1. Purpose of Pain?

    Pain is our notification that we have lost something important in our lives. It could be a portion of our health or wellness, the loss of someone special, the job we always wanted, a relationship we neglected, a sporting event we had committed everything to, or even a reminder we have lost sight of …Read More

  2. Just Decide

    I was asked this week about what kind of courses I had taken to learn about leadership and coaching. While I do love learning, reading and following great people.

  8. Children, Challenges, and I Love You
