TEAMOTIONS  "After my twin daughters Aubrey and Ellie passed away just a few weeks after they were born in 2008, I found solace in tea. I could rarely be seen without a cup of warm, comforting tea in my hand. One day my sister Crystal was visiting me and said, "I wish there was something we could put in your tea to make you feel better." Her heartfelt desire to help comfort me sparked a truly remarkable idea. We were both inspired and put our heads and hearts together to create the first and only line of teas for emotional well-being."  Rachel Crawford

Read "Walk with The Shepherd"
 A WALK WITH THE SHEPHERD by Linda Stirling  
"For me, connecting with God through the daily habit of reading His wise counsel developed within me the seeds of hope, the buds of courage, and a light that allowed joy to once again enter my life. The Bible stories of the Old Testament and the life of Jesus in the New Testament encouraged me to become a new person, not by my own resolve, but through the strength that comes in the promises He has penned for us to stand upon."
