When he refused to go against his faith, Daniel of the Old Testament was placed in a den of lions. Unlike the lion cubs Ganel-Lyn Condie’s son was able to hold and play with on his African mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, these lions were starving, ravenous beasts. Yet Daniel remained unscathed and exited triumphant from the den unharmed. Because of his faith in God, Daniel was made lionproof, explains Condie in her latest audio recording of a fireside titled “You are Lionproof.”
Throughout her 60-minute presentation, Condie describes how, with God’s help, it is possible to be made lionproof, fireproof and waterproof. Using various scriptural and personal examples, she tells how to withstand latter-day lions, heat and storms.
Condie declares that those who suffer from addiction, depression and anxiety can rise each time they fall and continue trying again. She shares a deeply personal story of her younger sister, who committed suicide at the age of 40, and emphasizes the importance of having five trustworthy people to go to during stressful times. As she speaks, Condie urges those listening to stay in their bodies, and declares that no matter what lies Satan persists in, things will get better, and the world needs each and every single person in it.
Condie shares another wonderful personal story about her son who, as a teenager, felt he was overlooked and undervalued in school. Several years later, to his surprise, he learned how one small kind act of his had deeply impacted another’s life.
“You are Lionproof” is a wonderful motivational CD that can encourage and enlighten all ages. Touching on subjects that could be viewed as difficult, Condie doesn’t shy away from hard topics. Instead, she uses those difficult subjects to help listeners feel that, although trying at times, overcoming struggles is possible.
A graduate of Arizona State University, Condie has experienced many life challenges. She lives in Utah County with her family.
