Isn’t the Inland Northwest great? The hills, the rivers, the hikes, the sunsets, the pines – there’s beauty everywhere you look. Especially in the faces of the people. And that’s what this website is all about – the people of the Inland Northwest. 

Hello! We are the marketing team of the Union Gospel Mission: Barbara, Jessica, Danielle, James and Merrily. Writers, photographers, designers and one videographer…storytellers all. 


We started this site because we recognized that it is our stories that bind us together. We hope as you peruse the pictures and the quotes, you will see the beauty that we see – the image of our Creator reflected in our neighbors. 

“If we are to love our neighbors, before doing anything else we must see our neighbors. With our imagination as well as our eyes, that is to say like artists, we must see not just their faces but the life behind and within their faces.” – Frederick Buechner
