What would look differently in your life if you saw situations from an eternal perspective? What would you be able to see that you can't see right now? In this insightful talk on CD, Wendy Watson shares some examples from her own life when things were not the way they appeared to be. She demonstrates the importance of seeking the guidance of the Lord, who views our lives “through a wider angle lens,” for decisions that have eternal implications.
It takes tremendous courage to act upon personal revelation, especially when your friends and family aren't seeing the same “picture” you are. But ultimately, it is the only way to build meaningful relationships, find your own mission, and get through life safely and happily.

This Cd changed my life.

Faboulous, Fantastic, Funny, I can't say enough. I listened to this CD in my car(which doesn't take tapes) after my husband of 33 years left me and I was trying to put my life in perspective. The solitude of driving needed some healthy uplifting, soul searching, instead of sorrow and sadness, and this was exactly what I needed. What a truly wonderful inspiration this was for me. I can't thank the Lord enough for bringing this inspiration to me in my time of need.
Marvelous, Important, Endlessly Helpful
