February 2023 – Glory House

Jim Groth, a musician from the ‘Be the Light in the Darkness’ fundraising event last December, came to the Glory House in early February to play for the guests.

Jim played familiar country, folk, and rock songs from the 1960s and ’70s. He ended with a favorite, “Here Comes the Sun“.

The guests of the Glory House were ecstatic and grateful to have a guest musician play for them on Sunday afternoon. Jim also expressed joy in playing for others right where they are on their journey and looks forward to playing for them again.

Deb Yoder introduced the healing sounds of Tibetan singing bowls to the guests at the Glory House. She will be offering these relaxing sounds once a month. The singing bowl is a metal bowl, struck by a mallet, used to invoke meditation or relaxation through the resounding vibrations and pleasant sounds it emanates when played.

  • Meaningful Mandala
  • The Path into a Sunset Watercolor
  • Book Binding
  • Clay Pinch Pot Planters
