  • by

Mark your calendars for Sunday, September 14, 2014 for the 2nd JSRF Experience Hope 5K Run/Walk at the Lakewood Forest Preserve. 

We are already in search of individuals or businesses that would like to sponsor the JSRF Experience Hope 5K Run/Walk or individuals that would like to help us specifically with recruitment and advertising. 

If you or someone you know is interested, please contact us at or 847-438-8058.

One of the affirmations read at our 3rd Wine & Unwind Yoga, Wine & Chocolate night:

I live from integrity.

I love sincerely and from my heart.

I know who I am and I make choices based on what I know to be right for me.

I am strong and I am able to handle any situation.

I stand for justice, truth and love.

I am open to the spirit of life, which carries me beyond my perceived limits to a

higher, more creative place.

I am thankful for all the opportunities for growth and development that have come my way.

I am grateful for the challenges that have taught me who I truly am.

Our annual Yoga fundraiser keeps getting better every year. We believe this was our best one yet! Thank you to all the “yogis” who attended. As our yoga teacher Laurie, would say, “You are all beautiful spirits”.  This was another sold-out event for JSRF! 

A big thanks to Laurie Kane, Kate O’Donnell and Sayra Stom for doing such an amazing job! We also want to thank all who donated baked goods and helped with set-up, serving, and clean-up. Another special thank you goes to Fr. David Ryan for allowing us to use the space at the St. Francis de Sales Ministry Center. 


Ciri, Scott & Sayra Stom
