Hope in Uncertain Days

Everyone has a story, and it’s my job with MARKINC Ministries to research and identify people whose stories offer help and hope to those coming behind them. Sometimes I stumble on stories through a Facebook post, a book recommendation, a television show, or through a conversation with someone who knows someone who knows someone – you get the picture. Once I make contact with the potential interviewee, we often set up a pre-interview so we can get to know each other and feel comfortable during the interview. I love this process because I get to hear profound declarations of God’s faithful love in the middle of very broken places.

Through the generous financial giving of faithful supporters, MARKINC is able to provide these Help and Hope stories to thousands of people longing for someone ahead of them in life’s journey to call back that God is sovereign and He can be trusted, even when the lights in life go out.

Caitlin Jane is one of those sweet people who eagerly shares her story of hope in uncertain days, not only through our Help and Hope audio library, but through her original music as a recording artist.

Caitlin Jane will be sharing her story and music during our annual Spring Benefit on May 18, which I encourage you to register for now

As a young woman, Caitlin Jane was beginning to see her career as a recording artist start to take off when she heard the diagnosis no young person ever expects: “You have an inoperable brain tumor.” During our conversation, Caitlin describes her battle to find a cure and then just when life seemed to be turning around, the news that shook her world once more.

Caitlin Jane’s story is a light in the darkness for all who face uncertain days, but especially young women and young men as they struggle with the challenges of walking by faith when life is turned upside down.

Caitlin’s response to a life-threatening medical diagnosis, disappointments, even to standing against the tide of cultural pressures is a remarkable and a unique journey that will encourage other young people that they have choices in the way they respond not only to typical teenage pressures, but life crises and a culture that challenges their core values.

Caitlin’s story will “raise the bar” for young women who are struggling – in that they will realize they, too, can walk by faith when life seems to be a mess.

I hope many of you will join us on May 18 and hear not only Caitlin’s story but also the profound story of Marie Monville as she shares how one light still shines in the darkest of circumstances. Marie will describe how God walked with her in the aftermath of her husband holding hostage and then killing Amish schoolchildren before taking his own life. How does anyone survive such horror? You will never forget Marie’s description of supernatural forgiveness and profound grace that carries her to this day.

This will be a special evening of music, inspiration, delicious desserts, and fun surprises. Make it a date night or night out with friends. Click here for more information and to make your reservation. See you there!
