Nora has tasted a lot of different churches in the course of her spiritual search, and an important part of her quest included coming to grips with the parts of her that felt unloved and unlovable, that doubted that any church could be trusted. She has found a spiritual home, at present, at Unity Christ Center of Eau Claire.

I learned a lot about Nora I

I learned a lot about Nora I did not know before. Often while listening to the program I found myself crying, because I too have anger I often don't know what to do with, struggle with my belief/faith in God and the different churches' teachings, was married and am divorced, and am struggling to become a better person. Some days I feel like it's almost too long and too hard of a battle that I don't have the energy to fight and some days I'm much more enthusiastic and willing to do what I have to reach my goal of being a happier, more loving, kind, patient person. Today is a day I'm lonely and depressed (yes, I too have a so-called Mental Illness) and have little motivation to do much and don't feel very optimistic, but I have some hope I didn't have before and know "This Too Shall Pass" and like Nora feel there is some reason I'm where I am now and going through what I'm going through to reach a better place someday. I just wish it didn't take quite so long and was a little easier. I didn't rate this show, because I've never listened to any other ones, but it meant a lot to me personally and has caused me to really think a lot about what was said and the songs' messages. At first I thought I didn't want to take the time to listen to the whole thing, but knew I would talk that long to Nora on the phone or in person, if she was able to, about my difficulties, thoughts, wishes, hopes, dreams and want to know how she "understands" so much of me so well. I really do want to be a better person, but wonder how long it's going to take. The physical energy and endurance is not there today. I don't know what to do or who to call to help me today.
