From the Front Porch

Believe it or not, we're only two weeks into the new year. It's a time when many of us make new resolutions and restart aspects of our lives with fresh eyes and a fresh heart. This week on the show, Chris and Annie talk about all the things "fresh start" might mean--and all the books to help yours.

Also, as with last week, we accidentally recorded with a built-in laptop microphone, so please excuse our audio quality!
