This ministry blossomed from the ashes of a shattered marriage, where pain and heartbreak seemed to be all-consuming. In my darkest moments, when it felt like all hope had been snatched away, Pastor Ron Sauer and his remarkable wife Sue came alongside me with unwavering support. Their love knew no bounds as they poured their hearts into helping us salvage our relationship. However, despite their tireless efforts, my ex-wife decided that enough was enough and left me behind in the rubble of our broken union. The aftermath of the divorce sent me spiraling into a deep abyss of depression. It felt as if every ounce of joy had drained from my soul while darkness encased my being. Yet amidst this desolation, Ron and Sue offered me an unconventional lifeline – they suggested that I channel my pain towards uplifting others who were going through similar struggles.

And so the seed for was sown; an idea birthed out of compassion and empathy from two extraordinary individuals whose dedication to easing my human suffering knew no limits. Their faithfulness since we first crossed paths back in 2003 served as a beacon of hope during those tumultuous times. Driven by their unwavering belief in my ability to bring peace to others’ lives, I embarked on this mission with renewed vigor and determination. The virtual sanctuary known as became not only a platform for sharing stories but also a refuge where individuals could find comfort amidst chaos via pages of encouragement, videos, links, free Christian counseling, etc. I encourage you to do something similar to help others. In doing so, it is like pouring perfume on someone else, you will learn as you do that, you can not help but get some perfume on yourself in your helping others. ~ Bill Greguska
