So Long, Farewell…

Friends, MyPurposeNow.org will be four years old this month. The site development was a gift from Deb’s son, Cameron for Mother’s Day. It was the push we needed to move from “it’s a really good idea, to let’s do this!” The past several months have brought many changes to each of our lives.
