Listen to My Life: The Wisdom of Recognizing and Responding to God in My Story

By Sharon Swing, Co-Author of Listen to My Life - The Wisdom of Recognizing and Responding to God in My Story I arrived at this particular life crossroads after an exhausting three-year run that included a challenging "hair-on-fire" job while parenting a preschooler.

Life’s Detours

by Sharon Swing, Co-Author of Listen To My Life On a recent road trip from Chicago to New York City, we encountered a sign that indicated there was a detour 20 miles ahead.  We stopped, had lunch, enjoyed a small town off the interstate and obliviously got back on the interstate only to run into a traffic jam and a mandatory detour that took us 80 miles and more than an hour out of our [...]
