You Can Live Resiliently

Some days we wake to a world of crystal skies and bright possibilities. And other days it’s to rain pelting our windows and thunder rattling our roofs. How can we stay strong when the storms of life hit—when a spouse leaves, a client sues, unemployment strikes, or our dreams fail to come true? After facing my own fierce storm, I tried an experiment—reading Jesus’ famous speech, the Sermon on the Mount, every day for a month. That experiment continued a second month, then a third, as I discovered an invitation for weak people to become strong, little people to become great, and for us all to find a resilience that lines up with the latest research. Here I share with you what I found.
