It brought a peace I was not expecting. Who knew that a 6-hour financial class could bring years of peace? Not me. I wasn’t expecting that at all. After all, I was the one being dragged there by an eager spouse. I was convinced that a budget would never work after watching my parents try and fail numerous times growing up. But something needed to change, big time, so I went...

Throughout my life God has blessed me with strong mentors. Each has exercised influence in different ways, at different times and on different aspects of my life. Some have taught me about life, some have taught me how to treat others, some have helped me with my professional development, while others have taught me the simple joy of fly-fishing. Each have helped make me who I am. In some cases the...

When we serve others, something really cool happens. Something small, yet significant. Something that you don’t expect and really don’t get anywhere else.

It is different than any other...

My older brother, Seth, and I used to be very close. As young men we traveled the world and planned to be missionaries in Asia.

I once knew a little girl who grew up in a family where both parents were alcoholics, she was the baby of three girls, all 5 years apart. The parents moved their family across the country away from all family support and oversight, so they were in survival mode, and didn't make time to raise the girls. Their motto was, "children are to be seen and not heard". Frequently there was no money for food, and her parents were too proud to get the girls on a free, or reduced lunch rate at school. At the age of six...
