Welcome to Life Not Typical: An Interview with Jennifer Shaw
It was an enviable life.
Jennifer Shaw had strong Christian parents, an excellent education, a loving husband, and two adorable girls.
But it changed almost overnight.
A miscarriage that almost took her life, her beloved father’s diagnosis of a terminal disease, and the birth of her atypical son turned Jennifer’s life into one of suffering, sorrow, and searching. But her story also includes a surprising turn as she discovered God’s faithfulness and goodness through her suffering.
Listen in as we revisit this conversation with Jennifer, who offers a depth of understanding for caregivers and those with disabilities, empathy for those who have lost a loved one, and compassion for all who encounter life-changing circumstances.
