Life is hard some times!

People often long for safe places where they can express their grief, confusion or even anger. Whether you are deconstructing, questioning, or doubting, you are welcome and valued here. When many of us venture out to find healing or relief or adventure, it can often feel like walking out into the Desert.

Welcome to our Sanctuary in the Desert. You are welcome to share your thoughts and what you are producing while you are processing. We will endeavor to lean toward the contemplative and shy away from politics.

Karl and Laura Forehand

  • We believe that stories are sacred. By sharing our stories, we hope they will inspire you to positive change in your life or just encourage you to examine your life more deeply.

  • We share our lives through our podcasts, blogs and books. These are all ways to share our story and encourage others. It is possible that parts of our story will resonate with yours and inspire you to find your way home.

  • Karl has years of training in spiritual leadership coaching, spiritual direction and pastoral counseling. He is able to lead coaching sessions, holy listening groups, focusing sessions and shadow work.

We believe that you have a deep and abiding sense of what you need, and we pray that you will find it here.
