Standing Firm When Your World is Shaking

Join us for this 4 Part Presentation. Dates are March 19 & 26 and April 2 & 9.
There are times of turmoil in each of our lives – times when what we have known is shaken. We may have suffered loss – perhaps of a marriage, a loved one, or a job. In this presentation, we explore ways to weather these tumultuous events and come out the other side still standing, and ready to go on.
Presentations take place at 1:00 p.m. at the Petoskey Friendship Center by local life coach Lynne Zimmer.
