Successful Independence

Successful Independence

I recently had a wonderful weekend away with my youngest son, and we had fun learning different aspects of becoming a man. One of the lessons had to do with some tips on becoming successfully independent from his parents. Interestingly enough, this lesson could be applicable in other areas of life.   We heard two stories-one illustrated independence that was not successful; the other was. Following are brief summaries of the stories:   The first story was about a young man who hiked into a wilderness area in Alaska, by himself, with...

Leadership within the Family

Posted by on 2:52 pm

Practical Tips for Leadership within the Family   Each year, I pray and ask God for His direction for my life for the upcoming year. This year, I received from God something that He didn’t clearly define at the time, however, I am learning more and more about this as the year progresses. The impression that I received was that I was to LEAD. I shared this with my family on January 1, and today, on May 29, the day that I am writing this, I have learned some practical tips for leadership within the context of family that I’d like to share with...

Name That Emotion!

Posted by on 5:25 am

Name That Tune Emotion! Sometimes, it’s just difficult to say what you feel.   Years ago, there was a television game show called, “Name That Tune”. Contestants were challenged to name a song when presented with only a few notes from the song. Many were unable to name the song because there were not enough notes to guess the song.

Even when that Dr. Philish question, “How does that make you feel?” is asked, some answer with a mask or...

Tears in My Eyes: Human Trafficking

Posted by on 9:54 pm

I am passionate about people; which is why I do what I do. But I am also passionate about being involved and making a difference in the world around me. Human Trafficking: I teared up when I first heard a woman from Australia speak on the problem of human trafficking. I told myself, “I have to do something” to help these innocent kids that are being sold into slavery. It was hard not to feel completely overwhelmed and think it’s to big, or that I can’t make a difference. That is simply not true. The problem is complex and pervasive, and yes...
