Show Notes

What happens when we lose our spouse unexpectedly? Why does it seem that sometimes, when it rains, it pours? How does a person recover when she’s facing trauma after trauma?

Jenny Muscatell dealt with a faith-stretching kind of growth in 2013. In April her mother died. Two months later, her husband died unexpectedly of a heart attack at the age of 38. A few months later, her daughter, who had already had 6 open-heart surgeries, suffered a substantial decline requiring surgery number 7 which unfortunately failed, only to be followed by surgery number 8. 

It rained, and it poured, in the way storms often do. But that was the year Jenny learned to pick up the pieces she didn’t know could even be broken. It was the year she clung to a raw dependence on God. It was the year she found hope in the dark places. 

Jenny is a seasoned social worker, an author, and today she’s going to talk to us about The Legacy Project and how people can use writing to help them deal with life, death, and trauma.
