I am strong, smart and bold: MARIE WATSON

They listened and encouraged me to be myself, despite the differences, and I learned that I AM strong, smart and bold!"
"The activities we engaged in ranged from team building exercises, planting gardens, cooking, painting murals, playing games, working with the Santa Fe Mountain>

God Made You
By Billy Graham
Our fellowship is with the Father, and with
His Son Jesus Christ.—1 John 1:3
God made you! You were fashioned in His own image! You were made in the image and likeness of the Creator. God had a purpose in making you. His primary purpose is that you would have fellowship with Him. If man does not have fellowship with God, he is lost, confused, and bewildered. Since he does not find his place, he has a sense of not fitting. ...

Not only was it our biggest turnout ever, but the same day hundreds came together to show their support for public lands, Representative Jason Chaffetz of Utah pulled HR 621.
