Sky Full of Stars with Meg Apperson
I’m going to be totally transparent here. There have been times I’ve been so overwhelmed with the pain of life that I’ve lifted my face up to my ceiling and whispered, “God, if you love me how could you have allowed this to happen?”
Maybe you can relate. You know God is a loving God, but then you wonder, “How could a loving God allow THIS in my life?” If God truly loved us, wouldn’t He save us from the really hard stuff? The thing is, it’s usually during the really hard, dark moments that we discover God in new ways.
God’s love, promises, and faithfulness shine in hard moments. His faithfulness is like a sky full of stars—stars you can only see when it’s dark.
Meg Apperson knows exactly what it feels to be hopeless in a time of crisis. Her daughter Avery was born a miracle, but with severe birth defects. It was the day of Avery’s birth that Meg began to understand what it truly means to trust Jesus with everything. Meg takes us along her gut-wrenching journey of how she grappled with the weight of feeling like a failure as a parent—all while fighting for her daughter and her family. Her new book shows that even in the darkness, goodness can be found in suffering. Get ready to be inspired by our talk!

About the Book:
Do You Trust God?
Meg Apperson grew up having a relationship with Jesus, and she always trusted God. But it wasn’t until her daughter Avery—a miracle in so many ways—was born with a litany of life-threatening birth defects that she began to fully understand what it means to trust Jesus with everything.
In this heartbreakingly beautiful memoir, you’ll learn how a mother fought for her child, her family, and even herself as she grappled with the weight of failure—of letting down everyone around her and feeling let down by God.
But in the midst of the fight, through heavy grief, she not only discovered her own voice—she discovered that God is both good and faithful.
If you have ever experienced grief, suffering, or pain …
If God has ever asked you to surrender more than you thought possible …
If you’ve ever questioned how God is at work in the darkness …
Sky Full of Stars is for you.
This book will show you that when everything around you is dark, peace can be found in the suffering. You’ll discover new ways to rely on God’s trustworthiness.
Walk It Out Scripture
