Grace P. Cho: The Vast Love of God

“I have this picture in mind of myself as a tiny, tiny person in the hands of God, and that his hands are vast and the world is vast, not in an overwhelming way, but in a ‘there’s actually still good in this world’ way.” — Grace P. Cho

Listen in as WAP associate Caroline Triscik interviews writer and editor Grace P. Cho. In this conversation, Grace invites us into her personal journey growing up as the Korean-American daughter of a pastor and missionaries, and on to becoming a writer and mother. Grace shares how the re-examination of her conservative upbringing led her to see God as more vast, wide, and mysterious, which in turn helped her become more gracious and compassionate toward herself and others.

I adored my recent conversation with Grace P. Cho, particularly her candid reflections on her faith journey and identity development as a Korean-American woman. Even though much of our conversation kept circling back to the theme of pain and suffering, we found ourselves laughing quite a bit as well. Grace’s authenticity and humility shine through as she offers thoughts on the daily routines that keep her connected to Christ and her family, as well as ways she is finding hope even in the midst of disorienting days. I hope you’ll enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
