Do You Volunteer?

I think this verse about sums up how I feel with regard to people, no matter what their background or circumstances: 1st Peter 4:10 – God has given each of you some special abilities; be sure to use them to help each other, passing on to others God’s many kinds of blessings. As a result, […]

Train Your Brain Daily

Since we’re all getting a little older and want to be wiser, we need to keep training our brain. Every day we should try to learn one new thing. Doesn’t have to be anything big, even a new word (Scrabble players take note). Then we need to remember what we learned. That’s the hard part, […]
