What We Learned // Coming on November 30! Every quarter, we share what we learned that season. Here’s my What I Learned This Summer post – mark your calendar for November 30 and prepare to link up with your own post.

Dear reader, I’m glad you’re here. Every month or so I send out a letter from the bench, where I share the books I’m reading, what I’m into, and some reflections to help you create space for your soul to breathe. I’ll send one  out next week, right before Thanksgiving. Sign up here if you’d like to receive it.
