Women's leadership event: 'Be steadfast'NASHVILLE (BP) -- Facing breast cancer and the breakdown of her marriage, Proverbs 31 Ministries founder Lysa TerKeurst stood before 1,800 women Nov. 9 and urged them to remain steadfast in Christ.
There was a collective gasp from the audience at LifeWay's annual Women's Leadership Forum as TerKeurst shared she would undergo a double mastectomy the following day.
TerKeurst's breast cancer diagnosis in October came on the heels of her June announcement that she and her husband of 25 years were separating due to his substance abuse and infidelity. She told the gathered leaders that having a cancer diagnosis and a marriage crisis happen so closely together was difficult, but that the Word of God was anchoring her -- and it could anchor them, too.
