We have just one important question for you..

Happy New Year!  Can you believe that it’s 2016?lens

In the days since the horror, you have possibly watched news reports, read articles and possibly a variety of other media going over the gory details of the attack itself. You may find yourself discussing the life and motivation of the terrorists themselves, and reading stories from the survivors and loved ones of the victims. Continue reading

Make your bed.

Yes, at the risk of triggering memories of irritating demands made by your parent or caregiver,  current demands if you’re a teenager, we are seriously suggesting that you make your bed.

And we have a really good reason for this suggestion. Continue reading

Are your beliefs slowly killing you?

“I’m just a giver”
