Tuesdays with Morrie: Lessons for Living
Secrets for Healing
Maybe it was a grandparent, a teacher, or a colleague -- someone who helped you see the world as a more profound place and gave you advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom, that person was Morrie Schwartz, his former college professor. Tuesdays with Morrie is a magical chronicle of their time together during Morrie’s battle with ALS and Mitch’s struggle to find meaning and purpose in his life. Mitch will share the priceless lessons learned from this wise friend during his last days.
Healing is not necessarily going to see the doctor. Many people mistakenly think healing means curing. When we walk out of the doctor’s office wanting more, the “more” is what healing is. If we explore that “more”, we can find healing. Dr. William Hablitzel, MD will inspire attendees with his secrets for healing and how all people, not just medical professionals, can bring healing into their lives and work.
Hope and the Human Experience
Living life with intention became very clear for Brooke Billingsley when she was surprised with a cancer diagnosis in 2011. She has personally learned the importance of hope in the midst of healing and states, “We see our healing through the hopeful words and actions of our caregivers.” Brooke will share what the power of hope can do to help others in the midst of their healing journey.
