Weekend Reads


I hope the unofficial beginning of summer has provided opportunity for you to be outside and enjoy the season. May the majority of your summer be filled with sunshine, relaxing evenings, and walks in the park.

Let me encourage you to find time these months to slow down, grow some tomatoes, and eat breakfast together as family. And as your weekend begins, may you find encouragement, inspiration, and practical help in this weekend’s simple reads. Thanks for making us part of your summer.
