Much more focused and an upbeat way of presenting the information and providing guidance and help to those who are looking for answers. Thanks again and keep up the good work.”

GET CREATIVE WITH KERRY MOLINA

Experience the Joy of the Journey BY KERRY MOLINA

Ladies, when was the last time you put aside your to-do list? Let go of all expectation? Gave yourself the gift of pause and put yourself first?

As women, we work and handle, juggle and manage…and we rock at it, don’t we? I believe it’s time to add in some true self-care and some recognition of hidden treasures. You see, I believe that all of us have gifts inside. But we let them get buried. We tend to let it happen while we’re busy taking care of everyone else. Yes, of course we enjoy our jobs and our families. But my goal is to give women an opportunity to slow down enough to recognize inspiration, connect with their inner creative energy and reconnect with the notion of enjoying the journey we are on. If you’re ready to relax, restore, and renew, why not grab a friend and spend a week at creativity camp? The Yellow Brick Road Studio’s “Joy of the Journey” creativity camp started in

2017 with four participants. As word spread, that number doubled. Women began recognizing the need to refresh and tune into their creativity. As a result, this coming summer there will be two camps, the week of July 15-19 and the week of August 5-9. Campers enjoy a supportive and fun small-group atmosphere. They experience art lessons where new techniques are explored and creativity is encouraged in a safe space. They paint, sketch, collage and more. They allow themselves to embrace new creative adventures. And no previous art talent is required. Journaling is another large component. Each day, campers are presented with a theme to write about. Self-discovery takes place as participants feel inspired to think and write about their past experiences, current ideas and thoughts about the future. Poetry is delved into as well. Because nature is so very inspirational, campers enjoy walks through either Conway Robinson State Park or Stone Bridge Battlefield and, weather permitting, even picnic on the

premises. During last year’s camp, participants picnicked at a local winery. New friends, nature, and wine. What’s not to like? Along the way, campers are pampered and surprised by little gifts, notes and tokens. Guest presenters are another unique aspect of the Joy of the Journey camp and have included poets, Myers-Briggs experts and massage therapists. In the past, campers have also gone on field trips to restaurants and spas. Every week is different and the ladies are kept guessing. One of last year’s participants wrote: “The director of the Joy of the Journey camp did a fabulous job of making us feel special and included. Everyday brought new gifts, new adventures and new techniques that allowed us to grow both personally and creatively. Perfect for any woman interested in exploring (or expanding) her creative side while making delightful, new friends. I highly recommend this experience!” Joy of the Journey is the perfect opportunity for

Gleanings from the Bible

Ruth 2:2

The New Jerusalem The book of Revelation, according to John’s own introduction, is a book composed of signs (Rev. 1:1). Due to the profundity of the great matters in Revelation, it is difficult for man to speak of them exhaustively in plain words. Thus, these matters are symbolized and depicted by signs, such as the lampstands, signifying the churches (ch. 1), the Lion, signifying the overcoming Christ, and the Lamb signifying the redeeming Christ (ch. 5), just to name a few. The final sign, which is also the greatest, is the New Jerusalem, and it speaks volumes regarding God’s eternal purpose. Revelation 21:2 says, “I saw the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” This verse reveals that the New Jerusalem is not a physical, lifeless city but rather a corporate living person as the bride of Christ. The New Jerusalem signifies the composition of the totality of God’s redeemed people throughout the generations, who have been prepared though regeneration, transformation, and glorification. This verse also clearly shows that once all of God’s redeemed have been raptured to the heavens, they will constitute the New Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from God. Interestingly, according to this verse, our dwelling place for eternity will not be heaven but the New Jerusalem on the new earth. Let us consider several key verses to perceive more of the significance of this greatest sign. Verse 18 says, “The building work of its wall was jasper; and the city was pure gold, like clear glass.” In Biblical typology gold signifies the divine nature of God. The city’s being of pure gold signifies that the New Jerusalem is altogether of God’s divine nature and takes His nature as its element. Like clear glass indicates that the whole city is transparent and is not in the least opaque. The city’s wall was jasper, which is a transformed precious stone (1 Cor. 3:12). In Revelation 4:3 God’s appearance is like jasper. Thus, the jasper wall of the New Jerusalem signifies that the whole city, as the corporate expression of God in eternity, bears the appearance of God. Revelation 21:19 says, “The foundations of the wall of the city were adorned with every precious stone: the first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, chalcedony; the fourth, emerald.” The New Jerusalem is a city of foundations (Heb. 11:10). Its twelve foundations have inscribed on them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb (21:14), each of whom is signified by a precious stone. Peter, the first of the twelve apostles, was originally named Simon. When Simon was brought to the Lord, the Lord changed his name to Peter, meaning “stone” (John 1:42). Later, the Lord called him by that name when He spoke concerning the building of His church (Matt. 16:18). Precious stones are not created but produced by the transforming of created things. All the apostles were created as clay, but they were regenerated and transformed into precious stones for God’s eternal building. Every believer needs to be thus regenerated and transformed that he may be a part of the New Jerusalem. Furthermore, the twelve layers of the foundation have the appearance of a rainbow, signifying that the city is built upon and secured by God’s faithfulness in keeping His covenant (Gen. 9:8-17) and that the foundation of the city is trustworthy and reliable.

water that came out of the riven rock (Exo. 17:6; Num. 20:11) and symbolized by the water that flowed out of the pierced side of the Lord Jesus (John 19:34). The water of life becomes a river, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb to supply and saturate the entire New Jerusalem. Thus, this city is filled with the divine life that it may express God in His glory of life. There is one throne for both God and the Lamb, indicating that God and the Lamb are one—the Lamb-God, the redeeming God, God the Redeemer. In eternity the very God who sits on the throne is our redeeming God, from whose throne proceeds the river of water of life for our supply and satisfaction. This depicts how the Triune God—God, the Lamb, and the Spirit, who is symbolized by the water of life—dispenses Himself to His redeemed under His headship (implied in the authority of the throne) for eternity. The street of the holy city is pure gold (21:21), which symbolizes the divine nature. That the river of water of life proceeds “in the middle of its street” signifies that the divine life flows in the divine nature as the unique way for the daily life of God’s redeemed people. Where the divine life flows, there the divine nature is as the holy way by which God’s people walk; and where the holy way of the divine nature is, there the divine life is flowing. The divine life and the divine nature as the holy way always go together. God’s river of water of life is available along this divine way, and we enjoy the river by walking in this way of life. The one tree of life growing on the two sides of the river signifies that the tree of life is a vine that spreads and proceeds along the flow of the water of life for God’s people to receive and enjoy. The tree of life was closed to man because of his fall (Gen. 3:22-24), but it was opened to the believers through the redemption of Christ (Heb. 10:19-20). Today the enjoyment of Christ as the tree of life is the believers’ common portion (John 6:35, 57; 15:1). Christ as the tree of life is the life supply available along the flow of the Spirit as the water of life. Where the Spirit flows, there the life supply of Christ is found. This is all in and with the divine nature as our holy way, signified by the street. This is the supply of the holy city and the way the city is supplied.

Revelation 21:21 says, “The twelve gates were twelve pearls; each one of the gates was, respectively, of one pearl. And the street of the city was pure gold, like transparent glass.” Pearls are produced by oysters in the waters of death. When an oyster is wounded by a grain of sand, it secretes its life-juice around the grain of sand and makes it into a precious pearl. This depicts Christ as the living One coming into the death waters, being wounded by us, and secreting His life over us to make us into precious pearls for the building of God’s eternal expression. That the twelve gates of the holy city are twelve pearls signifies that regeneration through the death-overcoming and life-secreting Christ is the entrance into the city.

The traditional teaching in Christianity is that the New Jerusalem is a physical city with heavenly mansions. However, the New Jerusalem is actually a sign with spiritual significance as the consummation of the entire Bible. It is the tabernacle of God with men (Rev. 21:3) with the Triune God as its center, content, and constitution—God the Father (of pure gold, jasper appearance), God the Son (the tree of life), and God the Spirit (the river of water of life). It is the wife of the Lamb (v. 9) composed of both the Old Testament elect (the names of the tribes on the twelve gates—v. 12) and the New Testament believers (the names of twelve apostles on the twelve foundations—v. 14). Accordingly, the New Jerusalem is a mingling of the processed Triune God and His redeemed, regenerated, transformed, and glorified tripartite people. The consummation of the Bible reveals not merely that we go to heaven but rather that we become the New Jerusalem (3:12) and together with God come down out of heaven to the new earth as both a loving universal couple and a built-up eternal city with God’s glory in humanity shining forth in splendor radiantly! Moreover, the sign itself shows us how to enter the city through believing into the redeeming Christ (pearl gates) and how to become the city by drinking of the life-giving Spirit (the river of water of life) and eating Christ (the tree of life), that we may walk by the divine nature (the golden street) to be transformed and ultimately glorified (precious stones). Oh, may we all come forward to the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem (Heb. 12:22)!

Revelation 22:1-2 say, “He showed me a river of water of life, bright as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb in the middle of its street. And on this aside and on that side of the river was the tree of life, producing twelve fruits, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations.” The water of life is a symbol of God in Christ as the Spirit flowing Himself into His redeemed people to be their life and life supply. It is typified by the

Summer at the Library is a Hit for Teens BY HANNAH AXT, HAYMARKET GAINESVILLE COMMUNITY LIBRARY

T

hings at the Prince William Public Library System (PWPLS) are starting to heat up with the arrival of summer! This year, we’re excited to feature several new programs specifically for teens. With so many extracurricular activities, part-time jobs, and college prep, teens often don’t have much free time during the school year, so we’re hoping to provide plenty of opportunities for them this summer when they’re a little less busy. Our Summer Reading Program spans June 11 – August 11 and will include a game card with fun activities for teens to complete, such as “Read a science fiction book” and “Log into Lynda. com and find an interesting course.” We’ll have smaller prizes to give away when a teen signs up and completes five activities. They’ll get a free book and will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a Target gift card after 10 activities, and there will be a bonus grand prize drawing for those that complete all of the activities! In addition to the traditional Summer Reading Program, Haymarket Gainesville Community Library has a range of special events that focus more on the recreational side of summer. Our goal is to help teens bond with others in their community, engage them in new resources, and provide a source of fun entertainment at no cost. Our summer

calendar is filled with “crafternoons” for teens who like artistic projects, trivia, video games, and a few more unique events, such as an ice cream “crawl” and a henna workshop. Feel free to take a look at just a few of the many teen events being held at Haymarket Gainesville this summer, and make sure to check out the Prince William Public Library’s website at www.pwcgov.org/library to see the full calendar of events. TUESDAY, JUNE 25: Henna Harmony, 2:00 p.m. THURSDAY, JUNE 27: Ice Cream Crawl, 4:00 p.m. THURSDAY, JULY 11: Candy Crafternoon, 4:00 p.m. THURSDAY, JULY 18: Tie-Dye Crafternoon, 4:00 p.m. THURSDAY, JULY 25: Gaming with Edge Party Trailer, 6:00 p.m.

THURSDAY, AUGUST 1: Doctor Who Trivia, 6:00 p.m. Beyond providing literary and leisure activities for teens, summer at the Library provides an opportunity for teens to gain work experience by volunteering. With a goal of preparing teens with necessary job skills and spreading awareness of the importance of library services, volunteering during the summer is a great benefit to both teens and the Library. PWPLS is currently accepting applications for summer volunteers at all branches for teens ages twelve and up. Visit your local library branch or www.pwcgov.org/ library for more information and to pick up an application. We’re so excited for summer to be here, both for the great programs and to see the many new and returning library patrons. We hope to see you soon! ❖

T-Scores and Your Health BY SUSAN TULINO, NOVANT HEALTH UVA HEALTH SYSTEM

O

steopenia (thin bones) and osteoporosis (brittle bones) aren’t life-threatening conditions, but they do lead to increased risk of serious fractures. That’s why physicians at Novant Health UVA Health System Prince William Medical Center and Haymarket Medical Center encourage patients at heightened risk to undergo a dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) bone mineral density screening. DXA machines aren’t new technology, but they provide a lot of value to medical providers who want to evaluate their patients’ risk of bone fractures. One of these providers is Jey Maran, MD, a medical oncologist at Cancer Center at Lake Manassas, a Novant Health UVA Health System facility. As an oncologist, Dr. Maran works with patients whose cancer treatments may require medications which can weaken bones or cause loss of bone mineral density. Access to DXA screening technology at both centers allows him to measure his patients’ bone density without referring them to an outside facility. “There is a very effective breast cancer treatment, for example, that involves aromatase inhibitors. An unfortunate side effect can be loss of bone mineral density,” says Dr. Maran. “We make sure to take a baseline bone density measurement when we start patients on a treatment plan. From there, we follow up after two years to determine if there have been any changes and adjust the plan as needed.” But why is measuring bone mineral density so important?

About bone mineral density Bone mineral density is a measurement of bone thinness and risk of fracture. Physicians’ recommendations depend on age, body composition, health history and certain lifestyle factors, but there isn’t necessarily a specific age range or demographic that should be screened.

However, there are populations more prone to osteopenia or osteoporosis including: • post-menopausal women • tall, thin women • people with chronic kidney or parathyroid conditions • patients on long-term medication plans • smokers • those with a family history of either osteopenia or osteoporosis Density is reported in T-scores, which show how a patient’s bone density compares to that of an average, healthy adult. As the mean, the bone density of an average, healthy adult has a T-score of zero. The risk of bone fracture increases with every standard deviation below zero. A T-score of -1.0 or higher is considered normal, -1.0 to -2.5 indicates low bone density or osteopenia, and below -2.5 serves as a diagnosis of osteoporosis.

DXA Screenings A DXA machine uses a low-dose X-ray to determine the thickness and density of a bone through a painless and noninvasive screening which lasts between 15 and 20 minutes. A traditional X-ray machine is able to look at bones but does not offer standardization like the DXA machine does. DXAs standardize a patients’ bone health to their demographics’ averages and determine a T-score to quantify the amount of bone density lost between screenings. For the populations listed above, it is a valuable resource for measuring changes to bone density over time. However, DXA machines can also be valuable tools for determining the cause of a traumatic fracture in otherwise healthy populations. “If a patient has had a wrist fracture from a fall, physicians can use bone density assessments to determine whether osteoporosis or osteopenia could have contributed to the fracture, rather than just the trauma of the fall itself,” says Dr. Maran.

Before and During the Screening A DXA screening and preparation is simple — patients may eat and drink normally the day prior and are only asked to avoid taking any calcium supplements that may affect the results. The exam itself is done in two parts: one to assess the spine and one to assess the hips. The spine scan requires patients to lie flat on their backs with their legs elevated. The hip scan asks patients to outstretch their legs. For both parts, the detector portion of the machine slowly passes over the assessed area but does not make direct contact with the body. The radiologist then reviews the exam images and reports results back to the patient’s ordering physician.

Treatment Options for Osteopenia and Osteoporosis If a DXA screening results in a T-score within osteopenia or osteoporosis range, the good news is that these conditions alone don’t cause pain or discomfort. However, they do put patients at higher risk for fractures, which come with pain and long recoveries. For either diagnosis, Dr. Maran recommends calcium and vitamin D supplements along with incorporating weight-bearing exercises to help strengthen the bones. Osteoporosis may also require a prescription medication. For more information visit nhuvaimaging.com/. ❖

The 110-seat restaurant, which also has an additional 30 seats outdoors, now in its 20th year at this location, has undergone a major renovation. “Everything that the customer sees will be different,” said Mike Cerny, president of the regional restaurant chain. “It was time,” Cerny said of the decision to close the restaurant for a few weeks for the major facelift. “It needed to be freshened up and modernized.” The first thing the customers will notice is the new decor. “The ambiance, environment, and everything customers see is just more updated, relaxing, clean, and comfortable,” Cerny said. The new decor is primarily a rustic, reclaimed wood look. Cerny explained, “I wanted a newer look, more in keeping with Warrenton. I think of Warrenton as having a rural, rustic look, and that’s what I wanted to portray here.” All the tables, booths, and furniture are made out of reclaimed wood. The bar and beverage stations countertops are a dark, fine-grained gray granite made from a quarry just south of Culpeper. Included with the renovation are new lighting, floors, bathrooms, outdoor signage, and soon to be completed repainting of the building. It’s not

all rustic though; it’s well into the 21st century with eight brand-new televisions, primarily for sports, and a digital menu board. Customers will also notice the improved flow in the restaurant. The ordering station has been moved about eight feet over, the drinks station is conveniently located right around the corner, and then customers can choose their seats in the dining room. Foster’s fans will be glad to know that the menu will not be changing, nor will the prices. Known for its half-pound fresh charburger, jumbo chicken wings, fresh-cut Idaho potatoes, hand-scooped milkshakes, and fresh-squeezed lemonade, regulars will be glad to know that all their favorites will still be available. In addition, Foster’s serves locally brewed craft beer from its new beer tower and they still feature a white and red wine from a local winery. Cerny prides himself on the quality of their food: “Just because people look at you as a burger joint, it doesn’t mean that you can’t serve good, quality food.” Also continuing unabated is Foster’s commitment to the community. Known for supporting the High School, sports teams, and other organizations in the county, that support has extended to local businesses

for this renovation. “Every vendor that was part of this renovation is a business located in Warrenton. My architect, contractor, plumber, electrician, flooring, signage company, are all Warrenton businesses. I’m very proud to say that,” said Cerny. Included in the renovation, of course, is Foster’s party room. The separate, 50-seat private dining room that hosts anything from birthday parties to sports team celebrations to business meetings is also undergoing the same transformation. It boasts a large-screen television that can be used for the group’s purposes, whether it is to play a movie at a birthday party, a replay of a sports game for teams, or to stream a business presentation from a laptop. “This is a unique feature we have,” said Cerny. “Here, groups can have a private, separate room but still enjoy the same food and atmosphere from the restaurant.” “I feel the restaurant now has a very comfortable relaxed feel to it, so anyone can come in and feel welcomed. Whether it’s someone by themselves, a family, a couple, or a group of friends that want to sit at a table and enjoy an evening chatting in a relaxed atmosphere, we’re going to meet and exceed their expectations,” Cerny concluded. ❖

Celebrate Your Hero BY FRANNIE BARNES

FRIDAY, JUNE 14: flags go up

D

o you have a hero in your life? It could be a teacher, firefighter, veteran, or law enforcement officer you look up to, who has done great things for you or for the community. The Gainesville Haymarket Rotary Club is once again giving those in the area the opportunity to recognize, honor, and celebrate local heroes with its second annual Flags for Heroes event. Said Terri Aufmuth, president-elect of the Gainesville Haymarket Rotary Club, “This year’s event will be a heartfelt celebration of all the heroes in our lives. Whether military, law enforcement, teachers, firefighters, a family member or neighbor, we invite you to honor a hero in your life by sponsoring a flag in their honor." By sponsoring a flag for your hero, you not only honor and celebrate that individual, you support a cause doing vital and important work for our local veterans. Semper K9, a local non-profit that trains and provides service dogs free to combat veterans, is this year’s beneficiary. Said Kelvin Valdez, a married father of three who spent nearly 18 years in the Marines serving our country, “Having a service dog has allowed me to become more social and given me the ability to be in a large crowed area without feeling that heavy load of anxiety building up in me. It has also helped me a lot with my mood swings which in turn has positively increased my involvement with my family and friends.” This year’s Flags for Heroes will be held Flag Day weekend, June 14–16 in Haymarket Community Park. The flags will be erected on Friday June 14, and the

ceremony for those being honored will be held on Saturday, June 15 at 9:00 a.m. The flags will come down on June 16 and for the duration of their display will be lit overnight. Local organizations participating in the ceremony include the children's choir from Haymarket Baptist Preschool, and Boy Scout troop 1882. Jarreau Williams, a popular local performer, will sing the National Anthem. Local dignitaries will be present to recognize and honor heroes. Said Aufmuth, “Flags for Heroes would not be possible without the support and assistance from the Town of Haymarket. The mayor and town council participate, and the Haymarket Police Department monitors the flags overnight and provides support during the event.”

}

Each year, flags with new honorees are displayed. Each flag is adorned with a tag containing the honoree's name, branch or type of service, and the name of the individual honoring them. The fee to sponsor a flag is $50. For information on sponsoring a flag for the hero in your life, visit ghrotary.org before May 31, and click on Flags for Heroes.

MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS

ENDING THE MENTAL ILLNESS STIGMA BY KARYN O’BRIEN, PSY.D., CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGIST AND SENIOR DIRECTOR OF BEHAVIORAL HEALTH SERVICES, NOVANT HEALTH UVA HEALTH SYSTEM

“THE FACT THAT MENTAL HEALTH ISN’T ‘SURFACE LEVEL,’ OR SOMETHING WE CAN BE REMINDED OF JUST BY LOOKING IN THE MIRROR, DOESN’T MAKE IT ANY LESS IMPORTANT TO MAINTAIN.”

hysicals, teeth cleanings, OB/ GYN visits and mammograms, dermatologist appointments, vision checks, colonoscopies and hair cuts. When it comes to maintaining our physical health and appearance, many of us pencil in these appointments weeks, months or even a year in advance. But what about mental and emotional health? Why are we so conscientious about these other appointments, but shy away from or even outright avoid getting our mental and emotional health evaluated? The fact that it isn’t “surface level,” or

something we can be reminded of just by looking in the mirror, doesn’t make mental health any less important to maintain. Taking a deep dive into what’s happening inside our heads and emotions, identifying any mental health concerns is as critical to our overall well being as regularly checking for lumps or measuring blood pressure. There are plenty of proactive health care and wellness recommendations that support our physical health, but nothing for emotional and mental health, and you have to wonder why that is. After

Mental illness is a leading cause of disability in the U.S., with about 20 percent of Americans — approximately 43.8 million people — experiencing mental illness in a given year. Current research shows that mental illness and substance misuse are caused by a combination of genetic, biological, environmental and psychological factors, and can affect anyone regardless of culture, race, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation, religion, financial or socioeconomic status, education or profession. It seems clear that we should take proactive measures on behalf of our mental and emotional health. Yet

“THERE IS THE STIGMA THAT PEOPLE COPING WITH MENTAL ILLNESS ARE IN SOME WAY MORALLY FLAWED. THIS STIGMA BLAMES AN INDIVIDUAL FOR CHEMICAL REACTIONS WITHIN THE BODY THAT THEY HAVE NO CONTROL OVER.”

living productive, meaningful, happy lives. This stigma blames an individual for chemical reactions within the body that they have no control over. “Mental illness” has essentially become synonymous with “crazy,” “incapable,” “worthless” and a slew of other negative connotations. GETTING HELP

With such negative associations surrounding mental illness, it’s no wonder that people aren’t proactive about discussing their mental and emotional health. But that can be changed. To start, at Novant Health UVA Health System we encourage speaking with your existing health care providers about any feelings of anxiety, depression, anger or sadness. We also stress the importance of being honest about drug and alcohol use. There’s a strong correlation between addiction and mental health. By withholding information about the

somehow, our physical health still takes priority while mental health is often put on the back burner. THE STIGMA

Unfortunately, the disconnection of mental health from the rest of physical health has had serious ramifications, including the damaging stereotypes and stigma surrounding individuals who experience mental health or addiction issues. The stereotypical view of mentallyill people as disheveled and roaming the streets while drinking from brown paper bags, using drugs in dark alleyways or talking to themselves, is in actuality far from the truth. The same is true of less-extreme stereotypes such as laziness, carelessness and weakness. The most outwardly strong, puttogether people can be battling serious mental health disorders or addictions that no one knows about. In truth, there is no outward appearance that defines mental illness. There is also the stigma that people coping with mental illness are in some way morally flawed — that there is something corrupt about their upbringing, lifestyle or a choice they’ve made that makes them less capable of

amount or frequency of use, patients inhibit their health care provider’s ability to accurately diagnose or recommend necessary treatments for addiction recovery and for underlying mental illnesses. We also encourage keeping an open mind to your own emotions, as well as the emotions of those around you. There’s no reason for anyone with a mental health condition to experience unnecessary suffering because society says to ‘toughen up’ and not express feelings that are concerning to them. Talking to someone — be it a friend, family member, doctor or therapist — is the first step toward a happy, healthy life and ending the stigma surrounding mental illness. ❖ For information about Novant Health UVA Health System’s behavioral health services, please visit novanthealthuva.org/ services/behavioral-health.aspx, and visit the Mental Health Resources section at www.PiedmontLifestyles.com.

or Meg Hawkins and Eric Provow of Haymarket, giving to others comes as naturally as taking a ride on their Harleys on a warm day. The couple makes beauty from their pain by sharing their story of trauma and through their nonprofit, Making Everything Good. To escape a home life riddled with addiction and pain, Eric joined the Marine Corps as soon as he was able. The military - both the Marines and later the Air Force - gave him the opportunity to fulfill all of his dream jobs, from parachute rigger school to reconnaissance in the Marines to combat controller in the Air Force and in between. But those 20 years in the military included multiple traumatic incidents and left lifelong emotional scars, including a firefight in Afghanistan in 2002 that gave him a glimpse into his own

mortality. When he retired from the military in 2007, he went straight into a job as a firefighter-paramedic. All along, Eric knew he was suffering but didn’t know what it was. He wasn’t sleeping more than two to three hours a night. And when he did sleep, he suffered night terrors. He was difficult to work with and kept everyone at arm’s length because he thought they wouldn’t be able to understand him and the things he had been through. “Meg was the first one to call me out on it,” says Eric of his wife of five years. Eric’s daily symptoms included irritability, especially when driving, hypervigilance, insomnia, and anxiety. His anger flipped like a switch and usually was triggered by situations that didn’t warrant such an extreme reaction. From her training as a police officer, Meg realized he was suffering from PTSD. Even as Meg urged him to seek treatment, there were so many things holding Eric back, things he was deathly afraid of, like the

stigma attached to those who seek therapy and fear that others would see him in a different light. “I didn’t feel comfortable in my own skin,” Eric said. He brushed everything off until he heard another veteran speaking of his own experience with PTSD. When he finally agreed to get counseling, the therapist wasn’t trained for his situation; she tried to “reprogram him” and his symptoms worsened. It all came to a head on January 7, 2017 when Eric disappeared for about 10 hours. Meg was frantic, asking friends to check their home in fear of finding a horrific

scene. Eric was tired of fighting his demons, tired of how he had been treating his wife, and feeling like it would be best for everyone if he left this world. Thankfully, his thoughts eventually turned around and he came home where he and Meg formulated their plan for addressing his PTSD. They found a PTSD-specific psychologist to treat him, and he began the long road to recovery that included Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Prolonged Exposure Therapy. One life-changing event for Meg and Eric was attending a Post Critical Incident Seminar hosted by the Virginia Law Enforcement Assistance Program. The first day, attendees and their spouses shared their stories of trauma in their own words. Meg happened to be sitting where she was to speak before Eric. It was the first time that Eric was able to see and hear the situation through Meg’s eyes. After this seminar said Meg, “It was like a lightbulb that went off for both of us because we both realized how much that night affected me.” Meg emphasizes that the spouses often get overlooked. While they were both in ‘triage mode’ for Eric, Meg was pushing forward while unknowingly deteriorating physically and mentally. “You see, Eric was doing amazing, he was good mentally and physically. I wasn’t having to be the ‘helicopter wife’ 24/7 that I had nicknamed myself. And, I crashed…” Meg says when things began to get worse, she went to her therapist and told her something wasn’t right. Getting out of bed in the morning and doing small tasks around the house were becoming difficult. Her anxiety was climbing, depression deepening, and sleep deteriorating. Her outgoing personality was changing into someone who avoided people and situations. Meg and her therapist identified that she was suffering from PTSD symptoms stemming from her own traumatic event - the night

A fully trained service dog, Denny can recognize and interrupt Eric’s symptoms of anxiety or emotional distress and nightmares. When Eric taps his foot when he’s anxious, Denny places his paw on top of Eric’s foot. If that is unsuccessful, Denny will paw at Eric’s leg or jump on him with his front paws. Denny will repeat these trained techniques if he notices Eric rubbing his hands together, sighs, or breathes differently. “Denny can read Eric's mood very well and keys in when he's starting to get upset or hyped up and will go comfort him,” says Meg.

We need more awareness about how PTSD affects us and every part of our family and life.” “I have a new husband” says Meg of Eric. The nightmares are diminished; the anger subsided. Eric smiles more and describes himself as happy and enjoying life. This ‘post-traumatic growth’ has Eric responding instead of reacting, not isolating himself, and sharing his story more and more.

“I always say, in darkness comes light,” says Meg. The struggles and difficulties both Meg and Eric have been through have created a bond that cannot be broken. They continue to grow closer when they could have easily fallen apart. Although they both recognize no marriage is perfect, they have each other’s backs through sickness and health, the good and the bad. They also know they do not walk this journey alone. The support of their families, friends, and respective departments have made them feel blessed. But maybe most importantly, they remain grateful to be able to share their stories and help others who are suffering to get the help they need.

O gifts for mother’s day

One of the most important days in May is, of course, Mother’s Day. Flowers abound, moms are taken out for brunch, and kids’ artwork from school is sure to cover the refrigerator. But what do moms really want as a special treat on that day? Lifestyle asked some local moms and the answers may surprise you. Hint, most probably can’t be bought. You may even consider taking some tips from them for the special moms in your life this Mother’s Day.

For Mother’s Day, all I really want is to know that my son has absorbed the lessons I’ve shared with him for the last 15 years. To love unconditionally and always be kind. To be patient with himself and learn from his mistakes. To have fun, laugh, be silly, go on adventures and always be present and in the moment. And most importantly, to be true to himself. —C H A R I T Y D U N C A N, M A R S H A L L

Diamond Dreams For Haymarket’s DANIEL QUINTANA, it’s all about baseball

STORY AND PHOTOS BY CHRISTINE CRADDOCK

A

t first meeting, Daniel Quintana appears like most other 16-yearold boys, although perhaps a bit taller than average. The 2021 future grad, standing at 6’ 3” and 180 pounds, is poised to attain a successful high-school career as a pitcher and the chance to compete in college if his commitment and focus perseveres. A self-admitted inordinately competitive person, Quintana thrives on the pressure of winning - whether that be in sports or any other area of life. “Every player’s ultimate goal is to make it to the majors,” says Daniel, but his focus right now is to be the best teammate and contributor to his team. The most recent honor to add to his accomplishments is being chosen to compete in the 2019 Under Armour AllAmerican Pre-season Tournament, an event conducted by Baseball Factory. In January, Quintana traveled to Mesa, Arizona to compete with 400 of the most talented players nationally and quite possibly be scouted by Major League Baseball. But when you dig deeper, Quintana reveals a different side to his personality. He has an understanding of life beyond his years and a self-awareness that is hard to find in teenagers, especially boys. His mom Colleen says that Daniel has always been an old soul. “He is caring, kind, thoughtful, looks out for others, is friends with everyone he comes across...something very special.” And these characteristics carry over into

1 how he approaches sports. “No matter what team Daniel has been on or if he met his teammates that day or has known them for years, you can hear Daniel in the dugout talking every one of his teammates up and cheering them on. While Daniel trains hard on his individual game and himself, he is a true team player on the field and on the sidelines,” says Colleen. Even when life became complicated, “baseball was always a constant” says Quintana who has played the sport since he was 2 years old. The family moved to the Haymarket community when Daniel was 5 after spending time in Texas and Florida, where he was born. Both of these warm-weather states are “powerhouses for baseball” but Daniel affirms that if you truly want to pursue the sport, you seek out opportunities wherever you are. As the Quintanas began to pursue these opportunities to hone Daniel’s talent, there were times when his interest may have waned. “As a mom, I feel as though we might feel and see our children getting burned out or needing a day off to regroup, rest or play with the neighborhood kids once in a while. Allow your child to have this time every so often,” says Colleen. When asked the key to this balance, Daniel’s dad Phil says, “Your children will tell you; you just have to listen.” He also recommends families find coaches that allow the sport to still be fun so that the kids’ enjoyment isn’t hindered by the heat of competition. Although Daniel attended public school for years, the Quintana family made the decision for Daniel to travel a different road for high school. This choice requires quite a bit of sacrifice but the family hasn’t questioned it. Paul VI Catholic High School

in Fairfax provides Daniel a more intimate setting to learn as well as the competitive athletic and academic environment in which he thrives. Everyone - friends, family, neighbors - is involved with helping keep the Quintana family running smoothly. “Haymarket is like that,” Phil says. “I definitely feel that people here genuinely care about each other.” A typical winter weekend might find Quintana traveling to R&D Baseball Academy for Saturday morning training sessions followed by volunteering at a baseball clinic. On Sundays he attends a Paul VI Catholic High School workout in the morning, then more training at R&D Academy in the afternoon. His weekdays include four workouts at Paul VI which total about seven to eight hours a week; and three to four training sessions at R&D Academy totaling seven to 10 hours a week. It would be a rigorous schedule for most, let alone a teenager with schoolwork and

a social life. But the fact that Quintana approaches his difficult schedule without much lamenting shows how deep his passion for the sport runs. When asked which position is his stand out favorite, Daniel speaks to his affinity for pitching. “The pressure is a good thing” he says, “you can’t let it scare you.” Daniel is not just a pitcher though; he has a favorite part of playing every infield position… except catcher. Baseball though, is more than an outlet for Daniel’s athletic talent. It has given him a core group of friends; some of them he has played with since the age of 8. “All my best friends came through sports,” says Daniel, who realizes that friends can also be your biggest competitors. “You push each other to be better and it’s a great thing,” he says. Quintana admits his road to success hasn’t been without stumbles. “How you learn from your mistakes can define you,” he says, referring to a particular experience he says truly taught him how to make the decision between right and wrong. “The point is not to forget and keep moving forward.” Terrific words of wisdom for other teens, from a young man whose future is certain to shine bright on – and off – the pitcher’s mound. ❖

How Thrilling! Haymarket author Juno Rushdan pens a novel of romance and suspense BY FRANNIE BARNES

W

hen I think about authors, I envision them as people who are completely different than me, not someone I might bump into at Target or my kid’s school event. That changed when I had the honor and pleasure of sitting down with Haymarket resident, Juno Rushdan, author of Every Last Breath, the first in a series of romantic suspense novels. Juno is not unlike many people living in Northern Virginia; she’s a veteran, a mom, a wife, and a well-versed traveler. She is also an absolutely fascinating person while still being very down to earth. Her own story is as interesting as the tale she’s woven that landed her a three-book deal from a major publishing house. Hailing from New York, Juno was bound for Syracuse University on a fullride to complete her Juris Doctorate degree, where she would graduate with an undergrad and a law degree in six years. Clearly, she had the grades, ambition and drive to get her there. But while touring the campus, she was approached by an Army recruiter. That fateful conversation put her on a completely different path. Against the wishes of her family, she enlisted in the Army. It’s not that her family didn’t support her, but any parent understands the hard work it takes to get a scholarship, not to mention the free ride. She didn’t see it as derailing her plans for school though, just the chance to choose the path less traveled. She lost her passion for law, but developed a new one for serving her country, and planned on continuing her academic path via the GI Bill.

36

{ MAY 2019 |

After her enlistment ended, she attended The Ohio State University, graduated with a degree in psychology, and decided to return to the military. She joined the U.S. Air Force, attended officer training school, and spent 11 years traveling the world. She met her husband on one deployment, and started a family. After her first child was born, Juno decided to explore her passion for writing. While living in England, she found an agent and wrote a paranormal romance novel. This first foray didn’t go far, but it helped her understand her niche and sharpen her craft. Upon returning to the States, Juno joined the Romance Writers of America where she connected with other writers, shared her work, and became a better writer. Every Last Breath came to her one morning, when she suddenly had an image of a female covert operative who was rushed to recruit someone for an important mission. Because of her knowledge of military intelligence and her sharpened writing skills, publishers felt her book had an authenticity not often found in this genre. Juno understood her characters, the complex issues that come along with being in military intelligence, and the personal dynamics. She used her background and knowledge of threat scenarios as fodder, and formed the plot. 48 hours Two covert operatives One chance to get it right The clock is ticking. The narrative came naturally to her, as it wasn’t hard for her to visualize the scenes. According to Juno, being able to hear the dialogue in her head made it feel authentic. She also credits her

editor, who helped clarify the plotlines and craft the story. Once again, Juno found strength in support from others and recommends that every aspiring writer find a good editor. She completed Every Last Breath in 2016 and it hit shelves April 30. The second book in the series, Nothing to Fear comes out August 27. At present, Juno is writing a third book and, while it’s not a trilogy, there are several characters who appear throughout the books which have been likened to a “sexy Jason Bourne” series. Several New York Times bestselling authors have even written rave reviews after reading advance copies of Nothing to Fear. I for one, can’t wait to read it and have already ordered a copy. I’ve never been a thriller or suspense novel reader, but after meeting Juno and learning how these stories came to be, I can’t wait to get her book in my hot little hands! ❖

Meet Aubrey Hamilton BY CHRISTINE CRADDOCK PHOTOS BY MYRA DOWNEY PHOTOGRAPHY

F

elicia Hamilton of Haymarket remembers feeling disappointed but not surprised when her daughter was diagnosed with autism at age three. As a one year old, Aubrey wasn’t walking or crawling or even emulating behaviors. But the official diagnosis “cemented it into our reality” and we were, “sent on our merry way” with no advice, resources, nothing. After she cried, Felicia says, “I went into attack mode.” She connected with the Autism Society, attending its Autism 101 class, and departed armed with an endless list of resources, information about Medicaid waivers, opportunities for one-on-one classes with professionals in the field, and a list of events designed for autistic children. Meeting and being able to share their experiences with other families was the icing on the cake for the Hamilton family. To this day, they participate in the annual Autism Walk as ‘Aubrey’s Angels’ to support the organization, get more information to families, and network with other parents. The next step in the Hamilton’s journey was getting Aubrey into school. This early intervention was key, and the structured

Now 10 years old, Aubrey is super spunky, sassy, and loving. Says her mom, Felicia Hamilton, “If children were taught to approach Aubrey and ask, ‘can we play with her?’ their lives would be enriched as much as Aubrey’s. Just give her the opportunity, and she’ll show you.”

environment has resulted in a growth and maturity Hamilton doesn’t think Aubrey would have had without it. But the access to these services didn’t come easy. “I feel like I am always fighting. My daughter deserves everything she should get by law,” Hamilton declares. Dealing with the school districts has been grueling - first in the Hampton Road area where the family lived until about three years ago, then Fairfax, and now Prince William. The district will often offer the bare minimum, she says, but it’s up to the parents to push for what their child needs. After witnessing so many overwhelmed and uninformed parents, Hamilton started helping other families, becoming an advocate in her own right, and was appointed to the Virginia Board for People with Disabilities in 2015. Her position as Chair of the Policy, Research and Evaluation Committee allows her to impact change by looking at the developmental disability laws for our community and advocating for changes. Yet another challenge was finding a provider for ABA therapy. At one time, there was a year-long waiting list. Another time, the provider simply wasn’t a good fit for Aubrey’s specific needs. Fast forward to today and the move to Northern Virginia; Aubrey now has a fantastic ABA therapist who comes to the house daily. Hamilton recommends that when searching for your

own ABA provider, seek input from other families and evaluate provider personalities carefully. Also, since Prince William County doesn’t allow therapists to provide services in school, make sure the provider has flexible scheduling, including before and after school and weekends. Hamilton also highly recommends Fairfax County’s Therapeutic Recreation Programs. “Being able to send my child to interact with other children while being cared for by trained staff has given Aubrey some of the best experiences.” As for a “fix” for autism, Hamilton says, don’t look for it. Instead she counsels parents not to focus on one thing because if you do, you may miss discovering what could be the most helpful. The Hamilton family follows the motto ‘how do we make life better for Aubrey?’ and answering that question has not been easy. One of the most arduous aspects of Aubrey’s autism is that she is nonverbal. Add to that a diagnosis of epilepsy that resulted in having a pacemaker implanted in her brain to halt her seizures and the use of a magnetic device to bring her out of breakthrough episodes, and the fact that she’s thriving is nothing short of miraculous. Doctors said Aubrey wouldn’t walk but she “sprints like she’s in the Olympics” and loves to “dance her little heart out,” says Hamilton. She’s also “one of the happiest

kids you will ever meet,” says her mom. One particularly unique trait Aubrey has is the ability to sense a person’s character. “She is a very good people judger” explains Hamilton, “with senses even better than mine.” Now 10 years old, Aubrey is super spunky, sassy, and loving. She shares hugs and kisses and has incredible eye contact and although she doesn’t process like her peers and exhibits behaviors not typical for her age, Aubrey is very independent. “She doesn’t need your pity,” says Hamilton, who spends a good deal of time helping Aubrey make friends. Her nonverbal state impacts so much of their lives and often leads to some awkward interactions. If children were taught to approach Aubrey and ask, “can we play with her?” their lives would be enriched as much as Aubrey’s. Says her mom, “Just give her the opportunity and she’ll show you.” ❖

Oregon, buy the numbers ... BY MARK LUNA

A

s it’s been for the last several years in the wine world, the month of May is recognized as Oregon Wine Month. And if what’s happening there continues, as far as winemaking is concerned, May might very well turn out to be just one of many months of every year that we celebrate what has become the fastest growing wine region in the country. I’ve written about Oregon wines before, and what a wonderful place it truly is, especially the Willamette Valley (it’s wil-LAM-met, dammit!) and its most cherished varietal, pinot noir. But, there’s so much more to the state’s wine riches than the WV and PN; and when one truly examines the numbers beyond the sales, the focus beyond the intent, and the stories behind the production,

it’s evident that, in this country at least, no other state even comes close to Oregon in terms of identifying itself solely on the quality of its wines. Oregon winemakers, past and present, are true pioneers, carrying with them a determination and grit reflective of the early Oregon Trail days. Visionaries such as Peter Britt, who in 1847 established the Northwest’s first winery, and Richard Sommer, who built Oregon’s first post-prohibition winery in the Umpqua Valley (in 1961), planting riesling, chardonnay and the state’s first pinot noir

vines, established early marks. Soon after Sommer’s successful establishment of Hill Crest Vineyard, in southern Oregon, other winemakers migrated to this warm, dry growing region. His work laid the foundation for David Lett, Charles Coury and Dick Erath, who from 1965 – 1968 would change Oregon forever, planting pinot noir vines in the cool climate reaches of the Willamette Valley. Here are some fun facts that define the various winemaking scenes of Oregon, and can perhaps enlighten one about a wine place of lesser familiarity than say, neighboring California. There are over 700 wineries and four main growing regions in Oregon: Willamette Valley, Southern Oregon, Columbia Gorge, and Walla Walla Valley. A smaller fifth region called Snake Valley is located on the eastern state line, bordering Idaho. Within the four main regions though, there are 19 AVA’s (American Viticulture

Southern Oregon represents 24% of plantings, with areas that include Umpqua, Rogue and Apple Valleys…a warmer, more temperate part of the state, with varietals such as cabernet sauvignon, syrah and tempranillo. The balance of plantings are found in the northern region(s) of Columbia Gorge and Walla Walla Valley, bordering Washington State. Even further beyond the work in the fields, legislative

decisions that were made in the infancy stages of the Oregon wine business, in the 1960’s and early ’70’s – by farmers, winegrowers and politicians alike – not only protected Oregon’s lands and resources, but also provided a safe passage for the vision that was being created at that time. Early laws like the Beach Bill, which granted public recreational rights to the dry sands of public beaches, thus protecting them, and the Bottle Bill, one of the first recycling bills in America, set the stage for Senate Bill 100, passed in 1973, which protected farmlands from urban growth, requiring cities and counties to make comprehensive, land use plans. These laws and practices allowed for unprecedented wine/ vineyard growth throughout the 1970’s and 80’s. Add to that the various certification boards that were created in the 1990’s and 2000’s, such as LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology), one of the most authoritative sustainability accreditations in the wine world, Salmon Safe and the Deep Roots Coalition, which forbids any irrigation of vines, all on the heels of Demeter Certified Biodynamic, the most

California that exceed hundreds of thousands of cases annually, Oregon is a mere blade of grass in a giant state park, if you will, as it produces only 1% of fine wine in the country. There are multiple producers in California and Washington State that make more wine than all Oregon wineries combined. On the grape side of things, pinot noir accounts for 58% of Oregon’s total production, as expected. After that, pinot gris sits at 14%. And while Oregon grows 72 varieties of wine grapes, including Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon,

As the industry grew, so did the demands for sustainable practices. The truth telling numbers of quality speak for themselves. Of those 700 plus wineries throughout the state, another whopping 70% of them produce about 5,000 cases each year, with 52% of wine coming from estate-grown fruit.

Riesling and more, it’s the two pinot(s) that make up over twothirds of its production. Throughout the entire state, you’ll find one producer after another who farms their (wine) land completely organically. You’ll also find the practice of irrigating wines decreasing, which ultimately forces those vines to grow as deep as possible for water and nutrients, allowing for very low, concentrated yields, producing extraordinary fruit, and creating extraordinary wines. Oh, and for you wine score lovers out there, between

Wine writer and James Beard award winner Cole Danehower said it best: Great Wine = (Place + Plant) x People. Very few places in the wine world truly maximize that equation like Oregon; and in just 50 years, it has evolved not only into a world-class winegrowing state, but has done so by protecting its abundant, treasured resources. If you’re looking for a wine trip this year, go to Oregon…you’ll remember it forever. Until next time, Happy Vino’ing! ❖

A bigger, better place to adopt a cat, and more fire stations to call when it’s stuck in a tree

Plans are in place for Prince William County to begin construction on a new animal shelter this summer, with completion expected in February 2021. The new $15.1 million shelter will replace the facility on the same property at 14807 Bristow Road. It will include 56 dog kennels and 104 cat kennels, with space to address surge capacity related to animal cruelty and hoarding cases. Additionally, the shelter will have a welcome area, a space for families to interact with the animals, a veterinarian’s office, feed and equipment storage areas and grooming space. "It's a big investment, but it'll last this community a long time, so it's the right thing to do,” said Corey Stewart, chairman of the board of county supervisors.

A NOTE FROM THE DESK OF THE EARTH Dear Earthlings,

The county is also in the process of building several fire stations. The new Coles District fire station is expected to be completed by June 30, the new Nokesville station will be finished in August, and construction will begin on a new fire station at 11600 Balls Ford Road this spring.

Everything old is new again:

Aden Road's historic truss bridge returns! The historic, wrought-iron, truss bridge and the recently constructed one-lane bridge carrying Aden Road, Va. 646, over the Norfolk Southern Railroad have reopened to traffic. Built in 1882 for the Keystone Bridge Company, the truss bridge was purchased in the early 1900s and moved to Aden Road. The old truss structure showed substantial structural deficiencies, so a revised design was developed with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources and the community to allow it to be rehabilitated as well as remain on the National Register of Historic Places. While final detail work on the $8 million project will occur into the spring, it is now in place to accommodate northbound traffic, alongside the newly constructed span open to southbound vehicles, enabling two-way traffic over the railroad for the first time.

Glass and certain plastics are no longer being collected curbside by the county. Instead, please use the bins provided for glass at the Prince William County Landfill, 14811 Dumfries Road, and the Balls Ford Road Compost Facility, 13000 Balls Ford Road. Glass collected at these two locations will be sent to a local crushing plant and be used in construction projects. The county has also removed plastic containers and tubs from the recycling requirement. Even though these items have been removed, please continue to recycle cardboard, clean paper, plastic bottles and jugs, and aluminum and steel cans. Please also remember that items placed in recycling containers should be empty, clean, dry and loose, which means they shouldn’t be placed in a plastic bag.

Paul Morrison

D I V O R C E M E D I AT I O N HOW IT WORKS 1. You decide to be in charge of the outcome of your own case instead of letting a Judge tell you what to do. 2. You or your lawyer contacts our mediation coordinator, Sharon Wiggins, who sends initial paperwork and sets up a pre-mediation conference call with Paul to ascertain the issues, schedule the date and place for the mediation and set ground rules. 3. Show up with an open mind and settle your case with Paul’s help.

COST Paul requires a $3500 to be placed in a trust account and billed against. This fee is usually split between the parties. Paul bills at $350 per hour for mediation services. Most cases are successfully resolved in less than 8 hours.

About Paul Morrison

Paul began his own law firm in 1987, concentrating on trial work including primarily Family law. In 1999, Paul began performing neutral case evaluations and mediations with an emphasis on high asset divorce cases.

With a success rate of over 95%, Paul began offering his services to the Northern Virginia, Piedmont area in 2017. As a practicing lawyer, Paul has a unique insight into the current judicial thinking, which gives him the tools to obtain inexpensive settlements and avoid costly and emotionally exhausting litigation for his mediation clients.

Remove the mystery–when it’s time to move on, call Paul!
