Forever Friends

1 Corinthians 15:53-55 (NLT) For our dying bodies must be transformed into bodies that will never die; our mortal bodies must be transformed into immortal bodies. Then, when our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,   this Scripture will be fulfilled:  “Death is swallowed up in victory.   O death, where is your victory? O death, where is your sting?” I spent last evening in a youth service with grieving young people. The young girl killed in a horrible tragedy had touched many and her kindness rippled through the crowd as many shared of her character even at the tender age of 16. Their sobs racked my heart. Why God? The grief counselors from the local high school were there – all believers – they talked with some, embraced others tightly and prayed with those who requested it. I was moved by the Presence of God in the midst of such sorrow and heartache. Hugging her mother, I prayed peace and strength walking through this week into her new normal. I could

Is Work a Happy Place?

We spend so much of our time at work, and yet many of us are unhappy. Stress in the workplace is an increasing area of concern, costing UK businesses £40 billion last year in stress-related issues; accidents, absenteeism, poor performance. Whether we're working for ourselves or for someone else it's becoming increasingly important to find ways that support work being a happy place. What is it that's questioning if work is a happy place? Is it the actual work itself or are there other significant factors? 25% adults report suffering from insomnia on a Sunday night.  Some of that is due to the dread of a tough Monday morning commute; the prospect of traffic jams, parking issues, crowded buses and trains all make for a less than pleasant start to the week. Increasingly companies are happy for staff to work from home on occasion or use a more flexible approach to their day by maybe starting earlier or later, so avoiding rush hour and minimising the stress of the journey to

Three Key Advantages of Speaking Accurately

How many times have you strained to hear exactly what someone has said? Perhaps it was because the speaker was not loud enough; but more often, it's due to the speaker's inability to speak clearly. If you want to be a confident speaker then do not overlook the advantages of getting your pronunciation, clear and correct. Here are three key advantages for doing so: #1. Correct Pronunciation  is essential to show that you are familiar with someone's name, or regional location, or unique terminology. Always check first if you have the slightest doubt about how a word is pronounced before you deliver a presentation, speak on a podcast, radio, video or television, or interview someone. For example, the other day while listening to a national radio show from Toronto, Ontario, the broadcaster mispronounced the name of a nearby rural town, Elmira, several times as her lead-in to an upcoming interview. It wasn't until the actual interview took place that she finally correcte

5 Simple Strategies for Raising Awesome Kids

Do you remember the friends you had in high school who were given a car with no expectation of responsibility vs. those friends who had to work for their car? I'm sure you noticed the same difference that I did, regarding the level of care and appreciation they had for their vehicles. When my kids were that age and a classmate was given a car, they got in trouble. The kids that had to work for the car appreciated it! When you don't earn the things you want, you don't appreciate them. Doing chores as a child teaches children to be accountable, responsible, and disciplined. This also builds a "proper work ethic" for their future? Zig Ziglar, motivational speaker and author, was the tenth of twelve children. He was born in "LA," (that's lower Alabama), and raised in Yazoo City, Mississippi. His Mom had a fifth-grade education, and his father died when he was 5 years old during the Depression. Zig said, "mom was a wise woman. We were all har
