“When Letting Go Means Holding On” an essay by Denise on ‘Cultivating’ – an online Publication

Permit me to urge you to treat yourself to soul-nourishing fare over at ‘Cultivating’ — a delightful literary and visual smorgasbord. The theme of the Fall issue of this online publication is ‘Letting Go’.

I was once again privileged to have an essay, When Letting Go Means Holding On, published in the reading/journal section.

There I relate the events leading to my migration to America and share aspects of the struggle to hold on to the promises of a trustworthy God, when letting go of the familiar feels like free fall.
