My heart was moved to write about hope this past week when I was faced over and over with the difficult circumstances of family and friends dealing with tough stuff. We have a choice in how we approach these bumps and boulders in the road of life. We can let them consume us and take us down or we can allow them to transform us for the better.

Everyday Miracles: Limiting Distractions to Receive

Setting yourself up to notice the miracles

3/9/2014, By Genevieve Schmitt, Editor
It’s been almost a month since I wrote my last column; I had wanted to write this one sooner, but I kept getting distracted. Ahhh…distractions. The title of this column. It seems the time I devote to spiritual matters and the “care and tending of my soul” (I heard that once and loved it) is often low on the totem pole of my daily priorities.

Everyday Miracles: Learning to Let Go

The truth that comes when you get out of the driver's seat

2/11/2014, By Genevieve Schmitt, Editor

A must-have for riding in Big Sky Country

7/29/2013, By Genevieve Schmitt, Editor
I’m proud to call the state of Montana my home. I moved here not only for the beautiful scenery in every direction, but also for the incredible and uncrowded riding roads. In my opinion, there are few roads in Montana that don’t offer picture-perfect views.
