A Gift Received

In 2015, I wrote the first article for the Embrace Newsletter, which is presented on A Course of Love’s website: https://acourseoflove.org/category/embrace-acol-blog/  (I hope that if you haven’t discovered this treasure, you now will.)

Expressions with Ben Andriessen: Being the Bridge

I am so pleased to welcome Ben Andriessen to the Expressions page. Ben first contacted me nearly four years ago.
