The Gifts from Crossroads Career: Hope and Encouragement

It was 2020, the pandemic was in full swing and unemployment had hit its all-time high in years. Unfortunately my husband and I experienced this when we both lost our jobs.

Hope in Transition

Work shapes so much of life, and yet it can be difficult to think about, confusing to develop a good perspective on, and scary to search for a great fit throughout different seasons.
