Somehow we are old enough that I've known my friend Charlie for half our lives. And then the story loosely goes that we returned from a college semester overseas and he helped set me up with his roommate. Since that guy ended up becoming my husband, I still owe him for that! And things got even better when Erin came into the picture and I got another forever friend. She's pretty much the most wonderful, intentional mom out there, and her four boys adore her. She's created a curriculum full of intentional ways for parents to shape the hearts of our children (please do yourself a favor and check out these amazing free resources at characterbuildsjoy.com) and it's a blessing every time I get to see these sweet faces.
