Lesson 6: Adversity

Lesson 6:  Adversity Can Help Us Grow

Key Concept:  We need to come to see our trials and troubles as opportunities to grow, expand, and learn about ourselves and our divine nature.

Adversity is tough.  There’s no getting around it to be sure.  However, as a popular proverb amongst sailors points out: “We cannot control the wind, but we can adjust the sails.”  This basically means that while we cannot always choose the means by which adversity will come or the severity of it, we can control how we react to each trial as it comes to us.  This is not new advice by any means, but hopefully we can present some interesting ways that it might be met and understood in this lesson.
