Tom O'Toole is the author of a children's book entitled The Crabapple Tree, a story of courage and resilience in the face of relentless opposition and criticism. He inspires readers to listen for God's "Greatest Voice" of love over the din of judgement from other voices. He speaks to the importance of daily prayer, deliberately choosing to connect with God and others, and walking in fellowship with others even if they disagree. Tom is also a musician and an avid amateur photographer. He is an established professional in the nonprofit sector with over 35 years of management, resource development, and information technology expertise in various faith-based, community development, and social service nonprofit organizations. Tom helps mission-driven people and organizations acquire the resources they need to advance positive and lasting change in the world. Tom and I had a rich discussion on how Christians who disagree on a handful of verses can still engage in meaningful conversation and relationships with one another. Please hear our hearts calling for unity among believers in spite of different understandings of Scripture. This episode was bathed in much prayer from both of us and we offer it to you as a model for heartfelt fellowship. May you always listen for God's greater voice speaking of his infinite love for you in spite of the challenges you face.  Tom's website
Connie Baker inspires people to thrive with grace and ease regardless of their circumstances. She learned about resilience when she desperately needed it in 2008 and began exploring tools and techniques to begin self-regulating her response to the stress in her life. Then, 10 years later, when she was diagnosed with breast cancer, she knew she was equipped to navigate the uncertainty ahead, which led her to write her book, Stay On: Build Resilience and Thrive While Facing Cancer. Her book offers practical steps to grow more resilient. Connie has been involved in healthcare for decades. After graduate school, she became a child life specialist, working with pediatric patients and their families. During that time, she co-created a pain assessment tool that is used around the world, the Wong-Baker FACES® Pain Rating Scale. Perhaps you have seen it. She is the executive director of the Wong-Baker FACES Foundation as well as an encourager to people experiencing life challenges. And today, most people are.

Zookeeper PJ Beaven shares her journey to greater strength, endurance, and energy. PJ shares: "I had a dream job working with some of the most incredible animals on the planet (dolphins, penguins, elephants, and more), but I was miserable-- I was tired all the time, overweight, weak, moody, and suffered from chronic pain. When I realized I couldn't take care of the animals unless I started taking care of myself, I changed my life and my impact on the world. By implementing my own philosophies of ZooFit, I lost 50 pounds and gained a whole new life-- full of energy, love, and hope. I became a better zookeeper, and even a better conservationist. I wasn't just talking the talk, I was a radiant exemplar, walking the walk of healthy actions for myself and for the planet. And when others noticed, I was able to help change their lives for the better with my practices as well." PJ has created a fitness program unlike any other. Drawing upon her fifteen years experience as a zookeeper, she makes fitness empowering, engaging, and impactful by using the principles of positive reinforcement, enrichment, and conservation. Animals have been her greatest coaches, teaching her how to take better care of the planet by taking care of herself.

Our culture seems more divided now than ever. Jesus has the ultimate solution if we are just willing to take him up it. The world will be able to recognize followers of Christ by their love for all people, not by their self-righteous condemnation of everything they disagree with. Hear the double-sided message Jesus has for sinners who are publically shamed AND the judgemental religious people ready to throw rocks. Consider this our rally cry to wake up and love like Jesus, because He's the only one with the credentials to throw stones and he chose not too.

The game-changing factor to overcoming challenges, persevering through trials, and living with purpose and significance is prayer. Jesus tells us, "I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing." (John 15:5). We stay connected to God through daily, consistent, heartfelt prayer. But carrying on a conversation with a God we cannot see, hear, or touch can be difficult for us. Join me as I walk you step-by-step how to pray in a deep and meaningful way. Powerful prayer is not about saying the right words, it's about sharing your heart with your heavenly father.
