About the Course…

Many of the topics that can help you joyfully and productively participate in life are introduced or addressed in my book titled¬†Sifting: A Story About Life and Well-Being. Therefore, I thought I would use Sifting as a textbook (albeit a somewhat non-traditional one) for a self-study course on well-being and flourishing. Over the next few months (on Sunday mornings), I will post the individual chapters of Sifting on this blog with author’s notes that hopefully will give you some insight on how to live well and prosper. I hope you enjoy the book and ideas. No fees, no tests…just a course to provoke your thoughts. I encourage you to spend some quality time thinking about the issues and questions listed at the end of each chapter. Here are links to each chapter in the order they were posted:
