I can hardly contain my glee……..

I’ve been published.

I haven’t actually seen the January edition of the magazine yet, but that doesn’t matter. What does matter is that the article I wrote on a whim over two years ago has finally been put in print.

It’s in a church publication (The Ensign), and the article is about my twins……distribution is to over a million people!

I can’t think of anything more humbling this holiday season than this reminder of how abundantly I’ve been blessed.
