ILP-0115: Reach Out

Ask for help. Not because you are weak, but because you want to remain strong. ~ Les Brown In today's episode, I ask that you reach out to others for two broad reasons - to check up on your loved ones regularly especially during this difficult time and also to ask for help when you need it. I know that in our North American culture, asking for help might not be as comfortable as you would like but it is worth it. You are worth it. In this episode, I gave suggestions on how to actually ask for the help that you need. It works. Please listen to it and enjoy it!

ILP-0112: Look Up!

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will direct thy paths." Proverbs 3: 5-6 We are at that point in life that it has become evident that the arm of flesh has failed us and will continue to fail. In this episode, I call on you to look up to a higher power or more appropriately as I like to say, to look up to God for strength, for wisdom and direction through all the troubles and ongoing chaos. Start with God before looking elsewhere. Enjoy this short episode. Join the Immigrant Life community here: https://community.immigrantlife.ca/signup
