We'll get right to the point: life is hard!  And frankly, it may not get a whole lot easier.  But here at LiveWell!Ministries, we believe hard is not bad, hard is just, well, hard.  And in the middle of the hard, we have the audacity to invite you to live. Really. Truly. Live. Yes, right here and right now. Smack dab in the middle of wherever you are. We invite you to open and not close.  To lean in and not away.  And we're here to walk it out with you because the other thing we believe in is community.

LiveWell!Ministries is here to connect you with the personal relationships, practical tools and proper mindsets to equip you to live - not just a little bit, but full out well - right here and right now.

So join us as we walk this journey together. We'd be so honored to have you link arms with us.

"Heartbreak is such a constant that every ancient wisdom tradition seeks to answer three questions: How can we prepare for heartbreak? How should we hold it when it comes, as it always will? Where will we let it take us — toward more death or new life?

Left untended, our hearts can become so brittle that under stress they break apart into a million shards, and are sometimes thrown like fragment grenades at the ostensible source of their pain. Violence is what happens when we don’t know what else to do with our suffering.

But attentive students of life learn to exercise the heart day in and day out, allowing life’s “little deaths” to stretch us in ways that make our hearts suppler. Then, when larger forms of suffering strike, our hearts can break open rather than apart — giving them a greater capacity to hold life’s pain as well as its possibilities and joys.

I know many people whose own wounds — held in a broken-open heart — have made them “wounded healers.” Instead of growing bitter and brittle and passing their pain on to others, they've said, “This is where the pain stops and the love begins.” Not in spite of their suffering but because of it they’re better able to offer active forms of compassion to others who suffer."  --Parker Palmer
