Showing Up Through the Hard Stuff

Showing Up Through the Hard Stuff

I'm worried about the pandemic...but not the one you think

I'm worried about the pandemic...but not the one you think

My nine year old broke down the other night. Hearing about the new lockdown coming this week in our province, his sadness overtook him and he sobbed into his daddy’s arms.

Are You Done Being a Victim?

No one was ever supposed to go through horrible things but we live in a broken world with broken people and sadly, terrible things happen every day.
