Words that my soul needed today from +Jerusalem Greer
I have decided not to buy a Fitbit. I know everyone was on the edge of their seats, waiting to see if I would. I am nothing if not a trendsetter for personal health habits (I say this completely tongue-in-cheek, my favorite sport is croquet after all.) But no, I have decided. No Fitbit for me.

Introduction
Lover of Christ.  Wife.  Mother.  Homeschooler.  Former teacher who still loves to read and learn.
