Crisis Intervention

Crisis Line Volunteer

I was born and raised on the family farm in Powell, Wyoming. I graduated college with an Agribusiness degree and now work with my family raising crops and cattle. Seven years ago, I came across an ad in the local newspaper for Crisis Intervention Services needing volunteers. I called the number listed, went through the training, and now have been volunteering since then. I started out by being on call and assisting with supervised visits between kids and parents, now I am just on call and take calls through the domestic violence and sexual assult hotline. -Abby

Make Summer Fun Again!

In our childhood, we learn that summer is a time for play and fun.  We looked forward to summer vacation. It was a time to take a break from our studies and from learning.  It was a time of joy.

Inspiration from nature: Is it for the birds or not?

For the past two weeks, I have been watching a bird in my back yard while I drink my morning coffee.  At first, I thought it was just one of the pesky birds waiting for me to go inside so it could enjoy the cat food in the automatic feeder set out for the feral kitties who live in our back yard.  Over a couple of days, I noticed a pattern to this bird’s activities that didn’t have anything to do with cat food.  This bird was building a nest in the Ficus tree.
