God Will Provide. How to Cope with Financial Hardship

God has given us a gift.  Are you or someone you know having a difficult time?  Did your job define you?  Anastasia–Carol Kruse used to work in the human resources field and has experience from both sides of the desk.  Listen as she and Fr. Chris Metropulos of Hellenic College Holy Cross discuss the process of acceptance and prayer that can get you through the toughest times.

But first, we have a conversation between Fr. Chris and Erik Bohlin, a professional counselor who specializes in recovery from addiction and compulsive behaviors.  There are definite tools to help us gain control of a stressful situation.  Financial struggles are inevitable, and Erik offers helpful advice on how to stop fighting what you can’t control but do what you can control. If you or someone you know is going through a financial hardship reach out to your parish priest or contact us here at OCN and we will help you find the way to one that can speak with you.
