Save the Date :: The Nest Fest by The Nester – Apply to be a vendor or just come shop and hang out! I can’t wait for this event at The White Barn.

I made an audio devotional for you called 7 Days of Still Moments. It will run all summer – the day you sign up is your Day 1. It’s free and each day is less than 5 minutes. To start Day 1 today, enter your email here and I’ll do the rest. Let’s continue gently into summer with a long, deep breath.
