Personal Story Telling

This project saved the words of encouragement to my mom when she was going through chemotherapy treatments. After her death the notes were taped all over the hosue walls and doors and mirrors. I collected them all again and they became the journey of grief as I once again used the stepping-stones for a heart of recovery.-Connie
