Resting in God’s Arms Amidst of Loss and Anxiety with Christie Thomas {Podcast 409}

Do you struggle to find comfort in God’s arms in the middle of trials and challenges, losses and disappointments?

You’re not alone. Suffering is real, and anxiety is often a companion.

In this episode of the More to Be Podcast, I’m joined by Christie Thomas for a quiet and thoughtful conversation about what it means to navigate loss and anxiety as an adult and also with young children.

Christie is the mom of three boys who love stories and wife of an educator, and she is passionate about helping parents cultivate a vibrant faith life so that they can live the abundant life AND so that they can model and share this life with their kids. She is the author of Quinn’s Promise Rock: No Matter Where, God Is Always There, Quinn Says Goodbye: Friends May Go Away, but God Is Here to Stay, and Wise for Salvation: Meaningful Devotions for Families with Little Ones. You can learn more about Christie and glean her wisdom at
