  1. Hi Amanda! I saw the article about you in today’s Free Press and am writing to ask you if I can rerun one of your blog pieces in my blog, Feed the Spirit (www.feedthespirit.info). It’s part of David Crumm’s weekly e-mag, Read the Spirit (www.readthe spirit.com). I will include a brief introduction and link back to your blog.
