Doing Anything Next Tuesday?

I opened up my email yesterday to find…well, me, staring back at me. Not really staring.  “Staring off into the distance, kind of squinty-like” is a better way of putting it. So I’m doing a webinar for our state convention next Tuesday at 2 …

All In

Merriem and I attended the wedding of our friends Nathan & Cheryl this weekend, much to my kids’ chagrin and my delight. My kids hate weddings.  My second-born, Austin, also hates funerals.  He said on Saturday, “I’m not even going to my own funeral.  I …
