After 21+ years with the same company, I was told last Friday morning that more cuts were necessary and that I no longer had a job. I was surprised, but not shocked. I thought that our IT group had already cut all the staff we could afford to, while still providing adequate service to the business. I was the IT Applications Manager, and my application development team had already been reduced from a high of 24 people down to 11. And last month my boss was let go as well.
While I'm… Continue

Do You Love Money?
We should seek to be "free from the love of money" and not "fond of sordid gain" (1 Timothy 3:3, 8 nasb). God wants us to love people and use things. Too often we use people and love things. We do not own the things we cannot give away--they own us. To minimize the chances of falling in love with money, a faith-based investment plan is critical. Setting up such a plan consists of four key… Continue

Three of these kids belong together
Three of these kids are kind of the same
But one of these kids is doing his own thing
It's time to play our game
These are the lyrics to one of the songs on my favorite childhood television show, Sesame Street. While working in Augusta, GA a coworker once said to me, "You seem more the type to create molds rather than filling them." Her words came as no surprise to me. I've known that about myself for much of my life.

I have been curious about online businesses and have done some research and bought a book. I know that it would be expensive to start a product business online and I really do not know much about or feel good about affiliate programs. it seems one could be limited to what they could offer with such a program also and shouldn't what you offer be unique? I read that being an online information Entreprenuer is pretty good although one has to know something about the subject. I also heard there are… Continue

The Associated Press released a story recently about the growing tendency of young adults to disengage from the news. The Pew Research Center conducted a survey in 2006 which indicated that 27 percent of Americans age 18 to 29 hadn't gotten news the day before from any source, including newspapers, television, radio, or the Internet.
In explaining their disconnect, some of the respondents spoke of weariness with the sheer volume of news that is available, lack of time, lack of… Continue

So I need someone. I need a partner. I don't think 48 days was set up like a "dating service"… Continue

Since my daughter was very young my wife and I have been setting goals for her. They were often small goals that for most people are just milestones like, rolling over, sitting up, crawling, climbing, walking, etcetera. Sometimes we would consciously sit down and set goals and others were just recognized as needing to be achieved. At some point I began becoming a student of self improvement and began to understand the importance of goals. Once I understood the importance of goals and my… Continue

"Bye-bye, Miss American pie.
Drove my Chevy to the levee,
But the levee was dry.
And them good old boys were drinking whiskey and rye"
Singing, this'll be the day my passion dies
This'll be the day that my passion dies
I changed the lyrics a bit there, but it is so true! So many are letting their passion die! They are staying trapped in the box, playing by rules that corporations and the world say you have to play by. Play it safe,… Continue

George Barna is one of America’s leading pollsters in matters of religion and morality. In 2004 he measured how
many people hold a biblical worldview based on the following questions:
1. Do absolute moral truths exist?
2. Is absolute truth defined by the Bible?
3. Did Jesus Christ live a sinless life?
4. Is God the all-powerful and all-knowing Creator of the universe, and does… Continue

They are the difference between average people and top

How many things have you touched today? The snooze button on your alarm clock. Your robe. The shower faucet. Your toothbrush. The toilet flusher thingy. Your coffee cup. Your car door and steering wheel. Your keyboard. Your cell phone. Your fingers touch something thousands of times every day, and at the end of the day you can probably only remember a tiny fraction of them. Here's the interesting part. Every single time you touch something, you leave a part of you behind. Your fingerprints are… Continue

We try and mentally squint our eyes to see into the future of our children in ways that will help us to shepherd them into the right decisions. And I wonder if at times we’re looking for the wrong milepost along the way.
Maybe we ‘think’ our child is bright and therefore they should focus their area of study in the sciences so they can become a doctor?
Or perhaps it’s the genetic link. Well if Granddad was a stock broker and your Dad is a stock broker, odds are dear child… Continue

"The only difference between you now and you in 5 years' time, will be the books your read and the people you meet."
--Charlie "Tremendous" Jones
I read, constantly. I don't read garbage either. If I am going to invest my money and even more importantly, my time, into a book, I am going to make sure that I can grow and improve from it. In other words, I want to get something from it. The challenge is weeding through the overwhelming pile of books that may, or may not be… Continue

I saw this posted on a church sign today while driving through the Rutherford County countryside, and felt compelled to share the wisdom. How many times have you seen the bumper sticker, "God Is My Co-Pilot," and thought, "God wouldn't be riding with you with the way you are driving!" But how many times in our lives have we behaved as though WE were in control, and God was only there as our safety measure? How much different could our lives be if we allowed God to have complete control? How can… Continue
