It’s All in the Mindset

  Photo from listverse.com       After my trip to Asia, I have been doing a lot of thinking. Through a series of events, I began to notice that people, who struggled in trying to live for Christ, had a mindset issue rather than a behavioral issue.

Problem of the Human Heart

  Photo by kean.edu       It has been interesting to read up on the cheating scandals of teachers from Atlanta to Philadelphia. It was reported that 178 principals in Atlanta were accused of cheating. Also, schools in Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington D.C. are under investigation.

Daddy & Daughter

  It has been interesting to see the reactions of my two boys and my daughter when I came back from my 5 week missions trip. Even though Josiah and Elliot were happy to have me back, the outward expression of Karissa has been different from the boys. Maybe this is why people say that there is a usually a special connection between a dad and his daughter. Often times I look at KiKi and...
