We hope to nurture the mind, body and spirit of individuals as they watch these mini retreats which are designed to be viewed as you take a break while at work and or want to relax for a few minutes as you return to your home.  May the stories of these extraordinary women and men touch your heart, mind, and soul as they speak to the challenging times they experienced in their lives, just as you are experiencing now in your own.

May this mini retreat series be a gift to you with sincere prayers and appreciation for your extraordinary and holy work.
