Blast From the Past! Staying the Course: Keeping Your Business Vision

“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Proverbs 29:18 Indulge me as I apply this verse outside the normal interpretation and to an aspect of home business. In the biblical sense, it applies to a people who without God’s Word will decay morally. However, the statement itself can apply on a micro level by […]

Blast From the Past! A is for Art – Favorite Child-Friendly Art Resources

According to Chef Ramsey if I want to be a real chef then I better know how to make a killer Risotto.  Well, considering I have never eaten a risotto, seen a risotto in person, or am not sure what even goes into a risotto….I better get on the ball.  Remember, I’m a foodie wannabe, […]

Healing Done Well

Surgery! That isn’t a word any of us really want to hear. It is a little scary when you need surgery for any reason, even if it is minor. Thoughts of complications, not waking up, and more, may go through your mind and send chills through your body. No one wants surgery, even if you […]

Relax!

The other day my wife was talking to…let’s just say “another homeschooler.” The conversation revolved around college and the plans she had for her soon-to-graduate child. My wife summed up the woman’s attitude toward steering her child in the college direction as…well…OBSESSED. She was bound and determined to get this kid into a specific college […]
