Jenny Smith - Why Did This Happen to Me?


 So, what do we do when life hands us a tragedy? Usually, we want to know the reason why it happened, but what if instead of looking for a reason, we looked for a purpose. In this episode, we’ll wrestle with the question, “Why did this happen to me?

Jenny grew up in the church and came to faith at an early age. She discovered gymnastics at three, and that became the focus of her life until an accident left her paralyzed from the chest down. I often see Jenny at church—always in her wheelchair and usually with a smile. Her courage and faith inspire me. If your story hasn’t turned out how you had hoped, if your struggles feel overwhelming, and your situation feels hopeless, I hope Jenny’s story will inspire you to be brave, to keep dreaming, to live with the confidence of knowing Jesus can redeem anything.
