Come As You Are!

"Come as you are" applies to your spirit. Whether you are living on the mountaintop or living in the valley...come as you are.

Whether your heart feels full and strong or your heart feels weak and weary...come as you are.

Whether you feel like your best self or you feel like a shadow of yourself...come as you are. We are the vet moms. We bear one another's burdens. And we lift each other up. Come learn, love, and laugh with us!

Dr. Temple Grandin

Temple Grandin is a professor of animal science at Colorado State University and pioneer in improving the handling and welfare of farm animals. Temple's achievements are remarkable because she was an autistic child. At age two she had no speech and all the signs of severe autism. Many hours of speech therapy and intensive teaching enabled Temple to learn speech. Mentoring by her high school science teacher and her aunt on her ranch in Arizona motivated Temple to study and pursue a career as a scientist and livestock equipment designer. Her book, Animals in Translation was a New York Times best seller. She also has a popular TED Talk. In 2010, she was honored in Time Magazine's "The 100 Most Influential People in the World."
