Harnessing Creativity

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,…

Sorry, but you really don't have an excuse!

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.
