Got a question for you…

My publisher is starting to work on its marketing campaign for my forthcoming book (release date: early 2014!), and they’re curious about one thing—Simple Mom readers’ view of religion and faith. Would you kindly take this quick, anonymous ten-question survey for them? I’d sure appreciate it. (If you’re reading via email or RSS reader, click over to the blog to see the survey. You can also head to the survey directly here.)
