The well crafted quotes and the wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King graced social media yesterday. But equality, fairness and loving one another are not accomplished if pondered only one day each year.

One of the challenges in my life has been “worry.” God has definitely helped me in grow this area, but worry still rears it’s ugly head occasionally.

Many people have a tendency to try to separate their spiritual life from their professional life. In reality, we would be far better professionally if we invited God to be center of all we do. If we can embrace this concept, there will be more fairness, less selfishness, more efficiency and even more joy in […]

Many have made resolutions for this New Year and most are struggling to keep pace with your personal promises. Rick Warren has said, “Your choices control your calendar a lot more than your circumstances do.” If your motives are good, then bring your resolutions to God in the form of prayer. “You do not have, […]
