TAL 2 : Ganel-Lyn Condie’s Life Shows Us How To Smile Despite Adversity

We would all do well to learn from Ganel-Lyn!

In this episode of The Truly Amazing Life Podcast Ganel-Lyn Condie shares her stories of overcoming an auto-immune disease, multiple rounds of chemo, years of struggling to have kids, and that’s just the beginning.

Here’s a small taste of the amazing outlook you will hear from Ganel-Lyn in this episode:

We made a decision that we knew as a family, we could do hard things with God. And that if we focused everyday on the miracles instead of the struggles, that when we looked back and told the story again in the future to our children and grandchildren, they would hear about that time of our life as a gift.

But let me tell you Aaron……our dog was even killed during that time and I remembered telling people, I think we are a bad country song. Because we’ve lost two jobs, my husband got skin cancer and had his nose almost completely cut off his face, and then our dog was killed.

And in the meantime the real estate market had completely fallen out and we were trying to sell our home for almost a year.

It was a very challenging time.

And we’re just emerging from that. We’re just recovering.

We just have sold everything and we’re literally in the middle of our forties starting over again.

And we’re now living in a tiny little rental house, building a new home, and trying to financially recover. We’ve sold everything we have. Our dining room table I’m working at right now is a little folding table with folding chairs.

And we’re happier than I could ever imagine.

And we walked away from a custom built home and we’re in a tiny little old 70 year old farm house. And people walk into our home and knowing what we’ve had, and they love the feeling here. And I would say, it’s because it’s stuff.

There were lots of times where, to quote you back to you, it was a hard day.

It was a hard hour, or a hard couple of days.  When there’s no jobs out there and you’re not really sure where to go next…

So, when I think about what was the most empowering thing for us during that time, it was to celebrate the miracles we were seeing and trying not to give into the fear…

If you are going through anything hard right now, you need to listen to this conversation.  It will give you a fresh perspective and I believe fill you with hope.

Ganel-Lyn Condie is absolutely an inspiration.  I feel so blessed to have been able to spend some time on the phone with her.

Listen in now, I’m excited for you to get to know Ganel-Lyn!

  1. Great interview! I really appreciated the imagery of each hard day as a gift. We can open it and benefit from it by being grateful and looking for something to learn from it or we can just write it off as a “bad day” and leave the gift unopened.
