Walking through Fear

I have been procrastinating writing this blog for months now – any and every excuse has gotten in the way.  And justifiable ones too!  Family, my job, commitments to friends, you name it.  Looking back, I have let everything get in the way of launching this site.  And if I’m really honest with myself, there […]
