In today’s economy finding a job is a blessing, finding a job that is rewarding & fulfilling would be amazing. Let’s imagine for a moment that you actually have such a job available, it is your responsibility to fill this job opening. So you do your due diligence and...
Social media is a huge blessing. I have not been shy about praising social media platforms like Facebook and Pinterest and also smartphones themselves, which are our primary portal to social media. Many aspects of social media provide us with the opportunity to be better friends, better citizens, better humans. And...
Gordon Spykman said, “Nothing matters but the kingdom. But because of the kingdom, everything matters.” Jesus taught us to pray that his kingdom would come, which essentially means that God’s will be “done on earth as it is in heaven.” Too many Christians spend their lives building their own kingdoms....
