Spina Bifida and Scars: Carrie Holt’s Story

Take Heart’s host, Carrie, shares her personal experience as a mother to a child with Spina Bifida, who has undergone 61 surgeries. She talks about how having a child with a disability can feel like being in a pit and how God sustains and loves us even in the hardest times. She encourages us to let God write our own story, even the painful parts, and to let go of unrealistic expectations and having all the boxes checked. Carrie also shares the reasons why you should write your story down, keep anything that brings you encouragement and allow God to give you what you need each day.

What a few of our amazing listeners are saying… 

“I just wanted to let you know I am enjoying the podcast so incredibly much for so many reasons! I have really enjoyed learning more about special needs families and the struggles and victories in all of your lives. Not being a special needs parent I have found that I still find so much in every episode that I can relate to in the world of mothering, womanhood, and/or as a Christian. I appreciate how raw and honest all 3 of you are.”
- Jordan

“Thank you for all that you do to reach moms of kiddos with special needs.  It’s a journey not everyone can understand.  The fact you use that platform to shine the Light of Christ to others is such an awesome gift!  Growing the Kingdom, that’s what it’s all about!”
- Kelly

“I just finished listening to your most recent podcast, and it was so good. I felt so seen, and I really needed that today. So thank you!”
- Kara
