About this Episode

Dr. Marie interviews Kevan Chandler is an avid storyteller, author of We Carry Kevan, TedX Speaker, adventurer, and international traveler. In 2015, Kevan and friends developed a backpack for his friends to carry him around during their travels. Kevan was born with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA), a genetic disease affecting the part of the nervous system controlling voluntary muscle movement. He never took a single step – but his friends carried him through Europe and China on their backs, and it started a worldwide movement, “We Carry Kevan,” gaining momentum by the day.

Remember, there are two kinds of fire in the world: One that burns and consumes and one that burns and empowers. May God's word and God's love burn brightly in you, giving you the strength to face any fire. Until next time, little embers!

Thru the Fire is a production of Family Vision Media, a non-profit ministry committed to helping Christian parents discern the truth in a culture of lies.
