For a lot of women, the spotlight of Mother’s Day shines brightly on hurtful places. Pain, that on most days may lie under the surface, feels fresh.

Perhaps your pain is unrelated to motherhood. Maybe it’s a lost job or a troubled child or a sick parent or loneliness. . .whatever it may be, you are grieving and you may wonder if God cares.

If He does care, where is He in the midst of your sadness?

My hope is that today’s podcast guest will give you fresh perspective on what God knows about pain, what breaks His heart and the promises He makes.


I “met” Natasha the moment we started recording the podcast. A mutual friend suggested I interview her and, boy, am I glad I did. Brilliant.

Natasha Metzler shares her story of continued infertility, a season of depression, and what she learned about God from reading the Bible in 28 days.

Natasha is wise, godly woman with a message of hope for anyone experiencing pain. She also gives you words to encourage someone you may know going through a painful situation.

You can find Natasha’s encouragement regularly at and Kindred Grace. She has also written two books (links in the show notes).
