Can you trust a snake

Our pastor told a joke at church last night and it was hilarious. There was this little boy walking into the woods one day and he sees a snake by a tree. The snake asks the little boy to help him get up in the tree. The little boy said, ” no you’re a snake, you’ll bite me” The snake said, “no I promise, I won’t hurt you. I just need help. I can’t get in that tree by myself. I promise I won’t hurt you” So the boy helped…

How to Avoid Bank Fees

Everyone has gone through the dreadful bank fee situations. Banks are charging more and more money every few years or so with bank fees. These fees are a billion dollar industry to the banks. The banks love them – and we would like to cast them (the fees) into the sea never to return again. It seems like every action we take is subject to some kind of fee.

Making Marriage Work for YOU

I’ve been married for 20+ years so I consider myself a (personal experience) expert on marriage. I believe, sometimes, life experiences are much better than book sense or degrees. I’d rather hear from someone who has been where I’m trying to go. Success breeds success. How can you preach to me about marriage and you’ve never been married? How can you tell me how to change a baby’s diaper and you’ve never changed one? Experience is the best teacher. #marriage. You’ve planned the big day since you were a little…
