Thursdays with NAMI: A traumatic car accident was part of her faith journey

Thursday, March 23, 7:00pm

Amy Brundle was on track. It was the week before she started seminary, and she was eager to start her master’s program. It seemed as though God was in heaven, and all was right with the world.

Then it happened. As she drove home from her last summer trip before classes, a terrible collision occurred. Another car came out of nowhere and smashed into hers.

She ended up in the hospital with severe injuries and a lot of pain. It took weeks of rehabilitation before she could walk again. When she tried to sleep, her dreams were filled with crashes and terror. She was diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, which required extended therapy. It was years before she could comfortably drive again without flashbacks or fear.

Join us to hear Amy’s story of going back to school while juggling physical recovery, mental health challenges, and misguided suggestions to “pray more.” Amy holds a bachelor’s in business and marketing from Meredith College and a master’s of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. Outside of work, she is an accomplished musician and writer, a church choral director, a Kentucky Wildcats fan, and a sci-fi/fantasy nerd. She lives in Raleigh with her husband and their spoiled cat Brandy. This event is free and open to the public. Find us on Facebook Live or register to participate on Zoom.
