If ALL you got at CHI was any two of the following things, the experience is well worth the money–and of course, you […]

Thoughts after BYU’s Education Week, and hope for young moms

Part 2 of 5 In a very huge curriculum across all topics, I found next to nothing on nutrition. I should really teach at Education Week. Somebody make that happen and I’m there.   On Friday, though, I went to a class called Stocking A Healthy and Convenient Pantry.  Please make careful note of the […]
