(At start of each month we will hopefully have new readers to our blog-e-zine. Just a few new words of welcome to our new readers and thanks to the regular ones should be made here updating them on why reading Espirational Happenings is important to them. Just a few friendly sentences should surfice.)

Who or What’s Espirational?

(First month we should give a brief purpose statement of who Espirational is and what we are trying to do with it. After first month a different person, object (mtn, flower, etc) should be featured as being espirational and why.)


Put it on your calendar. We’re having a month long celebration in June to celebrate months of preparation and building our new Website called All Things Espirational. In it we will have a new art gallery featuring Genie’s hand crafted fabric art which has been seen and sold in several venues across the country. A bookshelf with Bob and Genie’s books are available for you to read and/or purchase. A new blog-E-zine which you can have delivered to your email box FREE simply by following this site on the Word Press blog system. A toolbox filled with wonderful, positive and uplifting sites to help you in your spiritual journey. And much more!

There will be prizes and give-aways, special reduced prices in the Gallery, and others events not yet listed here. Come celebrate with us. It’s bound to be ESPIRATIONAL!
