On what it means to succeed and be happy

Friday, September 16th, 2016
Children receive a lot of input about what it will take to succeed and be happy. How can we communicate the truth that will help them realize their own potential?

Teaching tech-savvy youth about who is in control

Saturday, August 27th, 2016
So while I understand people are not receptive to religious dogma, and I am not a theologian, the freedom to worship, or not worship God is central to this civil liberty of our free society. It is freedom of religion, not freedom from religion that makes individual liberty possible. (See Dale Carnegie’s book, How to Stop Worrying and Start Living, 1944). God does not make us worship him. It is a choice granted by Him. This free will also gives us and our children the realization that we can think for ourselves and improve our own lots (one family, neighborhood, and community at a time) because God’s grace is endless and His mercy is abundant for those who fix their minds on even just one mustard seed of faith.

How families are made on purpose, for a purpose

Thursday, August 25th, 2016

Defending love in the social network

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

Aim for the bulls eyeThank you God that it is by your grace and your faith we can choose to become citizens of heaven now and overcome all undue influences in the world with holy confidence. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Faith is a touchy subject, so we don’t talk about what we believe about God and personal power. And yet we know when you stand for nothing, you fall for anything – especially in the social network.

My faith informs me that to become holy is to care about what God cares about first and foremost and then to not allow the priorities of the world influence my desires because then I can easily deceive myself that what I want is what God wants. God wants every human being to be a part of His Holy Family, which is the Kingdom of heaven forged by a spirit of adoption through faith. In …

Cyber-safe thinking

Monday, August 15th, 2016
My faith teaches me that the only way to gain understanding is to experience life with a heart full of gratitude to God for my own intellect and free will. This is my capacity to learn how to love and be loved fearlessly, as God does. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Aim for the bulls eyeWe will not allow ourselves to be unlike ourselves. All of us have the potential to be better. However, when you see yourself as only so good, even though you have the potential to be much better, your creative subconscious always brings you back to the level of where you believe yourself to be (remember that’s its job). If you are absolutely certain that something is going to be really difficult, you will make it …

By my faith I know that something is only true if I allow it be so in my own mind. For I know that the only free society on the planet emanated from acting on one mustard seed of faith that God grants every human being intelligent life and free will. This is power that can never be taken, but is easily surrendered. This is the hope for all generations. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

My two cents 08-04-16

Thursday, August 4th, 2016

Shame_kills_communication_2My faith tells me that the gift of intelligent life and free will requires me to carefully examine my thoughts, because that is where pride starts: in a lofty thought which may be subtle and reinforced by society. Being successful in the culture of man, does not begin with seeking and doing the will of God. So in this cyber-powered society, I pray for wisdom in all things, so that my path is in alignment
