The Power of Connecting combined with the Power of Making
+Jenn Zeyen​​ walks us through the how's and why's of connecting with a group of people doing the same thing you are.   I've got some thoughts to add, and it's the driver behind the direction +Yarn Mountain​​ is taking.   

"Knit on with confidence and hope through all crisis." - Elizabeth Zimmerman (https://goo.gl/xBIEpJ)

Knitting keeps our hands busy and our minds occupied.  It creates instant connections.   Anytime I knit anywhere in public, someone always stops to chat, to tell their knitting story, or best yet...they sit down and join me.   Teaching someone to knit is equipping them with a way to cope and an instant support network.    That's #KnittingtheWorldTogether  .   Enjoy!

#KnitwithMe   #Knitting  +Hope Shack​​ 
There are many reasons you should join a sit-n-stitch group but the best reason is: you will find a friend there. And you need those.

“I began hanging out with the wrong crowd, making the wrong decisions, & living a life that I honestly had no clue where it was going. I stopped reading my bible, I stopped going to church, I even stopped praying. But let me tell you one thing, God never stopped showing me that he was still there holding my hand.” – excerpt from Savannah’s Story

Today's promise from Isaiah 61:7 reminds us that God loves us anyway, in spite of our mistakes and failures. We can replace our shame with everlasting joy. Regardless of our circumstances, there is hope for today. Read on...

"I'm a guy who loves photography and adventure! In fact I've been taking and developing my photos for over 25 years! Recently I've decided to travel around America in my truck and capture its beauty with my camera. I'd love it if you would follow along on my journey! Even better would be to meet you along the way and go shooting together!"

“Let’s take a step with the people we’re close to. Let’s get close enough to share a yoke, to walk in each others’ shoes for a while.”

"I eventually ended up robbed on the streets of Las Vegas with no family, no friends, and nothing but the clothes on my back and my empty heart. …" - Elizabeth's Story
I smile as I write this intro. This is another rescue story. I am so grateful for a Saviour that isn’t afraid to climb down into the darkest pits of despair to rescue us and walk us out. Elizabeth’s Story will touch your heart. God chooses us. I hope you find this tale as rich with His love for each of us as I did.

Knitting the World Together
Introduction

Hiking:   I hike mostly for fun.  I love to be outside, especially "up north" in the forest..

Knitting:  Find me in The Knitting Lodge community here on Google+.  I operate  Yarn Mountain, an online community site specializing in helping the knitters of the world connect with each other, and grow their talents.  WATCH MY GOOGLE+ STORY  and see how this knitting community stuff all started.

My Hope:   Enabling people to connect with each other, and to find hope for a better tomorrow is where I'll invest my free time.  In this world of over 7 Billion people, and with the technology available to us today, nobody should ever have to feel alone.   I'm proud to share in the Hope Shack project and support organizations that help encourage and bring hope to people around the globe.
