See that first floor window over my shoulder? i was right on the other side of it, kneeling on the floor of my little apartment when god broke the suicidal depression off of me. it happened seven years ago this month, and last weekend was my first time back since i moved out that summer.
when i pulled up, the gravity of what god did all those years ago hit me, and i thought back to when i moved into my apartment in 2012. i had already lived under the weight of suicidal depression for 8 years, was in a toxic relationship, and didn’t know god. but here i am now—thankful to be alive, married to the best man, and confident in who he was, is, and will be💛he really is the god of miracles
first two photos by @laurensteelephotography and last photo from the day i moved out of the very spot where i was set free✨

Do not be another flower picked for your beauty and left to die.
be wild, hard to find, and impossible to forget.
* do you often to look to others for advice or help with a decision? do you second guess yourself at various points in your life from small things like what to wear to life-changing decisions like - where should i live next? * do you constantly seek the approval of others? *do you constantly say “i can’t”, “i shouldn’t”, “i don’t deserve”?
*do you blame shame or justify your actions?
i want to hear your stories! do you often feel powerless? we have often all been there. if we share our story we can often empower others!

The philosopher hericlitus said ‘no man ever steps in the same river twice.’ i think it could be said that no man ever sees the same lake twice. seeing the ever changing conditions in winter at lake macdonald for me is like seeing it for first time every time.
in january, eight teachers from around the flathead valley participated in an ongoing workshop in glacier national park.
the new workshop, called flathead watershed through the seasons, is made possible by your generous donations and through a special collaboration with organizations & agencies around the flathead valley!
planned and organized by a steering committee made of flathead community of resource educators (core), the workshop represents individuals from glacier, flathead national forest, the glacier institute, flbs - flathead lake biological station, the university of montana, montana fish, wildlife & parks, lone pine state park, northwest montana educational cooperative, a forest for every classroom, and the whitefish center for sustainability and entrepreneurship.
during the recent winter workshop, the teachers learned how to take snow samples and dig snow pits, giving them knowledge and tools they can incorporate in their own classrooms.
dive into our latest blog post to read more about this important work your support is making possible!
