Richard Foster spent a year searching for and learning about the vanishing virtue of humility.


Because the Lord invited him to – and because he noticed that few were talking about humility and the world seemed to be pushing against it more and more.


He captured his journey of discovery in his newest book, Learning Humility: A Year of Searching for a Vanishing Virtue.


Richard didn’t write from the seat of one who has it all figured out but as a fellow traveler who wants us to notice all the beautiful sights along the way.


Listen in to this conversation – and then grab his book.

Some highlights from our conversation:

  • Richard tells us why writing on the topic of humility was difficult and how his family responded to the project when he told them about it.
  • Brenda shares why she was drawn to walking with Richard as he developed this book and what it taught her about humility.
  • We discuss what Jesus teaches us about humility as a way of life in Matthew 18 and beyond.
  • We talk about why Richard chose the Lakota calendar and Lakota virtues to help him write the book and what he learned about the Lakota people.
  • We discuss Lent and how humility is a part of Lent.
  • Finally, Richard reads his parting words to the readers of his book to us – and Brenda prays a lovely prayer over us.

A Spiritual Warfare Prayer against the Strategies of the Enemy - Your Daily Prayer - April 13

Dear friends, it is a fight for the devotion of our minds. We either stay with God and demolish demonic strategies being set up against us, or we fall into fear, worry, and anxiety that lead us away from God.
