  • Never Quit Climbing: Overcoming Life’s Seemingly Insurmountable Mountains

    Gary Sinclair, Director, Never Quit Climbing

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Motivational

    We all have mountains to climb, some big, some little. But often when confronted with ours, they seem like Mt. Everest or Denali. They loom large and take our breath and motivation away making it difficult to even start to overcome them. But Gary and his wife, avid hikers, were forced to face a mountain with Jackie, her stage 3 cancer. And when this new peak in their lives threatened to paralyze them by its size and magnitude they began with God's help to climb it the way they climbed actual mountains of granite... one switchback at a time. MORE >

    Together they learned practical strategies for both preparing for any personal mountain, getting started, looking for potential problems and getting up the trail a little bit at a time. Gary uses both humor and poignant illustrations to keep audiences on the edge of their seat while able to take something with them to tackle their own challenges.
