Weekend Reading

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Hey everyone. A bit of a difficult week, wasn’t it? Since the Boston incident, I’ve had less spring in my step, especially after reading and watching all the news accounts, and all the reports this morning are incredible. I’m still processing it all and praying for the people there.

I left town yesterday and I’m in Salt Lake City today at the SNAP Conference. I’m presenting on this topic with Mandi and Melissa, it should be a great conversation for all who attend!
