I hope that your week is going well, fellow “book clubber”! Are
you enjoying and/or being challenged by this week’s resolution? I am completely
aware that one (being challenged) might be cancelling out the other (enjoying

meet Laura Rasnic from Toledo, Texas. I spotted her in a conference audience
boldy wearing her “I AM RESOLVED” T-Shirt. She looked lovely and had
a gorgeous personality to match.
Thanks for being a part of our book club Laura! It was a privilege to
Bless you all today,
