My favorite ginger cookie recipe
It’s that time of year again! Whenever the weather starts to change, I’m in the mood to bake these cookies. People have asked for the recipe so many times over the years, I thought I’d share it with you below.
Also, a quick note to let you know that the last session of Online Psychic Development for Beginners in 2020 starts tomorrow morning, September 14, 2020. It’s such a fun class, and now that everyone is Zooming, it’s a whole new vibe. Many people have taken this class as a refresher, and now that we’re meeting by Zoom, we can actually see each other face to face! I’d love to see you there.
Psychic Development for Beginners
Over the past 10 years, I’ve taught thousands of people on 6 continents through this online class. What I always tell people is that when the inner voice gives us guidance, it’s always going to be for our highest good – and it’s always going to bring you more joy than you think.
