Faith and Family Dynamics: "This is going to be a really good exercise in putting into practice all the things regarding faith and surrender and trust that we often talk about. I mean, it's one thing to read these spiritual books and to hear the readings and talk about it. It is another to put it into practice." ~ Shelly on Dodging Drama on Family Vacations
