Message from John: 
"Life is hard, and at times can cause us to feel like giving up. Suffering can and does occur as a result of life circumstances, others' decisions, and our own, and I greatly desire to come alongside those who are suffering to support, encourage, and identify patterns that are keeping them stuck. I am convinced that there is always hope no matter the difficulty, and a way to move forward. It is my hope to help others find the strength and faith to persevere and find their identity in the midst of a difficult world."
