January 20: We keep a lot of things in our heads, but we put less down on paper. All those thoughts and ideas bouncing around can sometimes feel overwhelming.

But it’s one thing to want to start journaling, and another to actually do it. With everything already on our plates, how can we dedicate time to sitting down and writing each day? Come start the year with us and learn how to journal. A fun and interactive class taught by Jacque Brock Saturday at 10:30am.
