    Meg, I truly enjoy all your Motivational Minutes and Scriptures of the Week videos. Your positive outlook on life is contagious! I was inspired by your videos to begin a blog that only shares positive, uplifting messages. I feel good just by sharing some good to whoever wishes to read what I post. Please keep sharing your videos, thoughts, and experiences. It truly is a service for all of us who listen and read your posts.
