The world rushes about in a torrent of hectic pace and exhausting expectations, but what if we just took a moment to rest, to revive, and to dwell on those things that uplift us and inspire us toward nobleness?  What if we could truly thrive?  Give Grace, live in Civility, spread Beauty, persevere with Gentility, pursue Excellence.  These are our Aspirations.  It is a culture-shift, a change in the way we could be viewing the world and acting toward one another.

Beautiful short films, encouraging videos, and messages from our owner and founder, Mary Alice Higbie.
