What Does Your Portfolio Look Like?

We all make decisions in life about what we will invest our time, talents, treasures – ourselves – in. We need to choose wisely. Luke 12: 15 says, “Life is not measured by how much you own.” That statement can apply to money, possessions, or material goods in general. As for me, I spent my […]

“What a jerk! How can someone do this to me? Sorry, I’m just venting, I’m really mad right now at this [fill in the blank].” Many people lobby that venting anger through explosive language and aggressive actions is a healthy way to cope with a situation, but there is a real danger in giving in […]
