Useful articles which covers Biblical principles for a better christian life.

Stop, take a deep breath.

Reflect on how the hand of God is working in your life. God is always working in your life, even when it feels like a time of silence. God loves and cares for you. The gracious hand of God is on you. 

Pastor Scott teaches today’s message from Nehemiah ch 3.  Word by Word he goes through the chapter and applies insights that you will be able to incorporate into your daily life. You will learn about the rebuilding of gates, how God loves all his people, and how God uses the family.

Imagine the most selfish, negative and bitter person you know. Most of us can easily identify someone.  Can you identify any of these undesirable traits in yourself? Have you ever had a poor, destructive attitude?

How would God want us as Christians to act?

Pastor Scott teaches about different life attitudes in today’s, insightful sermon. Our journey through Nehemiah continues (Ch2 11-20).  While listening to this message you will learn about four positive ways Nehemiah faces challenges. He has an attitude we can all learn from.

You will learn about the attitudes of rest, evaluation, communication, and perseverance. You will want to evaluate your attitudes and relationship with God. Practical applications are given through out this message

This week you will face opposition; are you ready? How do you handle the opposition? Do you take it personally or plan revenge?

God wants us to do neither. As Christians we have different ways of handling our daily struggles.

Today you will learn, from Pastor Scott’s teachings, how God equips us to deal with opposition. Continuing our study of Nehemiah we look at two different people and how they opposed Nehemiah. Pastor Scott gives practical ways you can handle confrontation. You will learn the difference between carnal desires and Godly desires.  God has equipped us all with the Holy Spirit, so we can all do what is right.

God knows your struggles and through trusting Him we can meet our challenges with confidence.

How do you define success? By your accomplishments or by attaining your goals? Success should not be outcome based. The best way to measure achievement is by asking and being able to say YES to the following question: Am I doing what God wants to me to do today? 

We need to measures ourselves compared to God’s standards not the world’s standards. Pastor Scott teaches us in today’s message what characteristics define Nehemiah (Neh. 2:1-10).  These are traits we can all practice and achieve. Among them are patience, overcoming fear, being willing to share your heart, planning and being dependent on God. Through the example of Nehemiah, you will discover strategies to develop these personality traits.  You will learn how to acquire confidence, overcome your fears, and how to wait on God’s timing.

Remember life is not in the destination but in the journey.


Vulnerability: It is the birthplace of courage; the entrance to a spiritual breakthrough. So many of us are afraid to share our hidden secrets and shame with others. We are afraid of being judged, being the only one to fail, or being different. Nehemiah’s prayer in ch. 1 vs. 4-11 is a good example of going to God, humbly sharing his inadequacies, and taking responsibility.

In today’s powerful message Pastor Scott shows us how taking responsibility can change your life. You will learn how to take responsibility, how not to have a victim mentality, and how to embrace humility. The difference between shame and guilt are explained. You will feel empowered and encouraged after listening to this sermon.

The Old Testament is full of treasures. Some people do not enjoy these books because they feel that the God of the Old Testament is a God of anger and vengeance. When you read the Old Testament more closely you will find the same loving God as in the New Testament. You will also find adventure, love stories and examples of God love for us.  All Christians should read and learn of these amazing books.

Pastor Scott share reasons why we should all fall in love with the Old Testament. In these books you will be shown how all roads lead to Christ, you will get to know Gods character better, and gain perspective on Gods purpose for the world. As a result of understanding and loving these books your faith and knowledge of God will grow!

Nehemiah. A cupbearer for the king. A man who lived in relative comfort and luxury. But was he serving God with his whole heart? Are you serving God with your whole heart? Nehemiah traded his wordly comforts to follow the Lord. Through his work God helps restore a broken nation. God wants to restore your brokenness.

Pastor Scott starts with the first chapter of Nehemiah. We begin by learning about God’s promise and prophecies. We see how slowly wickednesses and false idols can take over a person’s and a nation’s heart. Pasted Scott shows us a map to better understand where this was happening. The good news from this lesson is you will learn how God uses others to restore the heart of a nation, your heart. This sermon will leave you wanting to learn more about Nehemiah and how God works through him.

Solutions are often ten feet away from us! When faced with adversity it can be hard to see solutions. Jesus says, “follow me.” Jesus shows us solutions when the time is right. Listen to this powerful message if you want to learn how Jesus takes you as you are and moves you to where you need to be. 

Pastor Scott finishes up the book of John and teaches us about Jesus and the Miraculous catch of fish. You will learn how God works in large groups and individually.  The difference between fairness and equality is explored. Jesus is doing work all around us all the time. Through out this message you will be shown how to identify the miraculous gifts God provides us all. 

Thomas couldn’t imagine that Jesus was alive. But Jesus had come into the locked room and revealed himself. Too often we lock up our lives with self protection and control that we can’t imagine Jesus doing something big. In the same way that the disciples experienced Jesus in the midst of their secure world, we can see Jesus in our own lives. He wants to knock down the walls and free us to experience his power. Imagination is the first step toward faith. We have to imagine that things could be different.

Because God is able to do more than we can ask or imagine, it’s clear that we might not be able to envision the vastness of God’s plan for our lives. So the imagination gets things started. We must imagine that things could be different so that we can free up ourselves to respond to God’s grace. The last verses of the passage reveal that there is a special blessing awaiting for those who believe. This is a powerful passage of scripture and Pastor Scott inspires us to bigger and better things in our own lives.

Should you follow Jesus or the crowd? Are we saved by salvation or through good works? It’s a decision we all have to make. In this world of false idols there are so many opinions and distractions that can take us further and further away from Jesus. As Christians we believe “Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6).

Brother Tim teaches us today about the third chapter of Galatians. In this book Paul is arguing, boxing style, that salvation is the only way we are saved. Brother Tim breaks down Paul’s arguments and the tackles possibly one of the toughest verses in the New Testament. At the end of this message you will learn how to remember God’s goodness in times of trial. 

I have seen the Lord! Mary Magdalene was sent on a mission by Jesus to tell everyone she saw him.  He rose from the dead. Sending her on a calling was Jesus’s way of helping her heal, as well as showing her gentleness. One can define gentleness as “just taking a little more time.” We all can benefit from taking more time with ourselves and others.

The focus of today’s lesson is on the tenderness of Jesus and how to receive comfort. Pastor Scott share many stories from the Bible of Jesus’s compassion. Also tells the story of Mary Magdalene at the tomb. Practical suggestions are given to become more gentle and how receive these gifts. These gifts from God are something we all need. 

Recently I ordered a shirt I that says, Spoiler  Alert: the tomb is empty. The crucifixion of Jesus was a dark, unfair day. All of us have experienced dark days of failures, traumas, disappointments, and subjects of unfair treatment. It is so easy to get stuck in these dark days. Through the resurrected we know that better days are coming! Chris has risen!!!

Pastor Scott explores the power of the resurrection. Through the writings of Paul and Peter we learn that the power is available to all of us. So is living hope, which our church is named after. Pastor Scott shares a personal story of how one life, his Aunt Anne, inspired others to believe and know that better days are coming. In this world we all need to learn about hope and the riches God has in store for us even in difficult times.

When we experience trauma, abuse, and mistreatment, three emotions surface: anger, sadness, and anxiety. They must be managed well or they end up controlling our lives and damaging our hearts. In fact, many people who have suffered need emotional healing. We need practical solutions that we can implement in our daily lives because of the residual waves of emotional pain.


In this sermon, Pastor Scott follows Peter’s lead in looking at Christ’s example of suffering. The crucifixion was the most atrocious of all abusive events in history. As we look at the crucifixion from Peter’s perspective we can learn a lot about managing our own hearts when it comes to unjust pain. We can’t escape hurt and pain but it doesn’t have to become our identity. Walk through the solutions from God’s Word to learn more about healing in your own heart.

Pontus Pilate. He is not a man many people envy. He had to make an impossible decision: to crucify Jesus or not. A decision he did not want or choose to make. What guided Pilates decision? Was it google, politics, popular opinions, or faith? What guides your choices?

Today we learn all about the conscience. God gave us all a conscience. Some people, like Pilate, lack faith. In this sermon Pastor Scott teaches us that the conscience is not the ultimate authority. Jesus made Pilate aware he had no power or authority except for that given from above. Pastor Scott shows us how the conscience helps us deal with our own sin, how it needs training, and how to handle a guilty conscious. After this sermon you will be asking yourself: How far am I willing to go to do the right thing?

Be sober minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour (1 Peter 5:8). Temptations lurk everywhere.  Over time cracks will form in our hearts and take us away from God. This is a dangerous place to be. God wants to protect us and restore us. God wants us to know and feel on our darkest days we are never, ever alone! 

In this message, we learn how Peter denies Christ three times. Pastor Scott shows us where Peter allowed temptations in, which leads to sin. Some of the danger zones we can all fall into are: being prideful, relying on self instead of God, becoming comfortable with the world, and following Christ at a distance.  We learn how to safeguard our hearts and identify potential pitfalls in our lives. When we rely on the mighty hand of God we will have a greater confidence and joy in our day to day lives.

I love you and you and you! Today’s society leads us to believe that we should love everyone-just the way they are. Is that just a selfish, self-seeking definition or the true meaning? In the love passage, Corinthians 13 2-7, defines an active, deeper love. Describes it as patient, kind, not arrogant, not boastful, not easily angered, and not self seeking. 

Pastor Scott shows us in today’s sermon that Gods’s love disciplines and corrects when needed. Just as a loving parent corrects their child.  Pastor Scott discusses how Jesus modeled love for all of us. Many practical ways we can practice our affection and root our love in biblical truths is shared. When applied correctly love compels us all to make a difference. God’s love can change our broken world.  

Life is hard. We all have experienced times of suffering. God says in 2 Corinthians 4: 8-12 we are hard-pressed on every side. Left at that, life can seem hopeless.

The good news for Christians is that God wants us to feel safe. The end of that verse goes on to say BUT not crushed, perplexed BUT not in despair. Pastor Scott teaches us this week that over 100 verses in the Bible talk about safety. Many of these verses are shared to be tucked away in our hearts in times of trouble. Our safety as Christians is in God. He wants us to feel safe so we can speak boldly, live confidently, and share the good news with others! In today’s message you will find a lot of hope. You’ll also learn how feeling safe is designed to prepare us to take risks for the Lord that take us into danger.

Listen to the sermon above.

God provides us with three broad ways to experience his glory. First, is to see his magnificent creation or just to to experience his greatness as we live life. The second has to do with experiencing God’s presence. The Israelites saw God’s glory when God’s presence came down on the tabernacle. The third is seeing his plan in motion in your life or the lives of others.

We have a glory dysfunction, a tendency to misunderstand or misrepresent the glory of God. But God does want us to participate in his glory. Listen to this sermon from Pastor Scott Turansky to understand more about what the glory of God is, and how you can best experience it in your own life.

We have several small groups at Calvary Chapel Living Hope. They meet in people’s homes and are good opportunities to study the Bible, share your life with others, and build significant friendships. Those people who get involved in small groups tend to grow spiritually more quickly and find strategic support for their lives.

Sometimes groups last only six or eight weeks because they cover a topic such as Growing Deeper in Your Faith, or God’s Principles of Finance. Other groups meet continually to provide regular opportunities for fellowship and learning.

You can learn more about the small groups at Calvary by checking the bulletin or stopping by the Information Table on Sunday mornings.

The family is under tremendous pressure today. But what better place to find strength than in God’s church. We take God’s discipleship mandate seriously and look for ways to disciple families in their roles and relationships.

I am Scott Turansky. I am the senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Living Hope Mango Tango products.

I want to challenge anyone and everyone that considers and searches for Truth with a capital “T” to a discussion of faith. No Replica Handbags, I am not afraid. No canada goose down skirt https://www.cagoosestore.ca Canada Goose expedition parka outlet fake, I am not timid. No, I am not one bit concerned about the outcome. I would like to talk with—engage in serious and deep conversation—the fierce skeptics and the silent seekers. I would like to sit and chat with those who are discouraged and put-off by church and church people. I would like to talk, face-to-face and persons-to-person with those who simply wonder where in the world God is in the midst of this mess of a culture that we have either been given or created.

Why? Because I believe the truth sets people free. I believe that God has placed in a person the need to know him and learning more is an important part of the process. I believe that an open conversation about things without a pushy or condemning attitude frees people to learn more about their potential. I believe that God wants to work in the hearts of people , to be a catalyst.

Abraham Lincoln once said Replica Handbags, “Truth is discovered through discourse.” I want to push through the limits of conventional and traditional surface conversation and truly get to the root of what it is like to serve God and to comprehend and probe the depths of faith. Which brings this conversation to you Replica Handbags, dear reader.

Dear Reader:

What is it that you seek from God? Do you seek understanding? Do you seek comfort? Do you seek God to self-identify and show up in some tangible way in your life? Do you have a particular thorny memory of being mal-treated by some person or group of faith? Do you wonder about the afterlife and how or where this might be? Do you ask yourself: “Where is God when I need him most?” What about Jesus Christ. Do you question or seek understanding of him and his claims? Do you seek to know more of Christ? Or, do you wish to debunk the church and deny all of his claims? I care about what you think and would seek to plumb the depths of your personal inquisition.

It goes without saying that I am a Pastor of a congregation and a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. My desire is to listen and to learn and to join you in your spiritual quest for guidance and meaning. In short, I’d like to help you explore faith.

Ping me. Let’s Get Coffee!

I am a Pastor. I spend my time listening to, counseling with, and providing comfort for, burying and marrying people. People’s lives are not all that dissimilar. People, normal everyday folk—like you and me—in the end want simple things.

Simple things like: happy families and well-educated kids and paid bills and steady jobs and a viable, long-lasting and enduring marriage. Believe it or not, you have been lied to—again. Marriage is doing better than some people think, according to Shaunti Feldhahn, author of the new book, “The Good News about Marriage: Debunking Discouraging Myths about Marriage and Divorce.

Time to Look at the Stats Again

According to Feldhahn, here are the real stats that govern marriage, divorce and longevity of this most cherished and sacred of all relationships:

  • The overall divorce rate for society as a whole has never been close to 50%.  While some high-risk groups have hit that number, according to Census figures the overall first-marriage divorce rate is probably closer to 25-30%.
  • The common belief that second marriages have a super-high divorce rate of 60%+ is an urban legend; the second-marriage divorce rate is probably closer to 35%.
  • The rate of divorce is not the same in the church: it is 25-50% lower, and the common belief otherwise is based on a serious misunderstanding of the Barna data.
  • Most marriages aren’t perfect, but most are happy; about 80% of couples enjoy being married, and the 20% who aren’t happy are very likely to be if they stick it out for 5 years.

Contrary to popular opinion, marriage doesn’t require rocket science to make it work; some little adjustments usually make a big difference. Here are some simple adjustments to consider that just might make your spouse’s day a wee-bit easier and gentler to glide through:

  • Communicate affirmation: Send a text that just says, “I love you!”
  • Spend time together: Take a Walk! No kids…no hassles…no agendas…just walk
  • Serve the other person: Do a chore! Lots of tidying up to do around every house…take a moment and help out
  • Give a gift: Buy a pastry or special treat! Who doesn’t like chocolate!
  • Grow Spiritually together: Come to church and share spiritually with each other.

And don’t forget to listen. Really. Just listen. Turn off the devices. Turn off the TV. Throw away the cares of this day and nestle into the beautiful and calming sound of your spouse at rest. In my mind, that is the true and lasting picture of beauty.

Join me this week!

I am Scott Turansky. I care about families. I have dedicated my life to nurturing and growing and sustaining families. Give me a shout-out. I would love to hear your story. I’m teaching this Sunday, Maybe you’d like to join me.

Scott

 

I spend a great deal of my time flying around the country. I speak at churches and conventions and symposiums all across our great nation. I address issues that affect families and parents and the level of risk that our kids face—risks that you and I didn’t even know could, let alone would, exist. There are some simple conclusions that I’ve come to in the last few years. Let’s take a look at one of these…

The Quest for Perfect

Many times husbands and wives cringe when their spouse asks them to go and look at furniture, or ‘new homes,’ or worst of all: designer wallpaper. The reason is that men and women are bombarded with programs and literature and magazine ads that push and tug at visual improvements. I’m not saying this is a ‘bad’ thing in and of itself. What I’m saying is that in this culture in contemporary America, this whole thing seems to be over-the-top.

The push for perfectionism is everywhere. The tug and nudge to spend and improve and update seems non-stop. The desire to meet the standard of ‘best’ or ‘better’ swarms around every single family. As a long-standing pastor of this community, I see the impact and effect of this kind of focus.

Let me state my intent here as clearly as I possibly can: Much of the time we don’t need the things we buy. Your home is fine. Your present car—as long as it is running and capable of getting you and your team from Point A to Point B is fine and useful. What is not useful is purging yourself of what you have and constantly looking to replace and update and improve.

I have a friend who is a contractor. He frequently finds himself in the uncomfortable position of playing marriage counselor. He said that sometimes the words and the language and the ill-feelings of whether or not to ‘redo the downstairs bathroom’ can be brutal.

Think: is your life going to be all that much ‘better’ if you change out your downstairs carpet and replace it with a brand new laminate floor?

The Most Important Things

The Bigger Picture is that your family needs spiritual guidance. Your family needs spiritual mooring. Your family needs the comfort, care, instruction and wise counsel of local people who will walk with you through good times and not-so-good times.

Stated simply: you and your family need a spiritual home. Do yourself a favor, ping me. Let’s Get Coffee! I’d love to get to know you. I’d love to find out who you are and swap life stories. I’d love to introduce you to some of our community’s best and brightest people. I’d love to share insights from God’s Word and the accumulated wisdoms of the Scripture.

One thing is a given: there’s a time coming when you’re going to need such a community. Calvary Chapel Living Hope is your place where contentment radiates forth. Let’s find time to connect and get to know one another this week. In fact, I’m teaching this Sunday. Come and join me.

Ed Miller coaches the Hamilton As baseball team that went on to the USABL World Series Championship. He also attends Calvary Chapel Living Hope. Here’s what Ed says:

I love being part of a larger family at Calvary Chapel Living Hope. We worship, serve, learn and have fun together. There are many challenging issues in the world today. This is a place where we can wrestle and struggle together as we seek to live out Christian principles in every-day life.

Here’s what one of the dads of a player says:
Little does he know the importance of having such a fine man and mentor as his baseball coach. It’s truly amazing how in life special people come into our lives! This man gives of himself many hours teaching boys the game of baseball, which is really a byproduct of what he’s actually teaching them about is life itself. He’s a man of God, leading by example and we couldn’t be more blessed!

Thank you Ed Miller for representing Christ on and off the field!

We have a lot to be proud of in our community and our heritage is rich. Let me just tell you one piece of our history. Mercer County is named after Hugh Mercer, a General in the Continental Army. General Mercer was stabbed during a battle for Princeton. He refused to abandon his troops. General Mercer leaned against and propped himself up with a giant oak of Mercer County as crutch and support chair.

The Mercer Oak became the emblem of courage and determination and the very symbol emblazoned upon the seal of Mercer County. Mercer County’s history can be traced to one man who refused to abandon those in peril.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

A different kind of danger to our community now concerns me. Families are under tremendous pressure today. The work needed to protect a marriage and raise a family is immense with pitfalls at every turn. I have committed my life to strengthening families, identifying and nurturing the necessary ingredients that will make a family strong.

Some people mistakenly believe that if they can help the individuals in the family be successful, then they’ll have a successful family. Dad and Mom might be doing well in their businesses, kids may excel at music and sports, grades might be good, and finances managed. But if the family as a unit isn’t nurtured, then those successful people tend to drift apart. Relationships become tense and closeness becomes illusive. In fact, many people believe that to be normal and expected.

I’m convinced that a family can grow closer and be successful today. Blended families, single parent families, and adoptive and foster families all need the same ingredients to contribute to their success. At Calvary Chapel Living Hope we are committed to strengthening families.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

The family is the backbone of a community and it’s what makes our community great! I encourage you to stop by on a Sunday morning and check us out. We meet at the Pond Road Middle School at 10:00 am. Or, if you’d like, shoot me an email and let’s talk seroquel dosage.

3 Ways to Cope With the PRESSURE of Family Busyness

Families are under tremendous pressure today. Setting up and running a family is a HUGE endeavor. Once we get the kids enrolled in their activities, then we must outfit them, transport them, pay for it all, and attend their events. Not that those things are bad. We love our kids, but when you add those things on top of keeping food on the table and clothes in the drawers, or at least clean, and paying bill, then it all adds up to significant pressure. Some are able to handle it better than others, but we all would benefit from these three solutions as we plan, organize, and execute family life.

1) Plan Time to Rest and Enjoy Relationships.

If you don’t plan rest, it won’t happen. The Correll family did it this way. Dad and Mom with their 14, 10, and 8 year old decided they would block out Saturday evenings for rest and two evenings a week to eat together. They put those priorities on the calendar first. And, when it’s time to rest, it’s not just about everyone going to their own rooms or getting on the electronic media independently. It’s about spending time together and sharing life stories. It’s not always easy, but the Corrells report that their family is growing closer together instead of experiencing the fragmentation that pressure often produces.

2) Keep Long Term Goals in Mind But Enjoy the Moment

The urgency of the moment often causes us to miss the important things we want for our family. Our goal for our kids can’t be to make them happy. They need to develop character, responsibility and maturity if they are going to be successful in life. Those parents who indulge their children or deprive them of the privilege of working hard are often sorry in the end because their kids become soft and unable to face the challenges the real world provides. Those who are successful with family life are able to enjoy the everyday experiences while keeping the long-term goal of character building in mind.

3) Don’t Let Other People’s Expectations Cause You To Overcommit, Including Your Kids

There is a line that you cross where busyness exceeds your family’s ability to manage it. When you cross that line then relationships become tense, distance grows between the members, and family satisfaction takes a dive. Be strong enough to stand up to the Jones’ mentality that says all kids need to be in a particular program. Set aside your fears that if you don’t enroll your child in this event or activity, then they’ll be scarred for life. Sometimes it’s best to say to kids who have an insatiable desire for activity, “In order for you to add that to your life, you need to be doing well contributing at home, working at school, and treating family members well. Then we can talk about adding something else to your plate.

Of course one of the main ways to keep this balance is to have the support of a community. I’m the pastor of Calvary Chapel Living Hope. Let me remind you on this day, that there is a village nearby, just outside of your circle of knowledge that will support you and help you strengthen your family.

Calvary Chapel Living Hope suggests you center your life and home upon faith because faith works!

Let’s Get Coffee! Ping me. Let’s find a time and a place to sit, chat and get to know one-another. My life is centered in service to men and women and their families. I teach around the United States every week about strengthening families. I understand your struggles and believe that your goals are within your reach. Family life doesn’t have to be as hard as some allow it to be. Oh yes, it’s hard, but my mission it to make it a bit easier.

 

There seems to be a lot of bad news reported today in the media. Terrorism, violence, natural and not-so-natural disasters seem to happen continually. Even the weather report is often negative.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

When the news starts to breed anxiety and fear instead of courage and hope, then maybe it’s time to change the channel. I’m not suggesting that we bury our heads in the sand. It’s important to stay informed, but it’s also important to consider where we get our news feed.

It reminds me of a story in the Old Testament in the book of Numbers. Twelve spies were sent into the Promised Land to check it out before the Israelites would enter go to my site. 10 of the spies (We’ll call them Channel 10) reported about the giants in the land and predicted doom and gloom. Unfortunately, the people chose to listen to this news source and fear and anxiety was the result.

The other two spies saw the same things, but their report was different. “With God’s help we will win!” They too saw the giants but their perspective on the facts was vastly different because they included God in the equation.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Our world is challenging today, but I believe in a God who helps us become victors instead of victims. He gives us hope instead of despair. Faith replaces fear. I too am a news reporter. And I want to regularly communicate the living hope that God provides for us.

If you’re finding that the news is getting you down, why don’t you check out 150 Pond Road on Sunday mornings. I’m Scott Turansky and I’m preaching this weekend! As always, I’ll be sharing a message of Living Hope!

Please allow me to introduce myself…I’m Scott Turansky. I’m the pastor at Calvary Chapel Living Hope.

I’m your neighbor. I shop at the same grocery stores that you do. I watch movies at the same theaters that you do. I sit in traffic as you do.Watch movie online The Transporter Refueled (2015)

I live and work here. For the majority of my adult life, I have served the people of this area. I understand the people here. I know of the triumphs and the downturns of their lives. I have celebrated many a victory with families that you both know and don’t know. I have walked the shadow of despair with others that once were your neighbors.

Over the next few months, I am going to be posting notes, thoughts and invitations to you. My primary purpose here is to improve the quality of your life—every single aspect of it. You say, “How in the world can anyone do that!?” My answer is pretty simple: I care and I’m committed to helping people move to the next level of their personal development.

I’ve lived long enough and served enough people that I can calmly and gently say, “I know something about helping people.” I know something about the people that live in this community. I know something about the struggles and tugs and time restraints that our people face in their day-to-day lives. I also know something of how to bring relief and remedy.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

So, sit back and relax. A few times a week, you will be hearing from me. Let’s make a commitment to one-another: let’s decide to get to know one-another. Drop me a line. Send me an email. Let’s get some coffee someday soon.

Scott
