What if our weirdest, most annoying characteristics actually serve a purpose? Life Coach Laurie Wallin asks her clients that question as she helps them uncover their strengths and passions, let go of resentments, and live with joy. Raising a child with differences, Laurie is learning that God’s design for every life is different and that He offers significant strengths to be used in unique ways.
