A cacophony of sounds erupts around me. People bustling about, cleaning cabins, making beds, transferring luggage to the car, all a great contrast to the ever-flowing rush of the stream that is before me. I’m in Twin Lakes, Colorado at my family’s cabins. For seven days I’ve been surrounded by my best friend’s family – [...]

Just Show Up – Validation

By |2017-07-12T08:44:29-07:00July 12th, 2017|Blog|

Due to circumstances beyond our control we have been thrust into a 'darkness' (death) because of the abuse we have suffered in our past (or for some are currently [...]

Just Show Up – When God SHOWS UP

By |2017-04-10T09:47:44-07:00April 10th, 2017|Blog|
