Happy 2nd Birthday to the Wednesdays With Watson podcast. We are excited to bring exclusive content to listeners that has never been shared on this podcast! So, if you are new to the podcast, this episode is for you and if you are a faithful listener you will gain more understanding into Amy’s story, her healing, and her passion to provide help for others!
It is difficult to believe it has been two years the first episode, we entitled “Healing That Doesn’t Make Sense”. The catalyst may have been you, but this journey has yielded more healing than I thought was ever possible. The first season covered much of Amy’s story, real and raw on the mic. The second season covered other people’s stories as well as several professionals that provide access to help for those suffering from PTSD or any of its friends. The current season focuses on tools for trauma and highlights trauma in the home, particularly childhood trauma. More experts, more Hope through story!

“I left my house with more survival skills than relationship skills”–Sherrie Pilkington.

How does childhood trauma affect us in adulthood? How do adult survivors of trauma respond to new trauma in adulthood in a healthy way? How do they properly face adult trauma and loss with no context?
This episode with podcast host, Sherrie Pilkington answers some of these questions in a way only a trauma survivor can educate us. As the host of her own podcast, Finding God In Our Pain, here is a reflection of her heart:
“Where is God when evil seems to be winning? Why would a good God allow such pain and suffering? This podcast takes a deep dive into our real life pain and looks for signs of life in the ashes.”
We discuss Adverse Childhood Experiences, abandonment, mental illness in the home and a tragedy that Sherrie experienced a few years ago. Her loss intense, but her desire to go to the mat with God brought peace, and the realization that her pain sits in the palm of the God of the universe.
Sherrie has 2 sons and five grandchildren and is an example of victories that can occur when we desire to break the curse of generational trauma.
