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.

Just Call
Hope for Today
Today's promise from Psalm 50:15 reminds us to call on God when hit hard times, find ourselves in trouble, or facing one of life's storms. In every rescue story on the Hope Shack site, God was already there when the author called on Him for help. Read on...

Melanie's Story - Why She Writes
“The thing about sharing our stories is that it’s not about us, it’s not about being known ourselves. It’s about normalizing pain and struggles; it’s about being willing to turn on the light so that someone else can see that they are not alone.”
Yes. Read on...

I stopped going to counseling and didn’t want to talk about it with my sister when she would ask “Hanna, when will we see mommy and daddy again?”because I had tears and no answers.”

How does someone go from drugs and alcohol to sobriety overnight? How can someone go from depression and panic to hope and peace? The love of Jesus. Simple as that.

Never Alone
“He (God) had been trying for years to bring me to him, but I had never listened. Finally, I was at a point where I didn’t have any more of my own ideas.”

Been there? Me, too. Be encouraged. There's Hope for Today. You are never alone. Read on...

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.

First G+ Post:   July 12, 2011.  http://goo.gl/zURAvJ
