What becomes of the person who moves 23 times before they are 19-years-old?
And who, as a teenager, lives in a country at war for almost 2 1/2 years?

That’s me.

Belinda McDanel 2019

You become a resilient person and learn to navigate change. I share lessons I’ve learned on my journey in life. The question I’m asked most often is: How are you so resilient? This blog answers that question from many angles.

I strengthen people with story telling, especially people going through change, or suffering.  My writing is a call to the Christian Church, and myself, up to an identity that doesn’t include condemnation, exclusion and toxic relationships. An encouragement to have authentic connections. A place to nurture resilience, to think and process freely using these methods: explore, question, and wrestle.

In this blog, I explore what it means to have strength of heart in three areas:

  • Change
  • Adversity
  • Reformation

My Worldview in Three Sentences

Every person has a resilient human spirit.

Every person can access their spirit with practice.

Every human spirit who is connected with the Spirit of God has an unlimited source of strength.
