“Behind every challenge is an opportunity.” The last two years of the COVID pandemic have been a difficult time for everyone, but like all other challenges we go through, they are also an opportunity to act in courage and faith to lift others up.

Dr. Turner concludes his candid reminisces about hardships from his past, including adopting four children, two marriages that ended in divorce, taking the biggest risk of his career, and losing close friends to COVID. But most importantly, he shares lessons learned from these adversities.   

Join Dr. Turner on today’s episode of Manna as he shares a message of hope and encouragement.

Key Takeaways

We all face challenges in life, some more difficult than others. For Dr. Turner, these included:

  • Adopting four young children
  • Two marriages that ended in divorce
  • Giving up a well-paying, comfortable job
  • Losing two dear friends to COVID
  • But what ultimately matters is how we respond to those challenges. “The man who thinks he can and the man who thinks he can’t are both right. Which one are you?” Henry Ford.

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County.
