Hello! My April vacation was filled with fun opportunities to share my message with the world.  I spent last Tuesday at the CatholicTV studio, attending their daily Mass (Mom and I make little appearances here!), and being a guest on their live show, This is the Day....

Hello! I haven’t written here in two weeks because life has been crazy… but it’s Easter! Alleluia! (Wasn’t it just New Year’s though, and now it’s April? What??)  The year has flown by, but it’s been filled with great things.
