Girls Rule at CHICABRAVA

By Lisa Collins-Haynes Las Vegas Informer Have you ever jumped?  No, I don’t mean up and down.  I mean really jumped.  As in took a running jump and leaped on nothing but faith?  Recently I did, and I can honestly say it changed my life.  My jump led me to an unassuming town off the […]
