A NOTE FROM MS. WELLS

We are just about halfway through Lent. I am checking in on myself and my promises to pray more, give more and avoid my bad habits. I am doing better with some than others! How is Lent going for you and your children? Are you feeling closer to God? Do you need to start or stop something - it is not too late to make or keep a Lenten resolution!
