Please join us to celebrate the publication of the Rev. Dr. Tracy Mehr-Muska’s book, Weathering the Storm: Simple Strategies for Being Peaceful and Prepared.
This book emerged from the Rev. Dr. Mehr-Muska’s doctoral research in Hartford Seminary’s Doctor of Ministry program, from which she graduated in 2017.
According to the book summary: “This book offers simple and proven strategies to develop resilience that will be of enormous benefit to anyone who is yearning to feel more peaceful and prepared. … Weathering the Storm also poses insightful questions for reflection and offers concrete strategies for implementation that can be used individually or in group contexts such as faith communities, families, and therapeutic relationships. Just as we practice fire drills before a fire happens, this book will help us be better equipped for the eventual storms of life so we can live with greater peace and preparedness.”
