Good morning friends,
I hope you had a wonderful holiday yesterday. Today I thought I’d keep it light. I love to read. I read fiction, non-fiction, and cereal boxes. Here are my three favorite books I’ve read this year. Please return the favor and share what your favorites are and why.

Morning friends, Hope you had a great weekend. I got a bad cold but had a great speaking event at the Casablanca Bridal Shop in Newport Beach, California. The sponsoring organization, Celebrate Forever, seeks to educate couples on what makes relationships work, and equip them with the tools and skills to transform bad relational habits…
Morning friends, I hope you are getting some time this season to savor our Saviors coming to this planet to show us what God is like. I’ve always loved the first chapter of John, especially these verses, “So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love…
