As Thanksgiving Day 2015 comes to a close, I am reminded how truly blessed I am. This past year, I experienced some health issues. I am happy to say that God has restored my body and I feel great! I am so grateful for God who knows my every thought and need.
One thing that I am especially thankful for this year is my wonderful staff. I am very proud of each person that helps make up the SGN Scoops Team. They are truly the best and I thank God for each one of them every day.
Finally, I am thankful for each of you that read the online magazine and the printed newspaper. God is doing amazing things!
Here’s one of my favorite songs. Enjoy!
