Permission Granted

Discover simple, soul-filling strategies to live with deeper authenticity and purpose.

by Melissa Camara Wilkins

Next Discussion: December 17 at 8:00 p.m. CDT

Each month we read a non-fiction selection and have a conversation connecting the ideas to scrapbooking. Discussion guides are free for all and posted at the beginning each month. Monthly chats take place in our member community, generally on the last Thursday of the month.

Because the chosen books are non-fiction, there are no spoilers. That means you are welcomed  to participate whether or not you finished (or even started) the book. Our fundamental question for the club is:

What can we take away from this month’s book that would add more joy or ease to our memory keeping experience?
