Save the Date! 

Here are the 2020 dates we have planned. 







Well, this year plans are changing rapidly. Some events are canceled. Some events have been moved online. Some events are the same. Some events are brand new!! KEEP IN TOUCH either by following me on facebook, checking in here, through texting or even [gasp!] phone calls (I can facetime too). I'm here; the Close To My Heart offices are open and shipping product and we will get through this TOGETHER.

May 15-16 CTMH Virtual Album Retreat
I attended several album retreats in the past and they are AWESOME! Several changes to these have been made over the years based on Consultants' requests. This year's event was originally scheduled to be a weekend retreat in Utah, but they are reorganizing to a virtual event, lowering the price and inviting everyone to participate! More info coming ASAP.
