Jim Thornber continues this week as the guest in Next Step Leadership. His stories remind listeners of lessons he’s learned from orthodox obedience, holy joy, biblical study, and deep grief. Jim hopes audiences hear from his heart as he reveals God’s peace as it visits during life’s tough experiences. Listen to his words as he talks about his wife's battle with Covid and her death. Hearing Jim’s honesty and his tears keeps the focus of this podcast on real life. Real life includes grief. It includes sadness. It includes tears. It includes questions. It includes God’s love and His peace. Leaders must remember those facts. Leaders also must remember the invitation and calling to grieve well. We are not meant to live life—and lead others—alone.
