Bringing Her Hope: One story of God’s redemption at a time.
with Jenae Nixon – Bonus Episode
Jenae is a 35 year-old single (widowed, divorced, mother of 2 boys. Andrew who her late husband and she adopted at birth, is 13 years old and he just finished the 7th grade. Joshuah is her miracle baby. Born at 32 weeks via c-section he is now a handsome thriving 100lb 10 year-old. He just finished the 4th grade).
Jenae has a rare connective tissue disorder called Vascular Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. There is a mutation in her collagen leaving the linings of her vessels, organs, and vascular system very thin and weak. At any moment an artery can rupture without cause. Her mother passed at the age of 39 because of this disease. “In the medical world, I am a zebra. Zebras represent rare cases in medicine,” Jenae explains.
She lives most days with chronic pain and fear often sneaks in and can leave her crippled by the what if’s. But, “greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world!” 1 John 4:4
PLEASE NOTE* One week after the recording of this episode, on September 11th, 2019, Jenae went home to be with Jesus. We grieve but are rejoicing that she is with Jesus now and is completely free of pain. The Bringing Her Hope podcast is all about inspiriting women to live out the story that God is calling them to. Friend Jenae did just that. This episode is full of transparency, vulnerability, and wisdom of what it looks like to live a life of purpose; to live a life of legacy.
