Encouragement for National Stroke Awareness Month

May is National Stroke Awareness Month, and for the last couple weeks, I’ve been thinking of my good friend Katherine Wolf. As a young mother with a successful modeling career, a stroke wasn’t at all on her horizon. Yet, at the age of 26, a catastrophic brainstem stroke nearly took her life. Many people thought that her best days were behind her, but she’s here to tell you otherwise! Katherine is a powerful encouragement to me and after you watch this video, you’ll see why. Share it with your friends for National Stroke Awareness Month!

Hope Heals

Katherine and Jay were a young couple living the dream in Southern California. But all is nearly lost when Katherine suffers a shocking near-fatal brainstem stroke, as they struggle to find hope in a life that looks nothing like the one they had before. Now, eight years later, Katherine and Jay are stewarding their story of suffering, restoration, and Christ-centered hope in this broken world through their ministry Hope Heals.
