What is your foundation?

Lyndal Dale What foundation are you building your life on?  Many people seek public opinion as a foundation for determining their success or failure in life.

Getting Even

By Kendall Lowe On one occasion, as a young boy, I found myself in a rough situation with my older brother. He was on the computer playing a game, and I was watching over his shoulder. My brother, of course, didn’t appreciate that and told me to go away. However, being the kid that I […]

Turn On the Light

Kendall Lowe How many of us are afraid of the dark? If not, how many of us in a certain situation would be afraid of the dark? Being alone? Being lost? The dark can be a pretty scary place for just about anyone. My least favorite part about being in the dark is that you […]
