All your life you dream of meeting someone with whom you want to start a family. Meet Navin and Christy,a wonderful Christian couple, who wanted to have children but couldn't. So when they finally decided to adopt a child - it should have all worked out. Right? Not quite. In this episode of Intersection you'll hear about their incredible joy followed by heart-wrenching loss. Navin and Christy share openly and honestly about some hard questions they asked themselves and God. And you'll be encouraged by how they came through this dramatic chapter in their lives.

How do you respond to indescribable loss? Or cope, when you feel like God has taken one of your most prized possessions from you. In this episode I interview Sharon Kelsall. Sharon talks about how her and her family's life turned upside down one December night when she received that phone call which every parent dreads. Anger, rejection, isolation would all have been understandable reactions. Instead she describes something completely different and comes to embrace that peace that "passes all understanding".

Welcome to episode 12 of Intersection! Today I sit down with Canadian Olympic marathon runner Krista Duchene. She returned a few months ago from the Rio games where she ran an incredible marathon in the searing heat. But Krista is not just a runner, she's a mom and wife, and she's a Christian. In this episode Krista describes her journey to the Olympics and all the training and discipline that requires, and the absolute joy and accomplishment of crossing the finish line in Rio and how, in the end, nothing compares to the life she has found in Christ. What a perspective. I'm certain you will love this episode whether you are a runner or just appreciate the Olympic athletes as a spectator.

This episode of Intersection is a little different. Normally we can relate to the people I interview since they are usually from Canada and often live lives similar to ours. But today I interview Josephine a young woman from Uganda who has been through hardship that some of us can't even imagine - living in the face of fear day in and day out. Yet she leans heavily on God, whom she credits for her perseverance and for bringing her to her current place in life where she assists International Justice Mission ( in bringing justice to some of the darkest places in the world. I also speak with IJM's Mark Wollenberg about this incredible organization.

This episode is a bonus podcast episode with country music star Dani Strong. In episode 10 I talked to Dani about her personal journey of faith - how she came to be a Christian. Dani just released her first album two weeks ago, debuting at #1 on iTunes. In this episode I talk with her about what it has been like being a Christian in the music industry. How does a career in music and entertainment intersect with faith? I wanted to know! Listen in on another exciting conversation with Dani Strong.

What an opportunity to hear the real-life faith story of Dani Strong. I love how Dani shares her story with such enthusiasm: how she grew up knowing about God and then experiencing Him for real as a young woman. And now she is an amazing country music artist who's just released her first album: Time To Breathe. It was great to chat with Dani about her faith and to hear her share one of her awesome songs, unplugged, in my living room. Listen to the end!

Episode 9 of Intersection with Rose Zacharias Meeder introduces Toni Nieuwhof who describes coming to faith and a personal struggle with depression, anxiety, insomnia and marital struggle. She describes being angry at God and then reclaiming His love for her. This episode should provide hope and encouragement for anyone who finds that in the busyness of life, depression can quickly gain a foothold, and relationships can fall apart. It's in times like these that we need to rely on all of our resources - friends, friendship, counselling, medication, and of course God and his redemptive power - to help see us through to the other side.
