    An intense season with the loss of dreams and expectations of what ministry would look like became the bedrock of John snd Erin's resiliency.

    Episode 30 - Living the Things of the Spirit with Martha H

    Episode 30 - Living the Things of the Spirit with Martha H

    It would be hard to live as a widow in the "Big Chicken" like Martha did for 18 years and not learn a thing or two about spiritual warfare. Martha shares with us how she learned through personal experience to live the things of the Spirit, not just learn about them. She took biblical truth and made it tangible, visualizing God's protection just how it is described in His Word. Martha took what she learned and used it to train leaders in the underground church movement in her country and she joins Resilience today to share what she has learned with us.

    Episode 29- We Aren't What We Do; A Conversation About Sabbath with John DeKruyter

    John Dekruyter, Executive Director of Alongside Ministry, joins us again to share how he has learned the importance of Sabbath keeping. "There is no end to what needs done and what we can do. Sabbath reminds us that our identity is not in what we do. It is in the one who created us". John shares how Sabbath is not an obligatory effort, but an expectant joy. He reminds us that Sabbath helps us listen to the One who shapes our identity as His beloved not in what we produce or earn.

powerful & practical

this podcast is amazing! I love their honesty about real topics that affect the day to day lives of followers of Jesus. they recognize the reality of how difficult experiences that demand resilience can be, but always offer the hope of Jesus & the fruit that walking in resilience provides. they are grounded in scripture, testimonies, and practical tools for how to not just hear encouraging stories but to use those tools in your life so you can walk in freedom and wholeness. worth the listen!!!

Fantastic resource to field workers!

I am so thankful for this podcast as a resource to field workers! Our family is in our first term in overseas missions, and the topics addressed have rewarded us great as we navigate all the first term stresses and building resiliency. Silas and Scott are so passionate and strategic as they facilitate conversations and topics beneficial to help us succeed in the long-run. This a must-listen to those on the field, and also to those who want to support these individuals.
