Note from Becky
As I write this message, I am very saddened by the passing of my father-in-law. The perfect example of a loving husband of over 70 years, father of 3 (+3 spouses), grandfather to 7, and great grandfather to 4. I lost my dad when I was just 13, but I was blessed to have this man in my life from the time I was 17. He will be greatly missed. Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers for our family. We truly appreciate your support.
I hope you’ll join us for this month’s webinar on May 10 as we host Dr. Dean Elbe. Please enjoy this month’s news, featured courses and resources! Have a lovely month!
