle disqualified you from ministry? Today, we discuss mental health, ministry, and the spiritual battle—episode six of the podcast.

 ❤️🩹 We look at the biblical character, Mary Magdalene, in Luke 8--who it says had seven demons cast out of her. Yet, she traveled with Jesus and the twelve apostles—proclaiming and bringing the good news of the kingdom of God along with other women who provided for him out of their own means.

❤️ Our special guest, Tracy Arntzen, is an author, inspirational speaker, mental health advocate, and co-founder of Saving Susan Ministry.

🙌 Tracy shares her family's struggle to overcome the stigma of mental illness and the power of God to use their weakness to birth a ministry to orphans called Saving Susan.

Hearing Tracy and her family's journey will inspire and uplift as she shares how they moved from misery and defeat to victorious ministry amidst mental health struggles and the spiritual warfare that surrounds us all.

💫 Please share this powerful episode with a friend or family member who needs encouragement and hope!
