New Year New You

A new year means a new you, right?  Many have tried, but just because the calendar year changes doesn’t mean new things are coming your way, especially a new “you”.  No offense intended. It’s normal or wishful thinking to go into a new year thinking you can become a different …

The Love of Christmas

Have you ever tried to hate someone your child loves?  Or have you tried to hate someone your best friend loves?  Or anyone someone you love, loves? I thought about this many years ago when I tried to hate someone our daughter loves.  I tried to find every reason not …

Thanks-receiving

It’s the week of Thanksgiving, so Happy Thanksgiving! You won’t know the answer to this question, but that’s okay because I’m going to explain it in this web-post.   Question: Have you turned Thanks-giving into a day of thanks-receiving?   You’ve already received.

Don’t Make It Hard to Believe

This week we take a pause from our regularly scheduled content to insert a special post about Easter. Why isn’t believing in the resurrected-king easier? I had this thought as we were hanging out with our grand-child; I couldn’t help but notice the electrical outlets we have with the safety …

It’s Where God Wants You

Can you believe it’s thanksgiving again?  My family has been in major preparation trying to make this Thanksgiving the best ever.  We’re tired of having Thanksgiving the way we’ve always had it.  Not that there was anything wrong with the old tradition, but we feel that with our family changing …

Impossible to Ignore

Today, we take a pause from our normal blog topic which is centered around “The 16 Levels of Love.”  Today is Easter and since we’re Christians we wanted to do a special Easter post.  Actually we’ve written this post to non-Christians and at the same time we want to use …

Share Something New In 2017

As we bring 2016 to an end, I’m reminded that I’ve spent this entire year drafting the expanded version of When Ordinary is No Longer Enough.  You all have been a huge part of helping me create the best content for this book-an awesome feet.     Now I get to …
