About This Podcast

Podcast Description

Welcome to Hope When Life Hurts, a special 5-episode podcast series designed to shine a light on what God is doing during the darkest moments of our lives. God wants to meet you in the middle of your mess. There is Hope for when you lose a loved one and your heart splits in two. Hope for when a transition in life leaves you feeling empty. Hope for when the life you expected to live…simply unravels. The struggle is real, but so is the hope!

“You, LORD, keep my lamp burning,” David wrote in the psalms. “My God turns my darkness into light.”
(Psalm 18:28)

About Erica Parkerson

Erica’s motto in life is “You are Loved!” She’s married to Will, a redhead who has always believed in her, and together they have two wonderful kids who are old enough to vote.

Erica is always looking for the positive spin on things, whales in the Sound, and a good scone. Erica grew up in New York, raised by a loving Italian family on meatballs and macaroni and good stories. She’s since lived in the Carolinas and Virginia, but the Pacific Northwest has truly become her home. It’s the most beautiful place she’s ever seen!

Erica first became aware of God when she was a child at St. Patrick’s, a little, white church with the most beautiful stained-glass windows. At the age of 16 Erica suddenly understood that God was more than a statue… He was real and it changed everything. Jesus is the best friend she’s ever had and every day she loves Him a little bit more.
