“Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today
to get through this thing called life.”
— Prince

Intro Letter by Chris Ruch

‘What is Revelo?’ Over the past months, we’ve been asked this question probably more than any other. Being a naturally curious group, we yearn for readers to just start exploring and discover what Revelo is for themselves. But of course, we understand a quick answer is generally preferred.

Revelo, at its core, is real stories from real people that reveal something deep about them.

Each of us has forged our way through life— gathering with us the stories that make us who we are. May that story be a discovery, lesson, hurdle overcome, wound healed, creative act or something transformative—we hope that our storytellers challenge and inspire you.

We produce Revelo in two different formats — whether you prefer to read or watch videos, we’ve got you covered.

We wish to express our deep appreciation to the local business sponsors who embrace the vision of this idea. Without them, our efforts would not be possible.

So, now that you know what Revelo is, go ahead and dive in!
