Secret to a Joy-Filled Life
I love to read! I think it’s the best way, not to mention the quickest way, to gain knowledge, understanding and wisdom. Many people read for different reasons; some for entertainment; some to gain an understanding of a subject they may not be well versed in; some for self-improvement; others for inspiration.

Juggling Through Life
Do you ever feel like you go through life juggling so many different things that it’s just a matter of time before you drop something; or in some case everything? We live in a world today where our schedules are so full of activities and obligations that sometimes we don’t know if we are coming […]
Do you ever find yourself conforming to those around you? Do you allow your actions, words, thoughts and decisions to be directed by what others might think? Do you get caught up in the concern of winning over the approval of others? I sure know I have; for a good portion of my life. […]
Balance! It’s what I decided would be the one word that would describe how I wanted to grow and improve my life in 2013. I entered into a 12-step program 142 days ago for compulsive eaters.

My challenge is for everyone that reads this to share the one thing they see has their biggest burden or stress to overcome. Our lives are filled with one stress after another, one worry, one problem, issues […]
The greatest illusion in this world is the illusion of separation; that we are independent of one another; that we do not share in the events of life. Nothing can be further from the truth. Everything that happens, even if it is on the other side of the earth, will eventually makes it impact on each of us. […]
The Living Word
Many have heard the bible, scripture, is the “living word”. As a young man I truly couldn’t wrap my head around that one; I mean it was pieces of paper. But as I have grown older and remain on a quest to seek the truth, I have come to understand exactly what is meant in […]
