There are times in life that we encounter difficult experiences. It’s easy to feel frustrated and overwhelmed. But rather than being consumed by negative emotions, what if we could make meaning of our experiences – even difficult ones.

Award-winning author Sakinah Hofler suggests we use creative writing as a tool to process and make meaning of our difficult experiences.
