Back cover copy

Some days we wake to a world of crystal skies and bright possibilities. And other days it's to rain pelting our windows and thunder rattling our roofs. How can we stay strong when the storms of life hit--when a spouse leaves, a client sues, unemployment strikes, or our dreams fail to come true? Is it possible not just to weather these trials, but bound back even stronger through them?

After facing his own fierce storm, author and broadcaster Sheridan Voysey tried an experiment--he would read Jesus' Sermon on the Mount every day for a month. That experiment continued a second month, then a third, as he discovered Jesus' astounding invitation for weak people to become strong, little people to become great, all of us to find resilience by putting these radical teachings into practice.

Rich with stories and deep with insight, Resilient is designed to recalibrate your callings, relationships, spiritual practices, and life choices. Join Sheridan Voysey in following the One who promises this: Though the rain comes in torrents and the winds beat against you, you will stand, not collapse. You will be resilient.

Review quote

"When a heart is teachable in and through the trials of life, God grows a reservoir of wisdom through which he can move, act, and reveal. Sheridan Voysey is that heart and he shares much truth and wisdom in this book. You will be encouraged in your own heart to keep believing Jesus for your life. Thank you, Sheridan, for leading us to deeper waters of truth in Christ."--Denalyn Lucado, coauthor with Max Lucado of Lucado Treasury of Bedtime Prayers
