Relentlessly Resilient

Why having a Patriotic “America Season” means so much to Gold Star Widow Jennie Taylor

With Memorial Day barely in our rearview mirror, it’s time to talk about the stretch of time between that holiday, past labor day, to Veterans Day. With summer parades, city days, and patriotic holidays, host Jennie Taylor calls this season “America Season,” it means so much to her. In this episode of Relentlessly Resilient, she discusses how patriotism is a feeling of gratitude that encourages service actions. She discusses the work The Major Brent Taylor Foundationhas been doing to uplift individuals, families, and whole communities. Producer KellieAnn joins this episode as a guest cohost. 

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.
