Sticky Notes for A Child's Heart Vol. 2
My four boys are ages 18,15, 13, and 11. Our lives are busy and I wanted to find a way to remind them about God.

Feeling Frazzled
There were many times in my life that I felt frazzled and life was way too hectic. These were the instances that it was necessary for me to revisit the priorities that I wholeheartedly believed in. They literally helped me to define my days. God’s Word, through Titus 2 & Proverbs 31, had given me a passion to learn these truths and then later teach them to other women.
