    S.T.A.R.T. 7: Timing

       Timing  Know when and how to share  A very wise man, and friend, Pastor Denny Livingston has taught me that timing is everything, and I wholeheartedly agree.

    S.T.A.R.T. – The Writing Circle

      In this month’s S.T.A.R.T. Workshop, I want to share with you a simple way to put pen to paper, or fingers to keys, and start writing.
