Bible Study! Nutritionist Consultation! Bank! Oils!

Hello friends!

Meet up at Chikfila for a Bible study on Galatians. Enjoyed it. I love that we don’t have to work for salvation.

Had fun with Courtney and her daughter. She taught me more about Doterra oils and cloth diapering. Both were a lot easier to use than I thought.
