From the grief our guide in Israel expressed over the destruction of Jerusalem and Solomon’s temple you might think it occurred recently instead of in 70 AD. Yet after almost 2000 years, the Jews still have no temple. An Islamic shrine sits over its ruins. Our guide blamed human error for this travesty. If only a leader hadn’t delayed the armies going to Jerusalem.
His words show why we need to pray…Continue

Drawing or painting; doing arts and crafts; cross-stitch or needlepoint; dancing; singing; playing an instrument – do these activities have any impact on your health? You bet they do! Probably more than you even realize.
Maybe, like me, you have never considered yourself “artistic” because a young 3-year…Continue
One thing I’ve spent a lot of time talking with individual clients, schools and businesses about is setting goals. If that makes you sigh with frustration, I bet you’ve been required to meet a sales goal or a self improvement goal or something similar at work and you might be thinking,…Continue

Getting your things organized can feel overwhelming at times, especially when you are just starting out and don’t really know where to begin. When this is the case, sometimes it helps to just ignore the abundance of advice out there and just keep three things in mind when you are looking at an item and trying to decide what to do with it.
Your three goals should be:
People all over the country are contacting potential employers and finding jobs. Job seekers are finding better employment quicker than ever. You have lots of choices! If you want out of a …
If you find that you are not able to make your loan repayments in time, you should explore what you can do to lessen your financial damage before it becomes impossible to clean it up. If you don’t pay, you will be declared a defaulter and the total sum outstanding will zoom as to the interest, fees, and penalties accumulate. Your credit score will take a massive hit, and you may even need to file for bankruptcy. So, what are your options?
Make the Payment Late
If you are…Continue

Why are we able to take some challenges in stride and others level us? I’m not sure, but I know I’m more likely to stumble when emotions connected to past wounds are unleashed. Of course, my spiritual enemy is right there to magnify any offense.
I consider myself to be pretty resilient. But recently something small, very small, caused me to stumble. Actually, it was two small things on top of each…Continue

The education system in the US is a one-way ticket to the hamster wheel of loans. We get into the system thinking it is our way of a more prosperous life. Little do we know the loans that make college and university possible for us, take away our freedom of choice. Once we graduate, we have to start worrying about repaying the education loans rather than thinking about shaping our lives the way we want. Forget Euro trips and countryside treks; the education loans will always be there to…Continue

Typically we begin spring cleaning our homes in March or April, before Easter and Passover. The weather is beginning to be nice and we can at least occasionally open the windows and let the fresh, clean spring air in as we scrub and polish our homes.
As much as I dislike housecleaning (and anyone who knows me…Continue
Have you ever said, “I’ve been doing it this way too long to change”?
I recently decided to learn a new sport: pickle ball. I attended my first impromptu lesson at a pickle ball free play court last week. A visiting player and pickle ball instructor showed me the basics…Continue

One of my friends is a bit compulsive about any food presented to her.She often prefers any liquid foods to be a’la carte. Whether a gravy, sauce or type of condiment, she simply enjoys having those items on the side rather than on top or mixed in with her meal.
Many people prefer to start or even keep a business that way.
They are perhaps employed full or part-time as an employee and want to start a business but…Continue

Do you ever get a sense of discontentment in your life? You know there is something that isn’t quite what you want it to be, but you just can’t place your finger on it? Generally I find that when that happens to me, it’s the universe gently nudging me on towards a change. Now changes are never easy, and they can sometimes involve a lot of work to make it a positive experience. But change is also one of the only things we can guarantee will always happen in life, regardless of if we want…Continue
