3 Books that Helped my Mama Heart

Tonight I had the chance to talk about the 3 books that helped my mama heart on Periscope. Are you on Periscope? Do you know what it is?

Ok – first up, it’s an awesome smart phone app that allows you to LIVE BROADCAST and watch others’ live broadcasts… and while you might think at first that it’s going to be lame broadcasts of people just hanging out – but if you follow the RIGHT people, it’s not. You can find all kinds of helpful info and periscopers who are just there to share their knowledge. It’s amazing! You can find me there by searching @MissyFitGleason 🙂

Ok! To the reading – 3 books for moms! Onward!!Screen Shot 2015-09-04 at 8.04.42 PM
