No one is immune to life’s trials and difficulties. The Lord equips us with tools and special people in our lives to help cope with the bumps, twists and turns in each of our personalized journeys. “Life is like a piano, the white keys represent happiness and the black keys show sadness. But as you go through life’s journey, remember that the black keys also create music.” Through personal stories, music and applicable, real-life examples, this workshop illustrates how the Lord takes the broken pieces of our lives and turns them into something beautiful.
