GOD with JOY FOSTER: Founder of TechPixies
What keeps us going through dark times? I’m joined by Joy Foster to discuss her relationship with faith and GOD. We all have faith, whether that’s in GOD, people, ourselves, or something completely different. We explore where this faith comes from and how it can guide us when everything seems hopeless. This is a topic which is surprisingly close to home for me as I had a deeply religious upbringing (and yes I was educated at a convent with nuns in wimples!).
Our conversation heads to some dark places as we discuss Joy’s father’s suicide and history of mental health issues in her family. Joy provides invaluable insight into how to get through profound personal tragedy. Unsurprisingly, this is a highly emotional conversation, so you might want to have tissues close at hand.
