I once found myself in a personal crisis. It was one of those situations in which I exhausted all of my human resources, but nothing changed. After realizing there was nothing left for me to do, I was forced to give it all to God. I was amazed to see him work once I got out of the way.

Those things I wanted most, I’ve prayed and worked for the hardest – my educational goals, my work goals, my weight loss goals. And as a result, I’ve developed a greater love capacity to love.
I liken my […]

Generation Y-ers or Millennials are those born between 1977 and 1994. Often, they are referred to as the “selfish generation” and they make up approximately 25 percent of the U.S. population. Some would even say their selfishness pervades society, though like it or not they are the next generation of influencers and leaders.
Stanton Smith, author of “Decoding Generational Differences,” says with high expectation of others, “their attitudes can be characterized by a decrease in career ambition and more focus on personal pursuits.” Generation-Y kids seem to live their lives with one question in mind: “How can others serve me?” […]
