Thriving Through Uncertainty 
special guest speaker: Tama Kieves
 
Sunday, November 11th ~ 11:00 a.m.

The only reason you're not living the life of your dreams is because you don't know how to handle uncertainty. The truth is you are not really that uncertain; the path is already within you and you have everything you need to follow it.  Join us and special guest Tama Kieves this Sunday to explore how to use any uncertainty as a launching pad for joy. Because when life doesn't go according to your plan, that's when your true destiny begins.
 
New on Sunday mornings!
