Gratitude in the Chaos

In this episode, Dave and Dante discuss the importance of being able to show gratitude, even in the midst of extreme chaos around us. Recently Dave lost a friend to suicide, and you’ll hear him talk through the raw emotion of the loss. While the episode was supposed to be about gratitude (it is, after all, the week of Thanksgiving), the conversation pivoted towards persevering through the storm, with the goal of being grateful for even the smallest things at the end of it all.

If you are struggling with thoughts of suicide, please PLEASE visit 988 Lifeline Website or call/text 988 (National Suicide Prevention Hotline) immediately.

Dante lives in the Chicago area with his wife and three children. Despite his day job on the floor of the CBOT, Dante's heart lays in the church. Dante is currently serving as a church Elder, leading a marriage mentoring small group with his wife, and co-leads the Men's Ministries at a multi-campus church.
