A Mennonite Family. A daughter who needs a heart transplant. 6 months to 2 year recovery at a city hospital. 250 Km from home.

So the whole family is packing up to go.

You can’t imagine how my heart split over this one.

this army dad salutes his daughter on her graduation day…what a story

Maybe in this new month, we all just need the gift of Joy… a bit of Hope? To stand together — FOR each other — knowing that an act of kindness, giving it forward, can be more powerful than any sword in starting movements that move us all toward Love.

 Want the gift of light breaking into all the broken places, into all the places that feel kinda abandoned? 

These pages are for you. It’s possible — abundant joy is always possible, especially for you.

Break free with the tender beauty of The Broken Way & Be The Gift 

And if you grab a copy of Be The Gift?  We will immediately email you a link to a FREE gift of THE WHOLE 12 MONTH *Intentional* Acts of Givenness #BeTheGIFT Calendar to download and print!  Just let us know that you ordered Be The Gift  over here.

on repeat this week: God’s not done with you yet

[ Print’s FREE here: ]

..hey, it’s all okay. Today — Just Be. All. Here.

Don’t be a Mental Runner– don’t run ahead to the future with worry, don’t run back to the past with regrets.

Be a Mental Receiver — bravely step slow & steady into each present moment with hands open wide to simply receive the present of now.

It is safe to trust — He is safe to trust. God’s very name YHVH (יהוה) means “Presence” — I AM.

The gift is always found in just being present.

[excerpted from our little Facebook family … come join us each day?]

Dare to fully live!

That’s all for this weekend, friends.

Go slow. Be God-struck. Grant grace. Live Truth.

Give Thanks. Love well. Re – joy, re- joy, ‘re- joys’ again

Share Whatever Is Good.
