Happy New Year!

I love the fresh start that January brings, the promise of a New Year, the best year ever.

Part of making the year the best ever is getting control of things and learning new habits. We have a list of places to help you donate items that need to leave your space. We have articles on healthy eating, refocusing for the second semester and goal setting. We also have some great cold-weather destinations if you want to see some snow and indulge in winter sports.

As we move into 2023, I am excited to look ahead at our editorial calendar and see subjects like education, family travel, camp and more. We would love to hear from you – let us know what subjects you would like us to cover for you and what you enjoy most. We are here to help you be better parents and to make your life a little easier! Email me at info@touchpointis.com and let me know what you think!

We are also looking for two parent volunteers to sit on our editorial advisory committee. We meet once a month on the second Wednesday at 2 p.m, on zoom. If you are a parent of an elementary student and would like to give your input to the magazine, please email me at info@touchpointis.com.

We have the best wishes for you and your family in 2023 and leave you with the following blessing:

Walk tall, walk well, walk safe, walk free

And may harm never come to thee.

Walk wise, walk good, walk proud, walk true

And may the sun always smile on you.

Walk prayer, walk hope, walk faith, walk light

And may peace always guide you right.

Walk joy, walk brave, walk love, walk strong

And may life always give you song.

All the Best,
