    Surving the Unthinkable While Keeping Your Faith

    in Culture

    Today we really will chat with Joseph Dubowski, author of Cartwheels in the Rain, Finding Faith in the Wake of the Unthinkable wrote the book no parent wants to write.  On Valentine Day 2008, a lone gunman entered a University of Illinois classroom and killed six students. One of them was Dubowski’s lovely twenty-two-year-old daughter, Gayle, who loved to do Cartwheels in the Rain. His world was shattered; his faith tested to the core. “Day by day I felt deserted by God,” Dubowski says, “All day long I felt like I was walking under a cloud.”


    But despite the horror of that time, he learned to lean on Jesus. On Monday’s show we will view the role of Dubowski’s strong, if sometimes wavering, faith on his journey of shock and pain.

    Stop Child Abuse Now (SCAN) - 1126

    in Self Help

    Tonight's special guest is Penny Booth-Johnson from St Croix Falls, Wisconsin, a survivor and activist who's joining us for the first time. Among other things, she's been involved in "Million March Against Child Abuse," a Nationwide effort to bring voices together in making an impact, being a voice for our children. Penny explains, "My memories go back as far as probably before I was 2, being picked up and thrown into canning jars. I have enough scars on my head and you could draw a road map across country on my scalp." She goes on, "My mother was the abuser. Everyone knew, but no one stood up. Years of her abuse had taken a toll on not only my body but my mind." For a number of years, Penny had been what she calls "a keyboard advocate" sharing very little of herself and hiding behind a computer screen. Recovering from a stroke and news of a brain tumor got her into action. "I knew I had to do something, and determined I was going to become an advocate that was no longer going to hide behind my screen. In September of 2013, I contacted "Million March Against Child Abuse" and became a Lead Coordinator for St. Croix Falls WI, and held my first Walk against Child Abuse April 5th 2014." She concludes, "I'm ready to tell my story. Yesterday I lived in shame of my scars. Today I soar past them to tell other peoples stories, to be a voice. I thank you for this opportunity, and I only pray that when I have the opportunity to tell MY story it will help others come forwards and erase the stigma of shame and we can continue to grow for our future generation."
