Psalm 73 says that God is the strength of our hearts. But how do we draw from that strength to replenish our tired souls? John Eldredge joins Stasi on her podcast today to share the good news that God's provision for these challenging days is available, and it is absolutely free. John lets us in on what compelled him to write his new book, Resilient: Restoring Your Weary Soul in These Turbulent Times, and offer its incredible heart-strengthening tools. We all need a deeper life with God; we all need to tap into the resources of his Kingdom to receive significant replenishment for the days ahead. John shows us how.
