Meet each day with a smile!
I am a mom, wife, lover of God, social media coach with a company called LBS Consult. I'm a blogger and mental health advocate with a daily paper on Twitter called Living Above The Madness. I have a company by the same name.
I blog for mental health, business and fun. I have lots of blogs. And a lot to be grateful for.
