The comedy “He’s Just Not That into You” reminded me of the painful reality of how many women have been hurt by men I call “bozo” guys. I asked a single gal the other day what she thought of the movie, and she said, it was “good but painful.” She went on to say that […]

“Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor. For, if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion.

Be anxious for nothing, not even the economy

Many people today find themselves wondering, “Why should I stay positive when we are in the midst of a serious financial crisis, and people are losing their homes and jobs?

An Easter basket that could save your marriage

Spring is busting out all over! Well, maybe not all over, but at least in the grocery story candy aisle. Have you already bought some goodies for your family’s Easter baskets? My family loves the peanut butter and chocolate eggs and, of course, the tiny jelly beans. And what about your spouse? Do you ever […]

We all need a Savior, so be ready to share the Gospel

Recently, I attended the Asian Culture Festival held every March in Homestead. Fascinated by the earthy and rustic beauty of Asian dance and apparel, I enjoyed watching various performers reenact dances, marshal arts drills and songs commemorating their Asian heritage. I even sampled some of their native cuisine, including some sweet Thai iced tea that […]
