Jamie Logo BlackHappy Hour #32 is with Lindsey Wheeler. Lindsey, her husband Chris, and their daughter Eliana live in Nashville, TN. Lindsey started BOTTLE OF TEARS after she was diagnosed with lyme disease and wanted a way to spread love and hope to others that were suffering.


In this episode we talk about her journey with pain and suffering and how that led her to starting a company to help others. We recapped what happened at the end of the If:Gathering for her and how she's hoping for a miracle for her and her daughter to both have complete healing & restoration. Lindsey's story of how they were matched with their daughter will blow you away. We both have children that have come from hard places, and we want to encourage and equip parents on this path that we are, but how do do that without airing their dirty laundry is hard, and we talk about how to do that well. Lindsey shares about how God led her to her new journey in comforting the broken. I asked Lindsey what were some of the biggest things that encourage her when she feels so lonely, and it encouraged me so much in ways that I can be a better friend to those around you.
