Relentlessly Resilient

Widow Mindi Holmgren on continuing her chaplain husband’s calling after his tragic drowning

Corey Holmgren, a Chaplain Captian in the Utah Army National Guard as well as a Marriage and Family Therapist felt called to help individuals, serve his country, and support his family. But tragically at the age of 35, he passed away in a drowning incident while on a family outing. His wife Mindi now continues his calling with The Corey Holmgren Memorial Fund which provides therapy scholarships to those who need it most. Mindi joins this episode of Relentlessly Resilient to share her and Corey’s story, and how she has chosen to keep working and honoring ‘The sacredness found in suffering.”

Even though we live in challenging times we can become Relentlessly Resilient as we lean on and learn from one another’s experiences. Hosts Jennie Taylor and Michelle Scharf are no strangers to overcoming adversity; Michelle lost her husband to cancer, while Jennie’s husband Major Brent Taylor was killed in the service of our country. Their stories bond them together and now listeners can join them weekly as they visit with others enduring challenges and who teach us how they are exercising resiliency, finding value in their grief, and purpose in moving forward.
