Cha..Cha..Changes

Changes Crossroad Sign

2016 is a year to remember for ages to come. Donald Trump, the billionaire business man is running for the office of President of the United States of America and is currently leading the Republican party for the nomination. Hillary Clinton, who many believe unfit to lead, is in a tight race with Bernie Sanders, an older senator who is closer to a socialist than a democrat. This election cycle is sure to leave the United States with a President that is far different from anything this nation has ever seen in the past.

Regardless, each has been gifted by the Creator to be more than mere consumers during our time on Earth. We were created to shine, we were born to live, and we are responsible for using that gifting to bless, inspire, and encourage our world.

I know that I have been blessed to be able to communicate through my writing. Not that I am a great author, New York Times best-selling author, or even a published writer. Rather, I have been told by several people within my circle of friends that they believe it to be a gift. But, what happens when that ‘gift’ seems to be the hardest thing to come to terms with? Why does it have to be THAT talent? I wanted to be able to do something DIFFERENT……. Read more of this post

Defeat is only Temporary

LEAD Technologies Inc. V1.01How do you start? It’s the proverbial ‘knife in the back’. What are you supposed to say? How should I react? The thoughts  creeping into the furthest recesses of my mind, never ceasing to gnaw at my subconscious, telling me ‘maybe it’s true’, ‘maybe what’s being said is the reality’….
