    Thank you for posting this to address all of the, “nuts and bolts” of this topic. Overviews are certainly helpful, but getting into detail is very beneficial to those of us who were never taught by example (or were taught poorly). My husband and I are looking forward to hearing you both speak further on this topic in future posts. Again, thank you for taking the time to share the wisdom that The Lord has blessed you with.
