Start Here

Even when I walk through the darkest valley, I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me. 

If you are going through a time of suffering it's important to recognize that grief doesn't need to be your new home. In Psalm 23, King David suggests that experiencing hardships is like walking through a dark valley.

The beauty of his imagery is twofold. First, it acknowledges that we are in an unpleasant place; it's difficult to see and we are hemmed in on both sides. Second, David alludes to the idea that this is not where we must stay. The psalmist is walking through this space, he is on his way out of the valley.

If you are in a dark valley right now, and want to move forward to a better place, this website is designed for you.  The approach I offer here is paradoxical. It calls the traveler to be patient and to trust God. We must accept that many things are out of our control. And yet, my approach also calls us to take action. We must commit ourselves to engage in practices that will help us move out of the valley of darkness. 

This website is a work in progress. As I complete the content for a particular subsection below, that subsection will be underlined and will link to a specific webpage or Google document with additional information. You can follow a particular link to learn more about that component of the transformation process, or you can use the navigation bar at the top of this page to explore a topic that is of interest to you. Subsections that are not yet underlined are still in development and will be available in a future update. 

Six Steps To Travel from Tragedy to Transformation

"Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success." -- Pablo Picasso
