+  Intro and News

+  Teresa's Two Cents

  • Description: Teresa reminds us of some local events coming up in our state of Michigan. She also comments on the new disgusting Bro-Choice movement.

+  Life After Death: Practical Help for the Widowed

  • Description: Elizabeth Bookser Barkley lost her husband, Scott, in 1999. With three daughters to raise alone, she found that moving forward was made easier through the strength of friends and by staying in touch with her spiritual core. "Life After Death" is for those who have passed through that initial period of grief, and have begun to settle into a new life of living as a widow or widower. It is a book filled with the hope that comes from patience and understanding, from a willingness to believe that our lives continue to be enriched by not only the relationship we had with our spouse, but by our relationships with family, friends, and God.
