Grinning Like Jack-o’-Lanterns!

As one Calvary staff member recently observed, the LEAP education area is a place full of laughter and joy! Through creative activities like painting, drawing and writing poetry, women find unique ways to express their stories. These artistic opportunities also give women a chance to unwind and relax. We think these photos of women decorating pumpkins for an upcoming event exemplify the spirit of Calvary. Even when pumpkins serve as the canvas, it is always exciting to see what women create. Although women at Calvary may be facing difficult personal challenges, they are still able to look through them and smile.
