Summer break!  The kids are out of school and now we can do all the fun things!

I’ve been gathering endorsements for my new book, “Expect God.”  I’ve also been continuing to organize and clean the house.  It’s never ending!

Sports. Sports. Sports.

~What I’m Excited About~

I’m starting to make lists and plan for our vacation next month.  I can’t wait!

~What I’m Reading~

I’m reading A Simplified Life by Emily Ley.  So far, I’m really liking it!  It’s about simplifying your space to make room for what matters most.
