Relentlessly Resilient

Kari Malkovich Part 2: Fighting fires goes beyond emergency management, it takes community kindness

This week’s Relentlessly Resilient podcast continues our conversation with community leader Kari Malkovich from Woodland Hills, Utah. While part 1 of her two-part podcast series focused on her journey toward personal resilience, this week’s episode centers on the community resilience in her town, as they literally fought fires in 2018 and supported one another through the flames and floods beyond. Kari continues to give hard-won advice from her experiences in emergency management, communications, and faith-filled prayer powered by action. 

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.
