I am so excited to share this conversation with John Eldredge, who I’ve been a fan of since reading his book, Wild at Heart, so many years ago. John’s wisdom and depth of insight have inspired people all over the world, and his newest book, Resilient: Restoring Your Weary Soul in these Turbulent Times is sure to do the same. In today’s interview, John talks about the importance of recognizing the traumatic nature of the pandemic on all of us, and the need to intentionally heal and move forward with resilience. He talks about the impact of our recent times on our children, and how we might help them move forward as well.
I love John’s honesty as he shares how the pandemic affected him personally, and I appreciate his focus on the difference between worldly resilience and supernatural resilience – how we must choose singlehearted dependence on God in order to move forward in a healthy way. John also shares one of the many beautiful prayers from his book. I so enjoyed getting to know John and I think you will too.
