Trusting our God who Gives & Takes Away with Tanya Legro - S3 E12

In this episode, Bethany sits down with her girl Tanya Legro. Bethany was 16 when she first met Tanya and credits her for the “matchmaking” of her and her husband Andy. Tanya’s journey has been one of faithfulness through difficult seasons and painful loss. From singleness, adoption, to losing a child, we cover a lot in this conversation. Grab some tissues and a pen to take notes, you will need them both.

To hear more about KK’s beautiful story, you can go back to season one “real talk” episodes when Bethany shares with Jenn about walking those final days with Tanya.
