Questions Worth Asking #12 Getting Enough Sleep

Are you getting enough sleep? How much is enough?

When a person is disciplined in one area, it often translates to other parts of life. Discipline in exercise often results in healthier eating choices. Who wants to chase a hard workout with a donut?

Why Give Christmas Presents?

Why Give Christmas Presents?

There’s nothing quite as ugly as a kid who doesn’t like his Christmas gift…and who lets the world know it. Ours is a very privileged culture, and we’re pretty familiar with this sort of attitude. But I don’t believe that the idea is to make others suffer for the selfish attitudes of a few.
