  1. These are wonderful! I have been printing them off to use as the springboard for my own planning since week 1. I just wondered if there was a way to bump the email back a bit. I often get the devotionals on Monday but by then my day has started and planning has to be done. If the emails could go out of Sunday, it would be great to allow for some planning. Just a suggestion. Great lessons!

  2. What is the name of The Living Scriptures video referenced in the fhe for 3/25/19? Thank you for these ideas.
