It’s no secret that many people struggle in life: job-related problems, relationship challenges, mental health issues, financial uncertainty. The list goes on and on. Yet, some people are remarkably resilient in the face of chronic adversity. Against daunting odds, they manage to flourish amidst nearly overwhelming challenges. In Paradise Lost, John Milton wrote, “Even the demons are encouraged when their chief is ‘not lost in loss itself.” Noah Kilroy has much to say about coping with adversity and despair and, ultimately, rising from the proverbial ashes.
