My intent to blog more often has not become a reality … nothing like posting April’s resolution update mid-May. I’ll be honest, April was incredibly busy at church so my personal time was nonexistent. But the month of April was pretty awesome with collaborations with a local ministry partner to plan a women’s conference in June, Holy Week festivities, a trip to see PawPaw and Mimi, launching CarePortal, and hosting Touch-A-Truck, which was a huge success for the community despite the weather.
