I Want to Start a Movement: Be Your Cool Self

April 30th, 2018 Uncategorized

Anyone who has read a good book, heard a great sermon, or even remembers a fun jingle or song, knows the power of words. Many sayings have been penned to summarize what words can mean and which words we should ignore; for instance, we all know, “sticks and stones will break by bones but names will never hurt me.” Today…

I Want to Start a Movement: Courage to Change the Things I Can

April 30th, 2018 Uncategorized

When I was growing up, the Serenity Prayer was on the wall of my grandmother’s dining room, done in very careful embroidery by my Aunt Margaret.

I am going to assume that you are thinking that just one person cannot change the world.  It’s a big place, right? It has too many problems for one person to fix.
