They are interested in receiving in-depth training in the subject and are dedicated to helping others learn their art.

    “It’s not whether you get knocked down; it’s whether you get back up.”

  • In any building, the foundation is of utmost importance, because destructive things will begin to happen, causing worry, expense, and possibly even collapse.

    Our spiritual lives are no different.  The foundational beliefs we build upon are crucial. Winds and storms will come, to be sure!  Whether or not we will weather what life throws at us will depend upon what has gone into our spiritual foundation.
