Gratitude for all on our Trail

Thank you for taking this journey with us for Advent in 2019.  We hope you were inspired to take time out of your busy schedule and to reflect on the importance of Advent.  So many of the stories shared with us expressed gratitude, even as the world around them brought unwelcome change, struggles, and courageous journeys of discovery.  I wanted to share this quote with you today:

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough.  And more.  It turns denial into acceptance.  Chaos to order.  Confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast.  A house into a home.  A stranger into a friend.  Gratitude makes sense of our past.  Brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.”    Melody Beattie

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
