One Voice Makes A Difference with Janet Swanson

  • A story about a small town girl that had no where to turn.  She found strength and hope as God began to show up in small powerful ways 

As you all know, I have been doing everything within my power to bring awareness to Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerated Colitis, Auto-Immune Disorders, Ileostomy, Colostomy,  & Urostomy bags, Colon cancer etc. 

I have been so inspired by all my guest that have been on my podcast.  You are going to be inspired by Brandi also as we bring awareness of  the suffering that some people go through. 

Brandi was diagnosed with UC at the age of 18 in Feb of 2006 as a high school senior. Right when she thought she would get better, things just got worse and darker for her.  Following many surgeries she was also diagnosed with Crohn's as her  body decided to attack the Jpouch.

Brandi has suffered greatly, but God always provided a person that could help direct her right when she needed it.  Throughout Brandi’s sufferings, Philippians 4 has  really ministered to her and has always given her strength. 

 Like verses 4 & 5 says, " Be full of joy always because you belong to the Lord. Again I say, be full of joy!  Let all people see how gentle you are, for the Lord is coming soon”. 

Again…. Verses  6& 7 says, “Do not worry. Learn to pray about everything. Give thanks to God as you ask Him for what you need.  The peace of God is much greater than the human mind can understand. This peace will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.”

Then it goes on to say, “ thing on these things…..good reports! “ 

Brandi’s life verse is that she has learned to be happy with whatever she has.  She strives to be content in need and want.  She has learned the secret of being happy at all times…….Through Jesus Christ!


Philippians 4:13 I can do all things because Christ gives me the strength.
