This week’s Shaping Families radio program features Amber Joplin, whose husband was diagnosed with a severe mental illness soon after their marriage.  Amber spent ten years caring for her husband and living with the effects of his illness, and talks about how churches helped her after his death.

Shaping Families is on nine stations and is produced by Third Way Media, a division of Mennonite Mission Network, on behalf of the Mennonite churches. www.ShapingFamlies.com
