Friends I Admire

Take a look at the women I'm blessed to call my friends. Oh, I know they are a pretty lot! Maybe they *just* look like *moms*. (We go by Mama or Momma, y'all.) There's no doubt they are beautiful, gentle, loving and nurturing.

There's another side of these women, though. They've been through hell and high water to find a place of wellness for their children, husbands, themselves, and now, others. They've searched, and prayed, and searched and prayed some more... until they found solutions for challenges that had "no other options". They are some of the fiercest wellness warriors I know. We are here as proof that there is healing to be found.

I'm so thankful to have them in my life. They inspire and encourage me every day, and I'm so excited for you to know them.
