You Are Gifted

You Are Gifted

Have you ever felt like you didn’t have anything to offer, no talent to give? Or maybe you’ve felt like there’s nothing unique about you, nothing that makes you stand out? If so you’re in good company. It’s a common feeling – especially in a culture that seems to only celebrate what they feel is […]

You Are Gifted

Have you ever felt like you didn’t have anything to offer, no talent to give? Or maybe you’ve felt like there’s nothing unique about you, nothing that makes you stand out?

A transformed mind

Panic and obsession are two words that can easily describe most people. Something goes wrong and we instantly panic, break out in the cold sweats and then we obsess over it. We even obsess over something that went wrong in the past. No matter how hard we try we can’t seem to get these things […]

You’re not alone

You’re not alone

“The Lord himself will give you a sign. Look! The Virgin will conceive a child. She will give birth to a son and will call him Immanuel (which means ‘God with us’).” Isaiah 7:14 It’s hard to imagine that the Christmas season can be one of the loneliest times of the year. In fact there […]

Trending in the right direction

I’m sure when the first Ice Bucket Challenge was issued no one thought it would grow to be such a huge global trend. As of today the Ice Bucket Challenge has been issued to the likes of Michelle Obama, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Kermit the Frog, just to name a few. Even Laura Bush […]

Less is the new more

Can you remember what people gave you for Christmas last year? I don’t! I can’t even remember what gifts I gave my kids or wife last year. It’s not that I have a bad memory; I just don’t find my year old stuff to be as exciting as the new stuff. I’m sure you can […]

My friend

My friend

Did you know studies have shown that people with a large network of friends were more likely to outlive those without? It’s even been reported that both men and women who stated to be lonely in life were more likely to die sooner. In fact, our friendships not only affect our life span but the […]

Love and chocolate

Chocolate! What an amazing thing that is. It’s soft and sweet, it’s always there when you need it, and it’s yours unconditionally. I guess it’s so popular during the Valentine’s season because it reminds us of what real love should be like: unconditional. Chocolate and love are so closely knit in our minds that over […]

Picking teams

Picking teams

If I were a betting man, I would bet that most guys dreaded life when it came time to pick teams in school. Come to think of it, I don’t think I have ever talked with anyone who has fond memories of this horrid event. I guess the best way to describe it is “extremely […]
