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. Keeping a marriage together these days takes a lot of hard work. It takes a

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.

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

The Price Of Integrity

Keeping them often proves more difficult because when we are pressured to strive always for perfection, we find it simpler to agree to undertake impossible tasks than to say no. Whenever you give your word to someone, you have to follow through on it. You have to keep your word, because

Attitude of Gratitude

Today, I am keenly aware of the fact that life is far better than I deserve. Which is saying something these days. The truth is the world is full of pain and suffering. Hardship and turmoil. Disappointment and regret. So the fact that I can be thankful (and mean it) today is, in its own
