I mentioned this in a previous blog article, but it’s coming up so I thought I’d remind you about it. I am one of the break out speakers at this year’s Be Ready conference in Calgary. My subject is suffering, as seen through the lens of Denise’s situation. Broadly speaking, here’s what you can expect, if you attend:
Regular readers of my blog may have noticed that there is less regular to read these days. I figured a brief update on recent developments was in order. Don’t worry; nothing dramatic or catastrophic.

If you’ve read my blog for a while you may have noticed that I’m not a fan of social media.
