I’m an avid reader and always have been. In fact, when my parents went to the Parent Teacher meeting with my grade 5 teacher, he told them to get me a public library card, because I had already read everything in the school library.

willpower. (How many times has my willpower
failed?!) It’s also designed to be done
as a group and not simply on our own.
Jesus said where 2 or more are gathered in HIS name there in the middle
of them He’d be. (Matthew 18:20) and it’s that power the Daniel Plan is
