The Right Perspective to Go Higher

I have a joke about perspective to tell you. A general and his young subordinate, as well as a Grandmother and her beautiful granddaughter, are riding in the same train cabin. The train goes through a tunnel, and we hear the sound of a kiss, followed immediately by a loud smack against a face. The […]

Fast is a Verb

Have you fasted recently? When was the last time you went a period of time without food or a specific thing? We’re not talking about forgetting to eat a breakfast or forgetting to check Instagram at night.

The Ultimate Sacrifice

As I recall my early childhood, I distinctly remember joining my classmates every morning as we said the Pledge of Allegiance.

Why Me?

Why Me? I’ll never forget growing up in a house with five kids.  If my mom would have collected a quarter every time someone said “why do I have to do it?” or “why can’t (insert sibling name) do it?”, she would never have to worry about money!  As we grow into adults, we find […]

New Year’s Revelation

New Year’s Revelation I’m the kind of person who prefers a clean plate for dessert. My husband doesn’t seem to mind if his piece of cake is swimming in remnants of spaghetti. I’d rather have a clean plate as well as a clean fork, even if it means doing a few extra dishes. To me, […]
