Today, we are going to take a look at Sister Spolight’s past!  Way back when we began the Sister Spotlight, we did it a little differently than we do now.  We took nominations and then chose a spotlight.  The sister spotlighted did not get to then choose the next spotlight.  When we re-introduced the Sister […]
