Hi friend! I’m glad you’re here.
Pull up your favorite chair next to mine and let’s share life. The aroma you smell is liquid mercy brewing in the kitchen.
Red Chair Moments is my place of rest, encouragement and hope in a weary world.
I don’t pretend to have all the answers, but God is holding me together. My mission is to encourage others as God encourages me so that “you and I will be mutually encouraged by each other’s faith” (Romans 1:12). ~April
Just in case you’re interested…
I share life with these amazing people.
I‘ve been married for 21 years to a patient man who loves my quirks and all. We have two teens in high school (pray for us) who are active in soccer, softball, and spending our money.
In 2016, I was diagnosed with Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis, a rare neuromuscular disease, characterized by severe muscle weakness and episodic paralysis.
Suddenly, I catapulted into the world of chronic illness.
The Official Bio:
April White is an off-road 4x4 Jeep wife, cheerleader to two teenagers, and pharmacist. Until four years ago, the only thing missing from April’s idyllic life was a white picket fence and deer that didn’t nibble her garden. However, in 2015, a rare illness, Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis, threatened to derail April’s sense of worth, security, and identity.
April retired her personal pharmacist lab coat to the back of the closet and replaced it with a boxer robe, bearing the embroidered word “Overcomer.” Life with a chronic illness is a daily fight, but God grants His strength each day. God is using April’s chronic battle as another avenue to write and speak of God’s chronic presence.
April is the columnist for the “Pressing On” column for the quarterly chronic illness magazine, Broken but Priceless and Inspire a Fire. She also writes for Reach Out Columbia and Focus on the Family’s Clubhouse magazine. Get a spiritual refill at www.RedChairMoments.com.
