Today on the Grove Podcast, Shelley Giglio sits down with a dear friend of the Grove, Katherine Wolf. On April 21, 2008, Katherine suffered a massive brain stem stroke, which could have left her paralyzed or in a vegetative state, but the Lord had different plans for their family. Although she is still severely disabled, and struggles with many harsh side effects of her stroke and the events that followed, she and her husband Jay and their two boys have learned to thrive in their story. Katherine and Jay recently moved their family cross-country from Los Angeles to Atlanta and are a part of the Passion City Church family.
In today’s episode, she shares with Shelley how she has come to love her story, how God has healed her heart and given her the ability to “hope while you cope.” They talk about raising boys, the challenges of watching them grow in their understanding of her disability, and even relate to each other as being daughters of dads living with cancer. It’s an honor to have her share with us today, especially in the wake of the 11th anniversary of the day that would mark her life forever.
