How do we get through life's challenges? How do we survive as Square pegs in a round world? With over twenty years of experience working with volunteers, Dr. Joel Plaag has a few suggestions to live in this moment. In his latest book, Dr. Plaag discusses some of the events he's experienced as a music director and as the author of Choir Notes, the weekly newsletter of the Cypress Creek Community Chorale.
Relating to others is complex. Sometimes people boost our self-esteem. Sometimes they don't like us. Sometimes we read more into situations than what's truly there.
In Singing in the Moment, Dr. Plaag looks at the nuances of relating with others using fifty short stories that reflect lessons learned from his experience with volunteer choirs and his own spiritual journey. Through humor, seriousness and vulnerability, Dr. Plaag shares narratives including working with others, friendships, acceptance, growing artistically and handling fear.
Designed as a helpful handbook, this book can be read in order or as a reference when needed.
