Lost in Nepal: The Power of Tenacity with Keith Rennison
Keith is a Colorado native and loves the mountains there. He spent 40+ years as an insurance agent and certified financial planner. Keith spent two years in the Army with a tour in the Vietnam War. That experience taught him to never waste time, it’s too precious, and to that end, he has lived an interesting life racing cars and bicycles, skiing, foreign travel, and climbing many of Colorado’s famous Fourteener’s. It was that love of hiking and climbing that lead Keith to Nepal twice in the 1990s. His new award-winning book “Tenacity: You Don’t Have to Get Lost in Nepal to Find Yourself, But it Helps!” is based on the second trip when he traveled alone and got lost for a few days in the Himalayas. He started racing bicycles at 54 and became the President of the Colorado Bicycle Racing Association for Seniors (COBRAS) in 2011. Keith gained international acclaim with his 2004 article “Compassion at Death’s Door” in The American Legion magazine. His other books include: “The Pain and Joy of Love, A Collection of Black & White Photography, Short Stories, and Poetry”, the illustrated children’s book on grieving “Zooch the Pooch, My Best Friend” co-authored with friend Michael Kelley, and three Zooch audiobooks. Looking to expand his horizons after retirement Keith joined a local Toastmasters club and learned public speaking. In 2016, Keith joined the National Speakers Association (NSA) Colorado Chapter and won the Member of the Year in 2017. He now sits on the Board of NSA-Colorado as the Secretary/VP of Operations. http://www.keithrenninson.com  https://www.facebook.com/thetenacityexpert  https://www.instagram.com/keithrenninson/  https://www.linkedin.com/in/keithrenninson/ YouTube: https://bit.ly/3esNVBr  _______________________________________________________________ Listen to more episodes at https://ResilientLifeHacks.com  MY BOOKS: Undefeated: From Trial to Triumph, How to Stop Fighting the Wrong Battles and Start Living Victoriously https://www.amazon.com/Undefeated-Trial-Triumph-Stand-Strong/dp/1640850872   Undaunted in Darkness: Finding Your Path From Broken to Bold, Your Daily Battle Plan for a Winning Life https://www.amazon.com/Undaunted-Darkness-Finding-Broken-Strong/dp/B09MYR8TH9/ Get my TOP 20 RESILIENT LIFE HACKS here! https://elizabeth-meyers.ck.page/1a1ef0ef89 Join our RESILIENT LIFE TRIBE: https://facebook.com/groups/resilientlifetribe

Healing From Toxic Relationships with Gloria BattiniChoosing to Face Life Head On with Carey PortellThe Real and Often Overlooked Danger of Clergy Abuse with Sandy Kirkham
A church is where an insecure sixteen-year-old girl should feel welcome, happy, and most importantly, safe. Tragically for some, the church can become a place of great harm. In her book, Let Me Prey Upon You, Sandy Phillips Kirkham details her account of how a charismatic youth minister preyed upon her, a betrayal which left her broken, with a shattered faith, and the ultimate shame of being blamed and forced from the church she loved. From their very first meeting, the new youth minister slowly and methodically turned the sacred relationship of a trusted spiritual leader to one of abuse: sexual, emotional, and physical. When his actions were discovered, he was simply moved to another church, leaving Sandy to pay for his deeds. She was not his first victim, nor would she be his last. Despite a successful and happy life as a wife, mother, and friend, Sandy successfully concealed her abuse for twenty-seven years until a trigger forced her to face the truth. Sandy’s story will take you on her journey of healing which began in 2004, first by seeking justice and closure from both the pastor and the church. Her strength and courage will inspire you. Let Me Prey Upon You details Sandy’s journey from innocent sixteen-year-old victim to survivor and advocate. Sandy Kirkham and her husband Bill enjoy life with their two grown children, two beautiful granddaughters, and two fairly well-behaved dogs. Sandy continues to use her voice to help victims of clergy abuse. She currently serves on the board of Council Against Child Abuse. Sandy has spoken before the Ohio Senate, a Maryland court, and appeared on a local television show in Boston. Her story, “Stolen Innocence,” was told in a documentary produced by The Hope of Survivors. Sandy works with survivors conducting victim support conferences. She has participated in The Voice of the Faithful (VOTF) panels moderated by SNAP (Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests), sharing her perspective from the non-Catholic point of view. Sandy has been a presenter/speaker at major events on clergy abuse including the Hope & Healing Conference. https://sandyphillipskirkham.com/  https://www.facebook.com/KirkhamAuthor/  _______________________________________________________________ Listen to more episodes at https://ResilientLifeHacks.com  MY BOOKS: Undefeated: From Trial to Triumph, How to Stop Fighting the Wrong Battles and Start Living Victoriously https://www.amazon.com/Undefeated-Trial-Triumph-Stand-Strong/dp/1640850872   Undaunted in Darkness: Finding Your Path From Broken to Bold, Your Daily Battle Plan for a Winning Life https://www.amazon.com/Undaunted-Darkness-Finding-Broken-Strong/dp/B09MYR8TH9/ Get my TOP 20 RESILIENT LIFE HACKS here! https://elizabeth-meyers.ck.page/1a1ef0ef89 Join our RESILIENT LIFE TRIBE: https://facebook.com/groups/resilientlifetribe
