Thanks for Support

Thanks, everybody, for your support. I can hardly wait for the editors and the person writing the foreword to finish their work. But it took me a few years to write A Battle Plan for Joy, so I can’t complain about a few more months. Still the excitement is building. Waiting for my book to […]
