May 2020 Books

The books I’ve put out on display for May reflect what we love to celebrate in May. This month is always a celebration of our mothers and grandmothers and all other women who have nurtured us and impacted our lives for good. It’s also a time for graduations and other celebratory moments. This year we had Nate graduate from BYU! We are SO proud of him!
