Purpose 169: Some Kind of Crazy with Terry Wardle
Some Kind of Crazy is a powerful memoir written by today’s guest, Terry Wardle, and follows his upbringing as the son of an Appalachian coal-mining family. Though sometimes hilarious and affectionate, his family also left him with a legacy of fear and abuse that followed him into adulthood and landed him in a psychiatric hospital before the age of 40.
Accepting Jesus into his heart did not solve all of the un-repaired, emotional ruptures that was present in his life. He found himself on a dual path of wanting to be a follower of Jesus while continuing to limp along with his emotional wounds. It was down in the ditch of his own brokenness that he discovered the incredible work that Jesus can do if we’ll just let Him meet us there.
Terry is going to share his untold personal story with us, and how it’s only by looking back that we can move forward in the healing path.
