Spring has sprung! My April bookshelf is filled with parables and secrets. Last month, I read Debbie Macomber’s newest release If Not for You. You will have an opportunity to read my review in the May issue of the Midwest Book Review. I’m taking a leadership course that is reading intensive. It has really cut

I think I was sitting in church in Atlanta the firt time I heard someone say, “If you’re not changing and growing then you’re dying.” The weight of that statement has become more to me over the years as I’ve gotten older, watched my children grow from infants to little people–one is even 10 years
