Looking at the country today, it’s easy to fall into despair. As the radical left pushes policies and ideas leading to the degradation of our nation, it’s hard not to lose hope.

But the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, says there’s a way to keep going in the face of encroaching darkness: Rely on your own faith and fortitude.

“Your battle is truly between destiny and drama,” Rodriguez says. “And when your hunger for righteousness is greater than your fear of criticism, nothing can stop you. When your integrity is more important to you than your influence, nothing can stop you.”

Rodriguez joins “The Daily Signal Podcast” to discuss his new book “Persevere With Power” and to give our listeners the hope they may need to get through these troubled times.
