Greetings Friends,

As the new year approaches, many quite often dread the post-holiday sadness and sugar withdrawal that requires a few more hours in the gym. Others, however, are elated to approach a time of new possibility, goals and themes. Each new year brings excitement of the unknown.

Our team is excited for 2016 and the plans in store.

Sometimes, the joy and beauty of a new year cannot be put to words. Sometimes, we need a powerful, visual depiction.

Have you heard of As We Are?

Merry Christmas!
 
Today we want to talk about this holiday season and how best to include our friends with disabilities. This holiday season, ask yourself, “How can I intentionally include my friends? How can I bring them into the narrative of this season—hope, love, and peace? How can I be kind, reflecting the love of God, and remember His gift to the world?”
