In the autumn of 2010, Mei Mei Hu, a management consultant for McKinsey in New York, received an unexpected invitation from her mother, Chang Yi Wang, asking her to join her for Christmas in Shanghai.
Mei Mei always had a complicated relationship with her mother. “Chang Yi is very particular and exacting – which is part of her genius,” Mei Mei explains, sitting in a restaurant in Cold Spring Harbor, a former whaling community on Long Island’s North Shore. She’s tall and slim, with long dark hair pulled back in an unruly pony tail. She was born in Great Neck, a suburb of New York, in 1983. A few years later, her family moved to a large colonial house in Cold Spring Harbor. “I remember coming back from school with a test score of 98 per cent and all she said was – next time, kill those last two points,” she grins, exasperated. “So, much to her surprise, I avoided science in school. I spent the rest of my life trying not to work with my parents.” Instead, she studied economics at the University of Pennsylvania, where she met her husband, then trained to be a lawyer, and has spent most of her career as a management consultant.
When we think about blessings, we sometimes focus on material and physical benefits like homes, jobs, family, and health. But there are even greater spiritual provisions that we may not have considered. In this message, Dr. Stanley teaches us how to be ever mindful of the wealth of favor we receive from God, at the moment of salvation and every day thereafter.
As we intentionally recognize every good thing we see, hear, and hope for as coming from a generous heavenly Father, our lives will be filled with gratitude and praise.
“It is not good for the man to be alone” (Genesis 2:18). In the beginning, the first thing God declared bad was loneliness, and it still plagues humanity today. In this message, Dr. Stanley lays out a clear-cut path to overcoming this involuntary solitary confinement.
