Coaching Testimonial

Hey there! I just wanted to thank you again for the idea to send a little something to the parents in our ministry! We ended up making magnets & including a gift card to a local taco shop. And putting it all in some pretty cool affirming cards that I found on amazon. They arrived at family’s houses today & I’ve already had 3 moms reach out to say thanks. That’s more than any other ‘project’ I’ve done all of COVID!! So, THANK YOU SO MUCH! It has been well received!
