  5. I just finished reading a book called, "I Am Potential" by Patrick Henry Hughes. This young man was born without eyes and limbs that will not fully extend. His story and his faith of doing whatever he puts his mind to (even being in a Marching Band thanks to his dad) is inspiring!

  6. How cool that you came back and posted, Sheila! I had forgotten about the page and now I'm back looking at all of the great ideas. Thanks for the new book on my stack!
