Cheating in the Game of Life

As much as I love football, you can imagine my disappointment that this Sunday is the Super Bowl – A.K.A. THE LAST GAME UNTIL NEXT SEASON!  And the 2015 season doesn’t start until September 10th…whatever am I going to watch on TV?!?!?! Boo….

The Bible

Lately, my church has been doing a sermon series called, Fully Alive in Christ.  It’s been interesting, informational and downright eye-opening.  Love it when that happens!!!

Reducing Regret

As with every start of a new year, I am contemplating the many things I would like to do, change, try and/or stop.  My list is long and quite overwhelming, but it does speak volumes of my Personal Character Inventory & Action Plan. Yes, I have my very own acronym that I JUST made up!!! […]
