5 Ways Your Child Will Benefit From Martial Arts

Posted: December 24, 2014

These days, martial art programs for kids are more important than ever. While organized sports are beneficial too, not every child will have the interest or talent to succeed and thrive in them. 


Making Weight Loss Predictable

Posted: December 19, 2014

With the New Year on its way, many will be wanting to lose a few pounds come January. So here’s how to do it. Are you ready? You have to watch what you eat, and be active every day.

I know, you were expecting a more sophisticated plan. But in the end, it’s not rocket science. The math is actually pretty simple.

If you eat more than you need, the excess is stored as fat and you gain weight. But if you burn more than you’ve consumed, you’ll have a “calorie deficit.” This is a good thing. The extra energy you need will come from fat, and you’ll start to lose weight.

The 4 D’s of Success

Posted: December 19, 2014

I’ve watched a lot of people over the years. Part of my job description has always involved observing others. Some have had some wild successes, but others have struggled and failed. I’ve done both myself a few times.    Last week, I talked about how looking back can help you get ahead.

The Gift of Life

The Christmas season always gets me thinking about babies. You know, Baby Jesus and “Away in the Manger.” We’ve also been looking at baby pictures with my son Michael. He’s far from perfect, but he did play Baby Jesus four years ago! Both were precious, and in their own ways, amazing too.

  I’ve been pretty pro-life for years. But there’s one more thing that cinched it for me. I was a baby too. Not just a baby, but an adopted one, from birth. You see, my natural mother was in trouble when she found out she was pregnant, over fifty years ago. 

Look Back To Get Ahead in 2015

Posted: December 09, 2014

As the New Year approaches, it’s always good to take a few minutes and review the current one, before moving forward. You can learn a lot by looking back. While we shouldn’t cling to the past, there’s something to be said for trying to figure out where you are and how you got there.    So how did you do this year? Did you start 2014 with some specific goals? Maybe you had some that continued over from the previous years? Did you stick with them, or did you fall short somewhere?
