Tia Gist CEO of Gemstones has selected Reading With Mackenzie as one of their projects to support! The support from this group has been amazing. Thank you so much for all you do! I don't care what you're striving to do in life, if you're obedient someone will always want to support you! My 9 year old has found her passion early in life and I'm honored that we can do this together with the help of organizations like Gemstones. We love you and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
