RD&T’s contributing writer, Kathryn Sandford, shares three powerful strategies to help your friends when they are in crisis.
Life throws us curveballs without any warning. Some curveballs come from nowhere and some send us signals that they are coming, but we choose, for whatever reason, to ignore the signs.
