Hello! I’m getting married in a month so no blogs will be happening for the next few weeks. Please feel free to come to the blog and see the show notes and verses each week though! Also, Susan would like to hear any questions you have. In the coming months, we will try to have an additional segment where we discuss and try to answers what other questions listeners leave for us. So if that’s you, make sure to leave a comment on the blog below.
