More time at home is giving us a unique opportunity to connect with our families. I have learned new things about each of my girls over the past few months.

As the world starts turning again, take stock of what is truly important, and protect time with your flock.
Proverbs 27:23: “Know the state of your flocks, and put your heart into caring for your herds…”
