The Quote Book / / June 2013

/ / T h e   Q u o t e   B o o k / /
Dear Readers,
Welcome to this months The Quote Book!

Bethany and I (Madi) each keep a special journal close to us when we are reading our beloved books, and in this journal we record our thoughts on some passages, but mostly we record quotes. One day we decided to share these quotes that we find on a monthly basis with our faithful readers and followers. Our goal in this is to bring you encouragement in words that we found encouragement, and maybe bring you a chuckle or two ;) . Enjoy!
