  • 4. Transforming Pain into Purpose: A Journey to Joy

    29:52
    Welcome to Season 3 of The Joy Prescription Podcast!We're delighted to interview pioneering individuals who are integrating faith into their work in their respective fields of healthcare, coaching, psychology, and ministry.Today's guest, joining us from the United Kingdom, is (Heulwen) Marina Carrier, author and founder of an online ministry serving the brokenhearted and those who know the pain of loss, neglect, and abandonment. Marina herself lived through early childhood trauma as an illegitimate, unwanted child, suffering sexual abuse and neglect, and eventually being left for dead at the age of nine. Despite her horrific suffering, she was given great grace to follow a career in education, including research, where she became the Head of Department of In-Service Education of Teachers. Despite the joys of her career, she was confronted with her own mental exhaustion and emotional baggage that led her to seek God to guide and sustain her through a healing journey of acknowledging and listening to her inner pain. She is the author of a trilogy, He Heals the Brokenhearted, and compassionately serves her online community, helping traumatized individuals face their pain and give their burdens to Christ.During this interview, we explore the topics of healing, forgiveness, resilience and surrender, as Marina illuminates how the Holy Spirit delivered her out of despair into hope and joy again! Marina's story is truly one that resonates with the saying, "God takes our mess and turns it into a message!" Marina's words of wisdom, inspiration and her determination to live in the love of Christ will beckon you to seek to know God more intimately.Connect with Marina:Website (for her blogs, books, free 12-part video series + more):https://www.overcoming.live/Facebook:https://facebook.com/heulwenmarina/YouTube:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UChxk634erDwRy8Aea2fwhdgPoem mentioned in this episode:Hearth, Home and Courage: A Recipe for Health, Wholeness and Eternal Life – OvercomingThe Joy Prescription is here to help you cultivate vibrant health and JOY through intentional living and health stewardship.Connect with us:Subscribe to our free weekly Joy Prescription devotional emailsthejoyprescription.cominstagram.com/drcynthialibertfacebook.com/createyourownjoyprescriptionwww.youtube.com/c/CynthiaLibert
