We got vulnerable together, laughed and learned, swore and cried, joked and gasped, and I never wanted to miss a minute of it. I did not want it to end. So much more than I hoped for. And yes, I did learn a bit about writing, too (*wink).

We can’t choose many events in our lives that change us. Choosing this course changed me in profound ways I didn’t expect. "Writer" became a piece of who I am. "Hero" sunk deep into the sinews of my being. I have so much gratitude for this experience. Corey & Genevieve are heroic in their craft and ability to pour into others. ❤️❤️
