Preparing You For Crisis

A crisis is more than a natural disaster, it’s all the events that alter our state of emotional well-being. Imagine being fully equipped when a friend loses a loved one, their parent has to go to the hospital, or a pet of 12 years is no longer with them.

Equipping You To Respond To Life
