INSPIRATIONAL AND MOTIVATIONAL STORIES ABOUT SPIRITUAL
We want our children to embrace their uniqueness amongst all the noise of thousands of other children growing up within their generation.
We need to recognize when we are in the autumn of our lives. This is one of the hard transitions into the second half of life, admitting we need help and that we can’t do everything we used to be able to do.
When one is going into a new phase of life… Crossing another bridge – maybe the slightly fearful bridge to old age and all it entails- then it could be time to take stock of where you stand in relation to your spirit, mind and body!

We are like the sunflower seed, in the right conditions, we look at the Son and follow Him, our hearts will grow and in due course we will bear much fruit.
The signs of transition are all about us. Do we recognize them? Do we desire, plan, expect and prepare for them?
Art has that effect on me, something you can’t put into words, something that speaks directly to the soul.
