Happy New Year everyone! How are you doing on this fine Jan. 1st, 2016? Have you already broken any resolutions? Don’t feel bad. You are in good company! Mine was to start eating healthy and I just finished off a bag of chips from last night. Well, there weren’t THAT many in there. Don’t judge now. Everybody has their issues. Food, cigarettes, alcohol – whatever it is, you can be sure that it has a death-grip on you if you can’t…..

Christmas is coming soon and I have some thoughts on life and death as it means to me. Jesus was born and died to save us from ourselves. We are humans and we make mistakes. Jesus was God Incarnate so he was without flaws and sins. He was perfect. We can never be perfect. So, I thank God that He sent Jesus to take away our sins and help us through life. We celebrate His birth at Christmas time because of that…..

How many times do we forget to be thankful and grateful for what we have? Lots of times, I think. Kids especially. They really are too young to realize how lucky they are with the life they have. Timmy Teacup finds that out in Timmy Teacup Transforms and ends up being happy with what he has. It’s a lesson most kids can learn from a little bit.

As adults we need to remind children from time to time. Thanksgiving is a…..

How many times have you said to yourself, “I don’t know if I’m good enough to do that”? Especially when we are thinking about doing something out of our comfort zone, it seems that fear becomes our reason for not trying the new skill or new project.

SELF-CONFIDENCE  is an elusive thing.

One minute you have it, the next minute you don’t. Kids, especially, need reassurance when starting a new sport or a new class in acting or just starting school each year……
