Many spend their lives trying to avoid suffering. In doing so opportunities are missed, challenges are not taken, and sadly, many never truly live. We know that “suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Romans 5: 3-4.

Amidst all the challenges our nation is currently facing, we are excited to hear from these three men who prepare some of our nation’s finest on the topic of resiliency.
