Sonya Isaacs of The Isaacs is one of the sweetest voices in Gospel music, but her soul is even more beautiful than her music. Her story of loss and redemption resonated deeply with me, and my instinct is it will do the same with you. Prepare for a moving episode as Sonya shares her deep pain of losing a child and how God's grace heals everything. - Brad
