Run Like a Woman

In this episode, we talk about living and dying. Our guest is Mary Hawkes - a pastor, life coach, dedicated volunteer and, right now, her most important job, support person to her husband Nick, who is living with a cancer death sentence.

Show Notes

As a society we are not very good at talking about death and dying. And yet, it is the one certainty we have. We will all die.

In this episode we have a remarkable opportunity to talk with someone who was given advance notice of her husband’s death. What does it mean? Can you plan for death in a different way when you know it is coming soon? Does it change how you relate to each other?

Mary Hawkes humbly shares her insights on caring for her beloved life partner as she watches his health slowly decline due to cancer.

“Hearing raw, honest stories from other Christian women is a truly powerful thing. Even if their experience is different to mine, I have found it relatable and often healing. It resonates with me for a long time afterwards." – a Run Like a Woman listener
