Hey Guys!

Just a little bit about our new community and what we hope will come from it.

The Lionheart Society is going to be a completely positive place. We understand that there are some days when you just need to rant and get some things off your chest, but this is not the place for that!

We hope that on the site you are able to find a community of people around you! Whether it be an online community, or maybe you find a group of people who are nearby that you are able to get coffee with and be able to encourage each other and help each other through hard times.

We hope that you begin to form friendships on here! A pen pal miles away, or maybe it is someone in your neighborhood that you never knew. This can be as easy as something to wake up to and read; as a morning pick me up.  The point is… create a community and a support system! Continue reading About
