How do we respond when we are faced with fierce challenges and life just seems unfair? In this week’s conversation on FrontStage BackStage, host Jason Daye is joined by Dr. Shane Stanford. Shane is the president and CEO of The Moore-West Center for Applied Theology and JourneyWise. JourneyWise is a ministry that seeks to disciple others while promoting good mental health. Shane has served as a church planter and a pastor and has written a number of books, including his latest, titled “JourneyWise.” Together, Shane and Jason look at how we can reconcile our expectations with the realities that we face in life and ministry. Shane also shares his personal story, which you will not want to miss, of how he has experienced the goodness of God emotionally, mentally, spiritually, and physically as he has wrestled with an intense medical diagnosis.
