Teaming Up to Help Others Thrive
This site’s for you
if you’re living with an invisible disability - A Storm Dweller
You’re likely dwelling in storms. Maybe they come and go with sun-breaks in-between, but they're always around.
You'll find lessons learned from 40 years of storms and links to other sites and resources to help in this life.
If you’re not living with an invisible disability - A Storm Observer
You’re living outside these particular storms, but you can observe and learn what our lives are like.
You may already know some dwellers and just not realize the storms they experience. After all, invisible means not easily seen.
My hope is you’ll become involved in someone else’s storms.
As simple as a “Hi” that acknowledges their existence or as complex as committing to help on an ongoing basis.

Jesus offered ultimate love to all people through His death on the cross.
Personally, we know that we are loved and accepted.
Relationally, this love can aid us in seeing when people are struggling in life and in enabling us to come alongside them with help and encouragement.
Any condition not immediately noticeable that limits one’s life activities.
Instrument to reach out to a real, live person; in this case, through the internet.
THE HURTING (Storm Dwellers)
My term for any person experiencing ongoing situations beyond his/her control that make life more difficult.
THE CARING (Storm Observers)
My term for the person who helps a hurting person. As simple as encouraging words; as intense as caregiving; anything in-between.
