I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name. - Revelation 3:8 (NIV)
I remember the sound of the gravel under my tires as I drove up the lane to visit my friend Willy. I can still see him waving from his porch — one arm extended and the other leaning on his cane. “What took you so long?” he’d ask.
My small actions canmake a huge difference in someone’s life of faith.

The RESILIENCE conference in 2021 was so uplifting and nourishing. It was wonderful to be with other Christians around the world at this retreat, who truly care about responding to trauma in a compassionate way by teaching spiritual practices to help with grounding and healing.”
Join us for the next RESILIENCE conference on September 29-30, 2023. Learn more at UpperRoom.org/resilience.
