In what ways have you suffered? Maybe you have lost a loved one, had an accident, served as the primary caregiver to a loved one, lost your job, endured depression or anxiety, been falsely accused, experienced discrimination, been abused, or gone through a divorce. Regardless of the form your suffering takes, it can be very difficult to not let it lead to anger, bitterness, apathy, or retaliation.
During this course, you will learn the five most common sources of suffering in life and their Biblical roots. You will then learn four practical and Godly responses that can be applied to your suffering.
In addition to the amazing content you'll get in the videos, you'll enjoy surveys and a prayer guide that help you apply what you're learning!
