Why I want to marry a Gold Digger
I have become renowned for being Single unfortunately. Most of my peers have been married for years and have several children. In 5 years I will be the same age as my grandmother when she first achieved that title. As you can imagine from friends and family alike I am constantly getting grilled and lectured over my solitary status. I have countless scouts that out of love and concern, diligently look underneath every rock and tree for a help mate to get me hitched to. Every time I speak somewhere in my introduction the host makes sure to comment, “By the way ladies...

Stepping Stones and Stumbling Blocks
Last week I had a very special experience. If I ever had any doubt in the law of attraction made famous by the Secret, it was gone after last week. A friend and I went to visit a mutual friend of ours that had recently got married and had moved into a nearby apartment complex. Shortly after we arrived we agreed that such a beautiful day shouldn’t be wasted and decided to go down to the complex pool. As I walked in I saw a man relaxing in the pool. As I got closer I realized that this man although normal in every other way, had no...

Introduction to "Raising You"
Alright kids after much deliberation, I have decided to post the introduction to the book I am writing. It is not Biographical although it may seem that way from the introduction. It is heavy and I hesitated posting it because it is only partially edited and very revealing. My biggest concern is that some of you may see me seeking pity as a motive. However there is no reason for pity. What you soon will read in my opinion has been the most valuable time of my life. I would change nothing. I have thanked and continue to thank the Lord for these experiances. I see them strictly as blessings and count myself fortunate for them. Furthermore...

Creating An Amazing Day.
"In the beginning God created the Heaven and the Earth." (Genesis 1:1) I think most of us have atleast a descent understanding on how the story goes in terms of creating the Earth. I think alot of us how ever skip over or at least don't pay much attention to the Creating Heaven part. Maybe it is because Heaven is so unfathomable that we are unable to comprehend it so rather than spend time on it we focus on what is a little easier to comprehend, the Earth. None the less, there it is. God actually took the time to create Heaven. I have never thought of Heaven actually being created in all its glory and splendor. God didn't just occupy it but created it. Why do I find that to be a big deal?

One of the most impactful things I have learned was from the Author Napoleon Hill. He has taught a great deal about thoughts being things and the more intensly we focus on the achievement of something the more "the law of attraction" works in our favor. To enhance this principal he recommended "Auto Suggestion" or vocally exclaiming what we want...
