Be present. We all know how it feels when the person we are talking to is distracted…Perhaps they are glancing at their phone or watch. This is another way that we need to be more like Jesus. He is always fully engaged when we talk to Him—when we desire to touch His heart in prayer. […]

As we enter the New Year, let’s be sure to count our blessings, naming them one by one. “It is only with gratitude that life becomes rich.”(Dietrich Bonhoeffer) “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”(Philippians 4:6) Keith MadisonSCORE International

Happy New Year! I have collected some Bible verses and thoughts that may help me to be a better employee, friend, father, son, brother, and husband this year and for years to come. Hopefully one or more will help you, as well, to be all that God created us to be. “Do to others as […]

If we look horizontally for people or things to satisfy us, we will have fleeting moments of happiness and peace. People, because all of us are flawed, will disappoint us eventually. Things will only give us pleasure for a short time. We should look vertically for lasting peace, wisdom, satisfaction and joy. Then, we will […]
