Check out the new HTH newsletter!

"Story is the wisdom that can guide you to your true destiny--both temporal and spiritual. All of the great myths, legends, and fairy tales have that power. If you understand their secrets, they can guide you to a full realization of your self. Great stories are designed to guide us to our full potential and are as necessary to our well-being as fresh air."
-James Bonnet, author Stealing Fire From the Gods.

This year we are excited to share this special peek into the culture, people and projects that form the stories of HTH. Coming to you in many forms, we begin with pictures below and look forward to sharing often. Enjoy! – Kaleb
