My thought was that all of us who have a Grandpa John in some form in our lives. Her way of working with him is a good lesson for us to incorporate into our own lives. Highly recommend.

Cindy | 522 comments I think she got lots of her ideas from him on how to make do with what you have. His influence helped explain how she was able to run that amazing "Little Lights" program with no funding!
