Testimonials

quotes.png
I felt so strongly that I needed to be outdoors and not alone. I felt God's presence immediately. Finding all the signs of life and the coming spring in the frozen setting gave me hope. Your walks were God's gift to me at the start of a difficult journey. I will always be grateful.
