My daughter was diagnosed with PNES a month ago. She is 14, an over achiever, straight-A student who expects perfection from herself. This year has been a very hard one, she is not reaching the goals she has set for herself. Our community has come together to raise awareness and funds for medical expenses. So many people have reached out to her, to me, and given us hope that, even though this is not curable, it is treatable and life will get better. We have a a great God moment knowing that their are others who suffer like she does and she is not alone. Learning that we are not alone in our journey to find our new “normal” gives us more hope than anyone could imagine.
Today's conversation centers on Monte Gannon, the pastor of Meadows Church in the Omaha Metro. Monte's path to God and, eventually, to Omaha wasn't easy, but he knew coming here was part of the plan for his life.
