Skills for Living is a registered charity in the US, the UK and Kenya. SFL also has NGO status in Kenya under the same name.

During its history Skills for Living has provided retreats, seminars, workshops, day programmes and facilitator training to assist people to transform their thinking and thereby transform their lives. Since 1991 we have been receiving remarkable testimonies of changes lives, restored families, renewed hope and strengthened relationships.

In 2001 Walt and Valerie were invited to speak in Kenya. The teaching was well received and from that visit has grown a group of dedicated men and women in that country who are now imparting these principles of responsible living in 25 churches, 6 pre-schools and 3 widow’s tailoring schools.

In October of 2007 Walt Acuff passed from this world. He is very much missed by many around the world. Valerie is continuing the work in Kenya with the help and support of people who care and who want to share their resources, time and ideas.

The retreats, workshops, and day programmes are currently on hold until 2009. You can check this web site then to see what the future holds for these avenues of experience and learning.

The facilitator training for teaching ‘A Life Worth Loving’ and ‘Building Healthy Relationships’ will still be available. If you are interested in more information on these you can contact Chris Webster at,

On a personal note:

I took the artwork to Michaels and am having it triple matted in a very African looking black frame. I will send you a photo when it is hung. I expect it to be finished in about 2 weeks.

At the end of the month I have to have surgery on my other knee. The bad news is it is surgery – the good news is I will be confined to home for a few days and will be able to finish this webpage with you.

From today until March 24 I have company and will be out of town. Can we arrange another appointment for the 26th or the 27th at a time that works for your schedule? Please let me know date and time that will work for you and I will be there.
