How do some Christians manage to find the motivation to keep growing even when they go through tough times? If someone so much as cuts you off in traffic, it can be tough to remember to be like Christ. A lifestyle of discipleship requires one key element to help you keep growing in tough times. It requires a desperation for God. In this episode, David Trementozzi honestly talks about how he and his wife walked through the painful journey of three very difficult pregnancy losses and the desperation for God he learned to cultivate in the middle of those trying times.
