Martha Knobel Maxham (Maryland, USA)
The Lord is my light and my salvation — whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life — of whom shall I be afraid? - Psalm 27:1 (NIV)
Our church decided to embark on a new ministry program teaching English as a second language. My job was to interview prospective students. After asking them where they had come from, I asked what they missed about their home country. I’ll never forget speaking with one young woman from Bolivia....
I will let God be my guide, this day and every day.

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.
