Through the Eyes of a Lion releases today from an author new to Lifeway Adults. This study takes us through a personal story author Levi Lusko and his family experienced and shows how we can find incredible power despite impossible pain.
But, who is Levi Lusko? This pastor, father, and leader serves in many capacities where he’s located in the northwest.
Levi answered some “get-to-know-you” questions exclusively for Lifeway Adults at the outset of this new release:
When did you first feel called into ministry or know that you wanted to be a pastor?
When I was two years old. I either wanted to be a pastor or a baker (mostly so I could eat cookies and white sugar). I didn’t pursue baking nor do I know how to bake. I always knew I was called to be a pastor since a young age.
What’s your favorite thing about your wife?
Her laugh, making her laugh, and being around her when she laughs.
What’s the most underrated Montana restaurant?
In my family, it’s Taco Del Sole.
Do you have any hidden talents or hobbies?
Do ice baths count? If not, what about saunas? If not, I like reading.
What’s your favorite spiritual discipline or habit?
Spiritual discipline: silence. Habit: tithing.
What’s the best part of being a pastor for you?
Being there for people in the most difficult moments in their lives, and in the most happy times—weddings, funerals, and everything in between.
What’s one sentence of encouragement you would give to other pastors doing ministry in 2021?
Our ministry is the most important when it’s the most difficult. It’s difficult right now because it’s complicated, so don’t quit just because it’s hard. It’s the most necessary it’s ever been.

About the study:
It’s hard to understand in the moment, but sorrow can give you perspective, purpose, and a platform. It’s called a “roar story.” And you can use it to inspire others to see the bright future beyond their darkest days. Whether you’ve suffered in the past, are in a trial now, or want to prepare for the inevitable challenges to come, this Bible study can provide help, hope, and healing, all for the glory of God.
