Pat Livingston grew up believing that if you work hard and do what you think is right, all will be well. No one told her that life would be chaotic. But the chaos of ordinary life can be just another name for energy and power, untamed and unformed but not bad. It can be shaped and channeled, tamed and reinterpreted in ways that unleash our creativity.
Now in dozens of good humored stories filled with hope and encouragement, she shares with us her lifetime of taming chaos.
She not only invites us to do the same but also assures us that in the midst of all the “messiness” we’ll discover, as she did, a blessing...and a hope.

PATRICIA LIVINGSTON leads workshops, seminars and retreats across the United States and abroad. Her first book is Lessons of the Heart (Ave Maria Press). She has also published numerous talks and presentations on tape, including From Bitter to Better and The Spirituality of Struggle (St. Anthony Messenger Press).From AudioFile:
A humble storyteller in her 60s tells a graceful personal story about how she coped with the unexpected tragedies in her life. Never self-pitying, her message is that things often look bleak and unmanageable before we find the hope we need to fashion some kind of life order after a loss. She's a warm and genuine speaker, and a bit of a tease: Just when her slow pace and drawn-out stories make one's attention wander, in comes a gem of an insight that appears like an unexpected gift. Overall, this is a loving message from an author who will make listeners want to get cozy, stop thinking so hard, deal with their losses, and believe in a better tomorrow.
