My guest for The Happy Hour # 189 is Tova Sido. Tova is a Jesus lover, author, speaker, and mom who lives in Dallas. Tova is passionate about helping others see God's incredible healing power for their lives and encourage them to become the people God created them to be.

When asked what Tova wanted to be when she grew up, she always knew her answer: Mom. On today's show, Tova shares her story of becoming mom to six children – three children who are in heaven, and three children she adopted from Ghana. As you can imagine, Tova's story of becoming a mom did not unfold as she expected.

Tova talks about the births and losses of her three beautiful children and when it seemed the sadness would overwhelm her. Tova speaks honestly about how she felt isolated – she wasn't sure how to interact with the world, and the world didn't know how to interact with her. But, an unexpected job offer at the end of what she thought was simply a counseling session with her pastor, started her on a path to regaining her joy. At the end of our conversation, we hear how a mission trip to Ghana became the starting point for how Tova brought home three of her children.

You guys, listening to Tova's story today was such an encouragement when we feel like we just can't make it through. Tova tells us “If you allow it, the joy will always supersede the pain”, and with the Lord it will truly be a peace and joy that surpasses all understanding.
