How To Be A Great Boss To Your Assistant

0

I am one of the world's luckiest pastors (Is it okay to use "lucky" and "pastor" in the same sentence?). I am lucky - or should I say "Blessed" - because I have the world's best administrative assistant working with me.

5 Keys to Dealing with Overwhelming Emotions

0

There are times in life when fog is all you see in the five day forecast. Shining a light only seems to worsen the problem as the small rays of light are magnified by every molecule of water.

Sin is sticky. Like rubber cement all over our hand, we try hard to get it off and in turn just go on making a bigger mess. Finlly when we think we've got it off, the sticky residue still remains. Christ came so that we could have freedom. Freedom from his wrath. Freedom from our guilt and shame. Freedom from...

What Does It Mean to Please God at Work?
