All human choices are subjective (rational), not necessarily economic or ethical. Humans make choices subjectively - based on the limited knowledge available - as only each and every person can and therefore as each and every one does.
The choices may or may not be regarded as ‘economic’ or ‘ethical’ and this is very…Continue

The book was fantastic, but no one was going to read it. Not, at least, in its current state. The author had packed his* manuscript with helpful information and practical advice. The content and his message had real potential to help his audience. But only the most dedicated readers would push past the stale opening line.
Most chapters either dove…Continue
“Hardships often prepare ordinary people for an extraordinary destiny” C.S. Lewis
Let’s see, since the last glimpse into our lives we have moved and have been working non-stop to bring our new home into “safe” and “functional” status. We have celebrated Matthew’s 13th and Sarah Anne’s 5th birthdays. We have participated in 2 county fairs (with one more to go). We just finished an illness outbreak in our home with Isaac lingering the…Continue

Saving money at the grocery store is one great way to use your money more efficiently. Most experts (me included) recommend that your food budget should be between 5-15% of your take home pay. This includes groceries and eating out combined.
I have married over 600 people. No, I am not a polygamist and no, I don't run a chapel in Las Vegas. I am a minister and I have just married a lot of people.
When I first started out I wrote the entire ceremony down and delivered it word-perfect. This was a huge day for the couple. They had spent a…Continue
We have all had writer’s block at some point. What turns into a five minute break to clear the head quickly evolves into an hour long net surfing experience. However, it does not have to be that way anymore. We understand how the brain works; so why not use it to your advantage? Take care of your analytical writing early in the day. Then, once you begin to drift away during the afternoon siesta hour,…Continue
“New Study Claims Vitamins Cause Cancer”
That was a recent headline and as soon as I saw it and heard it on the news I knew it had to be flawed. Whenever I see new study results I always wait to see who funded the study and whether it was truly a carefully done study.…Continue
I’m all for excellence. But perfectionism is an entirely different animal. We live in an imperfect world. Constantly chasing perfection is an enormous waste of time. Perfectionism robs you of precious time. Time is what life is made…Continue

“When you have exhausted all possibilities, remember this, you haven’t.”
As you might already know, my husband and I went to Israel this past year and so much of my perspective on life has changed. I feel I might be in the middle of another spiritual crisis as I’m reliving my time in Israel walking the same land Jesus did while here on Earth.
Jesus was human; He was fully…Continue

I don’t know about you, but my favorite way to pray is upside down.…
The fact that humans are subjective – make decisions subjectively and value things subjectively – implies that each human has limited knowledge and based on this limited knowledge decisions are made and things are given valuation. This is why education is highly prized, because it increases the scope of knowledge and it provides the skills and tools for processing knowledge.
Built into human…Continue

Make her an ashtray.
I’m not actually encouraging you to make an ashtray or to give your mother a gift that would kill her. Let me explain.
When I was eight years old my father told me (along with my sisters) that for Mother’s Day he was going to buy flowers for my mother from all…Continue
I ran across a great quote recently, quite possibly the best quote I've ever read. Like all great quotes the message it conveys is clear, concise, poignant, illustrative, brilliantly illuminating and true. I would also add poetic. It is by all measures, both a literary and philosophical…Continue
Whether running your own business or forging a new path in a field yet untested in the market, becoming your own boss is every bit rewarding as it is terrifying. Instead of sticking to a typical 9 to 5 with benefits, you have to balance your own books. It is just you and your dreams.
