Hear from Laura Ingalls Wilder, as she reflects almost 40 years after, her book The Long Winter which tells the story of her family surviving a horrific 8-month-long winter of 1880-1881 on the sparsely inhabited Dakota Territory. She'll shares what lessons she learned from that Hard Winter.
These are feelings we can all relate to, perhaps now more than ever: dealing with uncertainty, social isolation, and anxiety about the future. And the lessons are just as true as ever: have faith, have hope, and to ask for help when you need it.
