The SACRED in Simple

Not everyone lives loud, not everyone lives large, not everyone lives long.   For some, it’s not about how bright the light shines on them, it’s about casting their own light on others.  It’s about simplicity, about living an authentic life, where all those you encounter are left with an indelible mark; the mark of […]
