“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body.” -2 Corinthians 4:8-10
Resilience is useless without hardship. But in our darkness, how do we see the tools available to us? How do we use them?
From everyday disappointments to major hardships, we need tools to use, we need a map to guide us, and we need enough light to see things as they really are.

Come along with me. I’ll give you all I’ve got: in stories of my own struggles and victories, and in my research of our hearts, our brains, and the natural world around us. God is amazing. It is thrilling to discover Him.
“It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.” -Proverbs 25:2
