On a Time for Grit

Mike Knutz ·
During these uncertain times when programming has ceased as we know it, as well as most other aspects of our life being upended, it can be discouraging or even overwhelming.

Practicing Reflection

Jessica B. ·
If your year started like mine, it left you reeling from a packed schedule and more on your plate than you thought you had.

Karl Bradley ·

He responded...Because, how was I supposed to know he would become Leonard Bernstein? He's right, we don't know how our kids lives will go. We protect, guide & nurture and then wait & watch. It's not quite the same with ourselves. We are intimately involved with our own decisions & actions.
