Goal Setting Time

As we get ready to ring in a new year, it is a great time to celebrate and reflect on all the good things of this past year. And even more importantly, it is the perfect time for us to start thinking about how we want this next year to be different and set some

Look Inside the Golden Cup!

Things are not always as they seem. A house that is freshly painted might look great on the outside, but might be rotting away and infested once you get behind the paint. The same holds true with people. They may look great, be successful by earthly standards, and have all kinds of money and fame.

Patience and Endurance

Sometimes life brings us very difficult challenges. During these times we are not sure exactly what we are going to do. We can become so frustrated that we can barely think straight, we can’t stop crying, and we can barely breath. We face death of those who we love. We face disappointment by people who

It is certainly fun to sit around and talk about fun memories from time to time. It is especially nice during the holidays to remember and cherish times spent with family. But as we get older, our bodies don’t work like they used to. We may not be able to run as fast or long,

Doubting Thomas

A “doubting Thomas” is the name we give to someone who has a tendency to doubt everything. There could be strong evidence for something, but this type of person refuses to believe. We all probably know someone like this, and they play an important part in our decision making and faith building process. If they

Jesus Prayed For You!

Legacy. It takes planning. It take hard work. It takes sacrifice. It takes prayer. In the business world it is known as level 5 leadership, recognized as the pinnacle of leadership when you are able to reproduce results without you even being there. It is the ultimate test of leadership. What it requires is nothing

Christianity and Love

In its most basic form, Christianity is all about love. The bible tells us about the love of God for us, and provides a model of how we are to love each other. All throughout Jesus’s life he told us and showed us how to love. And as Christians, we know the secret to this
