What advice would you give to someone starting out in ministry? Let the sole purpose of your life and ministry be to please God. If you live and minister to please God you may please men as well, but if you live and minister to please men you will seldom, if ever, please God (Gal. 1:10).

Resilient by Ron Luce
Resilient by Ron Luce

  Ron Luce, founder of Teen Mania, has written Resilient: Live Beyond a Feel-Good Faith and Build a Spiritual Foundation that Lasts.

   Resilient explores the watered-down, feel-good ways the Christian faith is often presented that result in a shaky foundation. Sharing the real-life struggle he experienced when his oldest daughter, Hannah, almost died during a plane crash that claimed the lives of four of her friends, Ron Luce shows you how to:
  • Train yourself for endurance rather than just strength
  • Build your confidence in God when you don't understand
  • Develop a resilient faith that will get you through the good and the bad
