Relentlessly Resilient

Retired Marine Luke Brooks on how growing up military shaped his life for April’s Month of the Military Child

April is the Month of the Military Child, and on today’s Relentlessly Resilient podcast our hosts talk to a military child turned Marine, turned father. Luke Brooks grew up in a household where both parents served in the Navy and inspired their children with their examples. Today, Luke shares what that was like, how it inspired him and his brother to serve, and raising his own children while serving. He shares with listeners how this experience taught him respect, resilience, and responsibility. 

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.
