In the day of my trouble I call on you, for you will answer me. - Psalm 86:7 (NRSV)
After a difficult shoulder surgery, I was severely limited in my daily activities and spent many of my days alone. I developed anxiety and, according to my counselor, a form of PTSD. I was depressed, lost weight, and couldn’t sleep. I was shaking uncontrollably. I was overwhelmed with negative thoughts....
God truly listens to me in my times of need.

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.”
