Words of Wisdom
Contemplations on love and work.
A panel of four guest commentators ponders the question, "Does love pay?"
Change creates opportunity for growth. But why do we resist change? Why is it that when change happens, oftentimes our first reaction is to dig in our heels?

Give to God and He will bless what's left.
