Looking For a Job?

Are you looking for a job in 2022? Years ago, I was between jobs and not sure where to turn.  I began praying and asking God to open doors for me through my network of friends. Within days, a friend referred me to a friend of his who owned a large company. The interview was […]

Integrity Is Priceless

Your integrity is priceless. Integrity is the condition of being whole, complete, undivided. It characterizes the morally upright.

Love Your Neighbor

Do you love your neighbor? Martin Luther once said: “A true Christian lives and labors on earth not for himself but for his neighbor.

Financial Benefits of Relationships

Years ago, one of my sons was so frustrated with his boss that he wanted to quit his job. I counseled him to stay.
