Suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us. - Romans 5:3-5 (NRSV)
It started with a twinge of pain in my leg, but the little twinges soon became greater and steadily intensified. Two years later, while I was sitting in my seventh-grade math class, I was told to go to the front office. I could feel my heart pounding as I walked...
God fills me with hope and helps me endure.

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.
