For the last couple weeks, I’ve been blogging about “Saving Grace,” and how Grace battles her demons with the angel Earl at her side encouraging her to choose the path of love and healing, not isolation and fear.

The deadline is December 18, the one year anniversary of Beyond Blue! Click here to read the rules and regulations for this contest.
