Saturday, March 15, 2014, 2:30-3:30pm

Rediscover your capacity to believe in what can become possible. This workshop will leave you inspired, motivated and ready to jump into action.

Ink in the Wheels: Stories to Make Love Roll

Barton and Megan are excited to announce 

the publication of their memoir: 

Ink in the Wheels: Stories to Make Love Roll  

Our journey together is etched in wheelchair tracks,
carved by laughter and love; these are the stories of our lives.

~Barton and Megan Cutter

As a child, Barton dreamed of walking his bride down the aisle and whisking her over the threshold in his arms. His vision dwindled as he grew older, but he never fully accepted the label of cerebral palsy or the limitations that others placed on him. Megan was at the cusp of defining her identity as a young woman and writer but wasn’t sure how to define love, and she certainly never expected love to carry her away on a wheelchair.

This unlikely couple encountered each other for the first time at a martial arts seminar in Tucson, Arizona. Little did they know that their connection would lead to a life of adventure, passion, and purpose. Together, they defied the odds.

Ink in the Wheels: Stories to Make Love Roll depicts the journey of an inter-ability married couple as they explore the courage and perseverance to thrive in a relationship.

Together, they share their own story and dive into themes of intimacy, family influences and dynamics, creating external and internal support networks, direct support staff and the balance of care giving, losing faith in each other and themselves- and finding it again.

Here are what attendees at their release event had to say.
