You’ve felt the yoyo effect of business and finances. For a time you were doing really well and making great gains, but the next thing you know, you’re handing the keys of your house and car over to the bank. How do you navigate the shame and embarrassment of perceived failure?

Honouring Your Spouse Regardless of the Infertility

It’s not in the beginning stages or even when you hear that awful confirmation of your infertility that the testing and trial really sinks in. It hits in the quiet months and years ahead when you’re reeling from the information and aren’t sure what to do next; it’s in the murky middle of the waiting.

“Have you felt lonely today, yesterday, this past year? Do you feel like you spend more time feeling isolated than feeling fulfilled by your social community? As cliché as this sounds, you are not alone in this, and that is why this is such an important thing to talk about seriously and to look at with a biblical lens.

The Exciting Commissioning Ceremony of a Soldier and King

The British monarchy has been followed by millions of people around the world for decades. Their lives captivate us with romance, drama, and intrigue most likely from the fairy tales of castles, princes, and princesses since we were children.

Many have adored Prince William as they’ve watched him grow and prepare to become a future king.
