We were first introduced to ministries at this local church by a friend of mine whose son participated in "BG Club" on Friday evenings during the school year. The idea intrigued and I told my wife about it. We sent Alec, then 5, to the club in early April and the rest is history. He loved it.

I guess you have a clue as to what I am about to discuss...Number two, bowel movements, stools, you know what I am talking about...

At the beginning of the month I knew June would be difficult for me, there were events coming up that would make it very hard to stay on track. I ended up gaining three pounds in June. I have decided to start July fresh and focused on introducing some (6 comments)
