Shaken Faith

Video posted May 6, 2014 in News by Dylan Nelson


Laura Berry used to frequently practice her religion. Laura attended church services regularly, was an active member in the church community and volunteered for church related mission trips. She was a devoted Christian who rarely questioned her faith or God. However, everything changed when Laura unexpectedly lost her father.

In the fall of 2013, Laura’s father checked himself into the hospital after some stomach pains. He was expected to come out in a few days, but days turned into weeks and Jack Berry passed away with no warning.

Ever since losing her father Laura has questioned her faith and God. Her faith has been completely shaken and has yet to be restored. Laura turned to many different people and groups to try and find help out of the aftermath of mourning. After months of looking for assistance, she has found some religious advice and counseling through a new group of friends at a church in State College. This new outlet has helped restore some of Laura’s shaken faith and is helping her see the light at the end of the tunnel.
