I am honored to work with all these amazing women! Take a listen to this week’s Relentlessly Resilient podcast to learn more about the wonderful Amanda Dickson. Seriously, I had a hard time selecting the best-of audio for this one because she was just so insightful.
KSL NewsRadio’s morning host Amanda Dickson’s cheerful voice and joyful disposition have made the radio waves along the Wasatch Front a welcoming place for decades. But behind that iconic voice, there is a story of resilience that many listeners have not been aware of. Amanda Dickson joins Jennie and Michelle today to share the story about her childhood as a student-athlete who went off to boarding school at the tender age of 12, the medical problem that stopped her from competing, her journey to Utah and radio, and the work it takes to create a loving blended family. For her, resilience is more than continuing the climb, it’s about pulling yourself up from wallowing in your trama, and even though you will still feel hurt, loving anyway.
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.
