- Beyond Belief: The Challenge of Undeserved Suffering and Loss Posted by Cardinal, LLC
- As human beings, we learn early in life that to live is to suffer. Although the experience of suffering is never pleasant or welcomed, this is not the greatest threat in life. Rather, the most daunting challenge for human beings is meaningless suffering, suffering that exceeds our ability to comprehend. Inexplicable suffering and undeserved loss test our foundational beliefs, literally bringing us to our knees and prompting us to question all that we believe to be true. It is during the times that try our souls that we rely on our spiritual beliefs. What happens if our foundational beliefs fail to support or sustain us during the times of trial? Where do we turn when life circumstances are beyond belief? Explore these questions and more as we examine the timeless story of Job.

- Calling All Women - Rise 'n Shine! 8:00 AM - 2:30 PM Posted by Cardinal, LLC
- It is time for women to realize that with age comes an incredible opportunity to SHINE! It is more than an opportunity, it is our responsibility. In the first half of life, our focus is often on family and career - giving priority to the needs and desires of others. As our families mature and our careers plateau, questions arise which tickle the imagination and prompt serious reflection. Who am I? What ignites my passion? What do I choose to do with my life? Who do I choose to become? This is the gift of aging - utilizing the wisdom derived from the first half of life to engage and explore the challenging questions prompted by significant life changes. If we are to light the way for subsequent generations of women - we must RISE to the occasion. Ladies, It?s Time to SHINE!

- Out of Bounds: The Need to Know Our Limits Posted by Cardinal, LLC
- Out of Bounds: The Need to Know Your Limits Boundaries are necessary behavioral constructs if we are to have healthy relationships with other people, personally and professionally. We need to be aware of where we end and the other person begins. Boundaries are established to protect both persons, honoring and respecting each individual. Some boundaries are defined by legal mandates while others are defined by mutual consent, assumptions, or cultural norms. Often within organizations the discussion of professional boundaries occurs after a boundary violation that prompts a corrective action. Organizations and individuals are much better served if proactive education is offered to raise the awareness around the need and purpose of boundaries.

- The Courage to Mourn Posted by Cardinal, LLC
- Human beings are inherently relational creatures. Among other things, we attach to people, things, ideas, titles, money, and dreams. Hence, we are consequently at risk of experiencing loss and grief as attachments change or end. Mourning our losses requires courage ? courage to feel the pain, courage to address the void, courage to integrate the loss, and courage to re-engage with life. Far too often in our society, the time needed to mourn is not recognized or honored as we rush to return to work and get ?back to normal.? We, instead, need to recognize the need to mourn our losses if we are to move through and beyond our grief.
