    The Road to Resilience: From Chaos to Celebration, With Sherri Mandell

I listen to a lot of classes ( I usually have a class in the background as I’m working) so many that I had hard time finding other things to listen to. Then BH I found Your podcast. It was the first podcast that I listened to. I have listened to every episode and even re listened. Even if I felt I could not relate I found alot relatable. I have really enjoyed and grown from these podcasts. From going out of my comfort zone, to becoming more controlled and organized, to even understanding others more. Baruch HaShem for this podcast.
Thank you.
