WAITING - When the Soul Begins to Quiver
with LAURA LEE PERKINS, MS
Life is about soul-making, which requires creativity in how we respond to personal challenges. No one has an easy walk through life; we are all tested. Some crises are multi-layered and involve many people. Should we act or should we wait until things settle down? Some problems linger, testing us for months or even years. We yearn to respond, but we don’t know what to do. Patience grows thin. Why is this happening? What am I supposed to learn? Instructor’s optional workbook will be available for $10.
