Congrats to our JSFL Community!

“It would be hard to find someone as sensitive and nurturing as Joan Scheckel to the difficult process of having all these feelings, articulating them in a way others can relate to, even when you can't even when it's beyond your present skill set. The questions and the wrestling bring me to a much deeper understanding of what I'm trying to do."
Mike Mills (Writer/Director)
