Something Beautiful

"There is something cleansing about learning to sew and work with my hands. Especially after my hands have done so many things I wish I could undo." 

This is one of the many reasons we love and believe in what we are working toward with G.E.A.R. While we know that none of our pasts can be undone, we know we can take full responsibility for our future...and what we make of our past. We hope that what we are working on together with our friends at the mission will be a cleansing experience for all of us.  That we will become more of our true selves as we engage in relationships with each other...people who would in any other setting pass each other without saying a word.  Fortunately, our lives have collided and we now have an opportunity to learn and grow from one another.  As we walk this journey with these friends we hope to see them arrive at a place where they know they are fully capable of creating something beautiful with their hands...and with their life.
