Episode 22 & 23: Daniel & Brittany Brooker

When Daniel Brooker married his high school sweetheart, there was no way he could have imagined what was in store for his life. She was diagnosed with cancer at 19, and a few years later she passed away, leaving Daniel a single father two children.

While Daniel was grieving the loss of his wife, a total stranger to him was about to walk into the same season. Brittany's husband and the father of her three kids walked out the door on a day like any other. A few hours later she got a call that he had collapsed at work. By the time she made it to the hospital, he was gone.

Daniel and Brittany found each other in the midst of their pain, and before long their two families became one. They sat down with Davey and Kristi for a conversation on loss, remarriage, blending families, and more.

Matt & Whitney Wheeler

Matt and Whitney Wheeler have a story unlike any other. It started one night when they were both in college. Whitney was away with a group from the school when Matt got a call.

Whitney was dead … in my mind, in my view she was dead … and then when I saw her for the first time and she was alive … I thought about how dead we are in our sins - that joy I felt and that sadness and all those emotions - and how much more God feels when WE repent.

There were two different options … I was either going to become so angry and so bitter and run as far and fast away from God as I possibly could … or I was going to come to the realization that the only option that I really had was to run as fast as I could TO him and have him embrace me and experience his love. That was my only option.
