SCKMC enters ‘Stone Age’ with #620rocks near medical center chapel

A new craze is sweeping Cowley County and South Central Kansas Medical Center is jumping on the bandwagon. #620rocks is a local Facebook group dedicated to spreading joy through one of the planet’s most common items — rocks. Many might have noticed the brightly colored rocks sitting around Arkansas City — some with painted pictures, others with inspirational words, but all designed to make people’s days better. “Our goal is to make random acts of kindness by ‘hiding’ the rocks in unexpected places to brighten the finder’s day,” said Cheryl Boyce, the group’s administrator. Administrators at SCKMC noticed the tiny works of art appearing around the hospital campus and reached out to the group to try to harness its creativity for something even larger.

Unraveling is a fun, fascinating continuation of Ella’s Unblemished saga

What happens when happily ever after starts to unravel? Unraveling, the eagerly awaited sequel to Sara Ella’s debut fantasy, Unblemished, is a fun and fascinating continuation. Ella once again plumbs the depths and complexity of human nature while highlighting the battle of light and dark. El’s continued battle with The Void is contrasted with the emotional battle she is fighting within. Ella has created a diverse multiverse, peopled with intriguing creatures and beings. While the Unblemished series is being published by Thomas Nelson, a Christian publisher, the actual Christian content is fairly light. The romance in the series runs a little more secular than most Christian fiction, so if that bothers you, be aware. Otherwise, be prepared for another fascinating world and fun tale. About Sara Ella Once upon a time, Sara Ella dreamed she would marry a prince and live in a Disney-style castle. Today, she is a winner of the ECPA Christian Book Award for her debut novel, Unblemished, which was released to magical applause: “a stunning journey into a fascinating new world of reflections” (RT Book Reviews). Ella spends her days throwing living room dance parties for her two princesses and conquering realms of her own imaginings.
