Wrath does not belong to you

“Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay’ says the Lord. ‘But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty give him a drink; for in doing so you will heap burning coals on his head’ […]

Giving thanks for the family you have can be a challenge for some, or it can be the easiest of things to do for others.  Whether your family falls into the first category or the second, the truth is that when we give thanks for each member, those relationships will begin to change. It may […]

I just finished participating in my Making A Million Look Small class on-line and heard some incredible teachings from Bob Proctor.  If you don’t know who Bob Proctor is I would encourage you to “google” him and learn more about this amazing man.  He started from nothing, got no more then a couple years of high […]
