Pain, whether it be physical, trauma related, relational or spiritual, can render us unproductive, ineffective, and angry. Pain can lead us down a path we do not want to travel, yet we may not have the tools needed to learn how to thrive in the midst of it. How we respond to our pain will set the stage for our futures. Who we become is greatly dependent upon the choices we make when life is difficult. This week we will focus on how we handle our physical pain. Join us as we speak with special guest, Kathleen Schwab about negotiating the challenging journey of living with pain.
I have been married for twenty two years, and am the mother of a 14 year old girl and an 18 year old boy. Although I think of myself mostly as a Mom, I've worked as a high school teacher, junior college teacher, office manager, doula, midwife's assistant and phelbotomist. After my chronic pain made holding a job impossible, I started my own business from home, planning my work around not just my skills, but my health requirements.I am only able to work a few hours a day, and cannot drive. My business allows me to use my intelligence, skills and passions. I teach English classes around my diningroom table for homeschooled high school and middle school students. I also write and self publish guides to teaching classic literature.
