Pictured is Kay Warren and Donna Hoefs at the 夜の願い, April 2016

In this special edition of 新鮮ない精神的健康, Pastor Brad interviews Kay Warren from Saddleback Church. Kay and her husband, Pastor Rick Warren, cofounded Saddleback church. Rick is the author of New York bestseller, Purpose Driven Life.

Four years ago the Warrens youngest son, Matthew, lost his battle with a mental illness. And in the three years that have followed the Warrens have become advocates for hope for mental health.  I had the privilege of being on a panel for their first Gathering on Mental Health and the Church.  At Fresh Hope we are thankful for the encouragement of the Warrens regarding our ministry. The Warrens are the real deal.  They have had pain and have suffered deep pain.
