Meet Brielle, Miracle Baby

I worked with Brielle’s parents, Katie & Montana, not long ago and think they are are one of the cutest couples ever.

Written January 2019 “At 23 weeks pregnant, Montana and I found out that our sweet baby girl, the one we’ve been dreaming of and praying for for so long, has an extremely complex cardiac abnormality.

Announcing the Theme for Spring Retreat

We are thrilled to announce the theme for the Spring Crafter’s Retreat: Shine Bright! Esther and I picked the theme for this retreat last fall. It spoke to both of us immediately and we knew we had to run with it. Sometimes the world can seem like a dark place, but we all have a light that shines and we can choose to be a light-bringer to those dark places. Despite the busyness of our lives, we still manage to make time for our families and friends. We take a meal to a sick neighbor, help our children with their homework, and go to lunch with a friend. We smile at a stranger in the grocery store and encourage a despondent
