Moving Day

This week, we have been moving into our new Thistle Farms home in Nashville at 5122 Charlotte Ave. It is a gift and a product of countless hours of dreaming, prayer and hard work from a growing community that continues to witness to the truth that love is the most powerful force for change we know. We are making this move with 29 women who are pioneers and continue to grow on their journey to recovery. There is a mountain of work still to do, but every step we will take in gratitude. Thank you, all, come by and see us make some thistle paper, and sit in the circle. Sometimes I can't believe how far we have come, sometimes I can't believe how far we still have to travel, but I always believe we are moving in the right direction.

  1. Congratulations! It was such a privilege to visit your new "home" a few short weeks ago...and it moves me now to see these photographs. God is so good! I can't wait to see Him continue to bless all of you. Keep up the good work!
