Episode 16 - Pami

Joining me today on Heart Lessons is my friend, Pami Clark. She goes to the same church as some of my family in Pennsylvania and reached out to me a few years ago to let me know she was praying for me during my journey with Evie.

Since then I have been blessed with the details of her story and her faith through the difficult road the Lord has her on.

About five years ago, Pami suffered a massive stroke that severely impacted her physical and cognitive abilities. Since then she has had about 12 strokes (maybe more), and doctors predict this will continue for the rest of her life.

But Pami’s testimony remains strong. She has such a tender heart and talks about all the good that has happened as a result of her strokes. She also shares a unique and challenging perspective of what it means to live every day knowing it might be your last.

I’m so grateful Pami was willing to share her heart with me and I know you will be too.

Heart Lesson:

The steadfast love of the Lord never changes.

  • Rachelen Hensler - This episode was encouraging in that Pami seems to have the clarity that I often desire regarding”each of us is dying” and “God has put ministry right in front of me; my responsibility is to act.” Then you Sarah and Pami.ReplyCancel
