Why My New Year's Resolution is to Write More and Post Less

Why My New Year's Resolution is to Write More and Post Less

This year, I decided to go about a different type of New Year’s resolution than my typical ‘study more,’ ‘go to bed earlier,’ or ‘eat healthier,’ etc. Instead, I decided to begin writing in a journal instead of posting on my social media accounts. My ideology behind this resolution is that by doing this, I will only be writing for myself and not to impress an audience. I would be bettering myself by becoming more in touch with my own life rather than entertaining others with my life.

A Plan for the New Year

A Plan for the New Year

Got a New Year’s resolution? Most people I’ve talked to don’t want to make a resolution for fear of not being able to keep it. I’ve decided to make it a “New Year’s plan” instead. I heard a great sermon on New Year’s Day that I’ve added as a reminder to my New Year’s “plan.” The message reminded us of “…the mystery that has been kept hidden for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the Lord’s people. To them, God has chosen to make known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.” - Colossians 1:26-27.

5 Things Every Employee Should Consider Before Taking a Job

Nailing a job offer is more than half the battle won, so congratulations! However, taking a job is a major decision and you do need to make sure there are no regrets or feelings of “employee’s remorse”, if it can be called that. Here are five things every employee needs to consider before accepting a job offer:

Youth Services System's Winter Freeze Shelter

Happy New Year! I hope that everyone had a blessed holiday season, full of warmth, generosity and appreciation for the many wonderful blessings most of us get to enjoy. For those of you looking for opportunities to continue the giving spirit this winter, Youth Services Systems’ Winter Freeze Shelter may be just what you’re looking for.

The Happiest Place on Earth

The Happiest Place on Earth

I recently joined my daughter and her family on a pre-Christmas vacation to Walt Disney World in sunny Orlando, Fla. I had never been to Disney during the Christmas season and it was such a treat. I love living in an area that enjoys four distinct seasons, but there is something to be said about palm trees and 70 degree weather in December. Everywhere we looked was beautifully decorated with thousands of live poinsettias, pine and big red bows. Our resort even had a life-sized gingerbread house! The air was filled with the anticipation of Christmas, that special feeling before Christmas Day.

Airplane Snacks

No one can count on getting food on an airplane these days. Even if you are on one of the rare flights where food is served, it is often inedible. I have been stuck on runways for hours, left in airports late at night when all the concessions are closed and just bored on flights. My new rule is not to get on a plane without snacks.

The Angels Of Christmas

The Angels Of Christmas

Have you ever considered the part that angels played in the Christmas story? Angels, you see, are more than ornaments to hang on a tree or pictures for our children to color. Those things are reminders to us that God worked through angels to make the Christmas story a reality. I want you to get to know four of these Christmas angels.

The Red Kettle

We’ve all seen them this time of year---those bell ringers standing outside local department stores next to their red kettle. Those people ringing the bell are volunteers for The Salvation Army. As most of you know, The Salvation Army is an organization whose mission is to aid families and individuals in their time of need—whether it is by providing food to the hungry, shelter to the homeless or any number of other charitable acts. Have you ever wondered how that red kettle came to be part of their campaign?
