The Secret Enemy of Change

There has been something I've been ashamed and scared to say out loud: I'm over-weight.

More than that, I have never been able to tell anyone how much I actually weigh. I hope by me getting over my pride that this will help someone: I weigh 333 pounds. It makes me cringe to even write that number!

Here the one silvering lining, I lost 6 pounds last week, Yeah!

Two years ago I weighed 332 pounds…

The Art of Emotion

I’ve always been told that art, of any kind (whether it be photography,

paintings, sculpture, architecture, etc) is generally designed to elicit some

sort of emotion in the observer.  This emotional response could be to call you to action, to bring you peace, to open

you to a new understanding or way of thinking/seeing the world, or to resonate

Thank You Lord, For Making Me Whole

I have the wonderful pleasure of building choirs in senior centers, adult day cares, group homes, or anywhere there are people who want to sing.  One of my clients is an adult day care.  I will admit, these people make me smile each and every time we are together.


I would like to tell you about one man in particular.  This young man is in his 30’s, I would guess, and he has touched my life in a way that I doubt I will soon forget.  When we first arrived at his adult day care…

How to Interview - the Process & Elevator Speech

Tina asked:

I applied for a job online at a really large company, got a missed call from someone from their HR department that If I am still interested in the position call her back. I am going to return her call. Should I be prepared for a phone interview? I mean, what is the process? do they usually call to schedule an interview or ask some human resources questions to see if you are a good candidate for them? If so, how well do they expect us to…

Let the "Good Times" Roll!

For me, my own life has strangely reached this echelon moment. I know how blessed I am and how lucky I feel to be exactly where I am- today. Not yesterday, or 30 years ago- today.

My wife was unexpectedly laid-off in June. Too make a long story short, despite the stress,…

Wash Up to Cuddle Up


wash I looked out the window and groaned. My sixty-six pound puppy, Max, had found the hose Larry had left running on his tomatoes. He was up to his elbows in mud. As much as I love Max, he would not be back inside until I washed off his feet and legs.

This reminded me of when…

Ability isn't enough. 3 ways to open more doors.

Chances are that you know someone who has great potential, but is struggling to find a job or move up where they’re at.  They may be extremely smart.  They may hold multiple degrees and certifications.  They may be very experienced. Yet they are coming up short.

I’ve seen it a lot working in Human Resources.  These are the people who have a nice resume.  They get some interviews or consideration for promotion, but in the end, the best opportunities seem to get…

Marketing Season

Marketing Season

     Here in America we are the best in the world in this category, marketing!  An American will see, hear, or be exposed somehow to 3000-4000 advertisements per day.  An American child will see as many as 40,000 television ads per year.  Marketers have trained us in this country to chase happiness with stuff, and it robs us of our money and peace because we are trained to get the latest and greatest product. 

China knows how to make money in…

He Was A Minister-She Was A Lawyer

My choir participants have been especially talkative this week.  It seems they had stories that needed to be told, and I was happy to stop and listen.

We all like to tell stories when we have an audience that is engaged.  It is my pleasure to be that “engaged audience” for my senior citizen friends.  It amazes me the life these folks have led.  Even though I know better, I sometimes forget the person I see is not the person they were 20, 30, 40, or even 50 years ago.  These folks…

All We Need is Love

Much study has been done and continues to be done on the connection of the mind and the body.  Scripture tells us “as a man thinks, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7) and science continues to verify this truth.  Every thought and emotion we have produces specific energy and vibration that impacts the chemistry of our physical…
