Is That the Best Choice?

Is That the Best Choice?

I have a child who hates making decisions. He always looks at me for what he should do. Now that he is a teenager I am trying to force him to make more decisions. Stress comes on his face as he determines the best thing to do. One of the questions he asks me is “Is...

Silver Never Satisfies

Silver Never Satisfies

My wife and I watched Crazy Rich Asians the other day. The lavish lifestyles the wealthy live struck me as opulent but empty. I know its a movie and things can be exaggerated, but it was still eye-opening. What we need to remember is that even the most affluent people...

Understand the Gift

Understand the Gift

How many gifts have you received that you have stored away never to use again? The person who gave you the gift had the best of intentions, but it was so off the mark you didn’t know what to do with it. So you throw it in a closet only to regift or sell at a rummage...

Avoid the Drama

Avoid the Drama
