Fingerprints

When I look back at the defining moments in my life and dust for prints, the greatest moments are the moments when my fingerprints are nowhere to be seen. All I see are the fingerprints of God. How tempting is it when someone blatantly does wrong to you, or even worse to one of your […]

Leadership

I was 15 when I read my first leadership book, outside of the Bible, “Why Bad Things Happen to Good People”. It was a book that really helped me understand that you can be a good person, do the right thing the best you know how and still, bad things can happen. FYI…no one is […]
