Ave Explores Series

Healing—of body, mind, and spirit—is the heart of Jesus's teaching. There are a number of accounts in the gospels about encounters Jesus had with people seeking his healing love, including the woman at the well, Bartimaeus the blind man, the woman caught in adultery, and the rich young man.

Jesus also wants each of us to seek his healing grace. What's holding you back from being the person God created you to be? Through Ave Explores: Healing, you will learn what healing is, why you need it, why you resist it, and how a personal encounter with Christ is the true path to healing from shame, guilt, and sin.

Join host Katie Prejean McGrady and special guests—including Bob Schuchts, Sr. Josephine Garrett, CSFN, Leticia Ochoa Adams, and Heather Khym—as they share personal stories of healing and help you understand how the Lord can heal your familial wounds, addictions, grief, and trauma.
