“These Passageway elements take an important role in my life inside and outside Northwest Passage. Actively practicing Passageway Exercise has helped me maintain positive mental health. I enjoy spending time keeping my body active at a local weight room, hiking state park trails, and swimming at various lakes in the area. Passageway Service has been a helpful tool for me to create and build relationships with others. Building these relationships has increased my knowledge of what the world has to offer as opportunities continually arise. Passageway Recreation is important to me because it defines what I enjoy and hold passions for. Various recreational activities I participate in include metal detecting, finding new music to listen to, and rock collecting.”

Nature is my pathway to peace of mind. It allows me to rejuvenate, relax, and gain a sense of overall well-being. Exercise is the foundation of my lifestyle. It is the catalyst I use to start my day. It revitalizes me, gives me mental clarity, and enhances my mood. Spirituality is the map I use to navigate life. It guides my decisions and gives me a sense of purpose.”

“Hope is the belief that nothing is impossible. No matter how bad a situation gets, if a person doesn’t lose hope, they will make it through.”

“I feel being outside and allowing the kids to feel a sense of exploration really helps their minds from feeling trapped and controlled. Fishing is by far my favorite activity to participate in. But not just any fishing, ice fishing. There is just something about watching a tip-up flag go up and running towards the hole. The mystery of what is on the end of the line keeps me entertained all winter.”

PROFILE

“Hope to me is the expectation or desire of wanting something to happen or be. For families and children, it is envisioning where they would like their relationship to be now and in the future. I enjoy getting to work with the kids, and their families, on their path towards hope and healing.”

I love to teach the boys fishing techniques and see them succeed and get excited about fishing and the outdoors.”

    

PROFILE

“I try to help the boys look into the future to see that there is more to life than the immediate problems. I try to have them imagine in a few years that they will have a job, a family and have lots of new experiences in life.”
