I have been listening to Nicky Clinch tell her story of transformationContinue reading “LETTING GO… 8/31/2021 … Tuesday with Ryan”
No matter what, we can wake up and remind ourselves of our potential and of the holy strength and love that holds us up. When we have been centered and awakened to the beauty and joy around us, then we can also wake up and work through the places where we might have lost ourselvesContinue reading “WAKING UP!… 7/29/2019 … Thursday”
Barriers between people. Divisiveness, violence, emotional upheaval, fear. This is not who we were created to be! We were made for so much more.
