Are We Not All Beggars?

Are we all not beggars? Chad Hymas goes homeless downtown in the the streets of Salt Lake City last Saturday afternoon. A couple weeks ago I heard a marvelous talk by Mr. Jeff R Holland. His words pierced me to the very core. While listening to his sermon, I thought to myself, “How often have

One More Day

The other day, I saw a commercial on television about children wanting “one more day” of vacation. It was a commercial advertising the benefits of having a particular credit card, but its message from the children was what really struck me: that many of us have yearly paid vacations, and, yet for whatever reason, we,

Selfishness vs. Selflessness

  Pope John Paul II said “The great danger for family life, in the midst of any society whose idols are pleasure, comfort, and independence, lies in the fact that people close their hearts and become selfish.” Selfishness has actually been defined as the number one enemy in a marriage, and quite possibly in life.

Building A Solid Foundation

Wouldn’t it be great to find the perfect person to spend the rest of your life with? Marrying the right person the first time would certainly eliminate the increase in the divorce rate in this country, which continues to climb.

Careful Communication

Each day presents us with new experiences and challenges. I find one of the greatest challenges I face each day is finding enough time to do the things I want to do – and need to do – whether it be at home or at work. I am sure most of you agree that some

Flying High

“Look Dad, you’re flying!” Those wonderful words spoken by my three-year-old son, Christian, while I struggled to regain my balance, inspired the theme of my speaking business: “Who needs legs, when you have wings?” Flights of fancy, I believe, are as important as real flight. Of course I will never really fly. That is impossible.

Blame Game

To regret the experience is to regret the lesson – because the lesson is inextricably contained in the experience. Too often when changes occur and our circumstances are not as we planned, we tend to focus on what we lost, what we’ve missed, what’s gone wrong, who is to blame, and “why me.” We are

Come What May

When a broken bone heals, it is stronger in that place than it was before the break. It is the same with mental or emotional injury and healing. You can become stronger than before the injury.That is the beauty of healing. That is the gift of injury. I struggle to breathe. I slip in and

Why You Need to Stop Pursuing Work-Life Balance

Work – Life Balance. As a baby boomer teen born to depression-era parents, I never heard that term once. Didn’t exist back then and, if it had, it would have never come out of my father’s mouth. Hard work was his life, and when he had a day off, he worked. To my dad and

Becoming Your Best Self

If I asked you if it were possible for you to get into the best shape of your life, we could agree that it is. If I asked you were it possible for you to become smarter than you’ve ever been, I think we could agree that you could work hard, study, learn, and practice
