Resources While You’re Home

While most of us are staying home, I thought I’d offer some resources to keep you busy, entertained, and full of hope.

First, I’m excited to offer Stay At Home Story Time with Sally over on Instagram! We’ll read books together, do some activities, I’ll answer your questions, and other fun things are planned. Follow on Instagram, and watch my stories. Most videos will be available for 24 hours, and some will be saved to my highlights. I can’t wait to spend time with you there.
