The New Year has already brought its share of stress for many of us. Whether we’re at home or at work, there doesn’t seem to be enough time for ourselves or much of a chance to re-charge our batteries and escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

On our February program, we talk about the importance of “being good to yourself.”

Ann Denney and Pat Hoerth are the daughters of former Oklahoma Governor and Mrs. Henry Bellmon.  They are the founders and proprietors of Turtle Rock Farm Retreat, a 1600 acre family farm near Billings, Oklahoma. The retreat is a center for sustainability and healing and it serves as a vivid reminder that humans are spiritual beings and that we need to replenish our spirits every now and then and re-connect with the earth in order to maintain a more balanced life.
