About The Podcast
Veterans transitioning out of lengthy military careers find themselves particularly vulnerable to a variety of life struggles, including depression, addiction, and suicide. Eric Brew knows this firsthand—when his 25-year military career ended right as he was going through a second divorce, he came close to taking his own life. But with God’s help, he found his way back from the abyss, and today, as the Georgia head of the Warriors Set Free ministry, he’s helping other struggling vets do the same. This week Eric has a frank and enlightening conversation about his own struggles and how they guide his ministry work, as well as the challenges of parenthood, what he’s learned from his military service, and the need to understand the “voice and character” of the Lord.
