One of the things I did for Jana’s birthday was to ask Liam and Duncan some questions about their mom. I got the idea from a recent Steven Furtick message when he shared a questionnaire his wife gave to his two sons about him.
A nice way to celebrate Jana’s birthday, and highlight how amazing she is. For context, Liam turns six years old this November, and Duncan just turned four years old.
