I’M NOT BROKEN

After training with a generational circus family, Darla knew aerial arts was what she was born to do. “I was like, I’m supposed to do that. So I trained with them in the backyard in this big white tent.”

Though she found her passion, she felt broken and faced the difficult journey of self discovery and self worth. In the end she found there was something more to her life and turned this beautiful art into a gift for others who struggle. 90&9 was started to find those who have fallen to the floor and help them rise from the ashes and tell their story. “You may be bruised, but you’re not broken! You are a fighter.”

13 Year Old Raises $20,0000 for Cancer

“There is no such thing as a child too young to get cancer. Therefore, there is no such thing as child that is too young to help. So I might be ‘just a kid’, but I am armed with a voice and the determination to make a difference in the lives of children with cancer.” 

At just 13 years old, Geoffrey raised over $20,000 for The Tyler Robinson Foundation to help families facing a pediatric cancer diagnosis. Geoffrey’s efforts inspired a worldwide movement for others to use their talents to create donations for these deserving families.

“Am I cut out for this?” Parenting a child with Down Syndrome.

As a parent, we know we can never wake up fully prepared for what the day will bring with our children.

A lot of parents, with a down syndrome diagnosis, have doubts and concerns about the future.

How wonderful to have communities and groups like the Utah Down Syndrome Foundation, who give hope to parents that they can do this and have joy in the process.

“We are so impressed with these children and parents that are so full of life. They have such stamina for life and courage to experience what they experience. “

You can do this and you don’t have to do it alone!

From Prostitution to Forgiveness

0

“How could I forgive myself for all of these things I had done.”

The pathway of making decisions can take us down many paths.
What do you do when you can see all the damage you have done to your life? How do you change your life story to one of happiness, forgiveness and recovery?
What is forgiveness? What does forgiveness mean for someone who’s life story led to drugs and prostitution.

This is why we do what we do. Capturing stories that belong to people like you and us. The stories of failure, trials, wrong decisions but the triumph of making changes, finding hope and turning darkness into light.

These stories stir something inside us for good.

We hope you will watch this story to the end as she answers the questions above and gives hope to those who are in a place of having to forgive themselves or someone else.

Send us a message if you, your company or organization have a story to share!
We would love to hear your story!
