Tom Bump joins us today to discuss his book, Valleys Over Mountains: A Guide Through the Hard Seasons. He begins by defining what a valley is, noting that although valleys tend to have a negative connotation, he believes valleys are better than mountain tops. Tom explains why it’s important to embrace the seasons of being in the valley instead of distracting ourselves or running ahead to the next thing. Tom describes ways he has seen a mix-up in priorities contribute to suffering in the valley. He touches on resources to help through times of helplessness and hopelessness, and Tom shares lessons that can be learned in valley seasons.
