Keeping Your faith through disappointment
In today’s show, Spencer shares his journey through trusting God in disappointment.
After graduating from high school and only weeks away from reporting for football camp, Spencer was told he’d never play football again due to a severe shoulder injury. He was forced to process that his dream of playing college sports was over.
What should have been a summer filled with friends, fishing and football quickly turned into a long, hard recovery from shoulder surgery. But as tough as it was, Spencer knew that no matter what happened, God had a plan for his life.
He shares how after making a bad decision from a night of “fun,” God used the time to help him mature and put Spencer back on track.
Part of Spencer’s journey included being diagnosed with ADHD.
He talks about what life was like for him before his diagnosis and the two things we found that helped him focus and start living life with purpose and drive. In fact, in the episode, he states that after applying these two things, “I started doing better in every area of my life!”
Spencer spills a secret that he had never told my husband and I. (I needed a moment to process that one!)
Whether you’ve experienced disappointment while going after your dreams, made a choice you now regret, or you know someone with ADHD and focus issues, you’re going to love my conversation with Spencer!
