This morning while eating… Continue reading The Devil’s Roller Coaster??

The Passing of The Baton: The Legacy of Tom Moore

Sometimes heroes come in the form of men wearing iron suits. But more often than not they come in everyday clothes. And every once in a while they come in the athletic gear of a coach.

The Empty Chair. Finding Joy this Holiday Season

Finding joy in the holiday season can be tough. Sometimes, the joy isn't found as much as it's chosen. For some, holidays are a struggle because unforgiveness in the family still resides or the personality conflicts haven't been resolved. But for others, holidays are a reminder of loss. They magnify what or who is no… Continue reading The Empty Chair. Finding Joy this Holiday Season
