Weekly Genesis Video Lessons:

Due to the stay-at-home restrictions to fight the spread of the Coronavirus, I will be posting a weekly teaching from the Genesis Process.  Feel free to pass this along to whomever you think would benefit.  I pray they will encourage you and many others to maintain recovery and hope through this time.

Peace and Love – Dean
