Clothe yourself with the new person created according to God’s image in justice and true holiness. - Ephesians 4:24 (CEB)
When our daughter was four years old, we received a chrysalis in a clear jar. I explained to her that it was God’s plan for a caterpillar to change into a beautiful butterfly. We kept a close watch on it because we could already see the wings inside.
Though change may be difficult, God gives me strength to 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.
