WHO WILL BUILD YOUR MONUMENT?

Family is not the most important thing. It’s everything. Michael J. Fox When this life is all said and done, what’s left.  What will we leave behind when we go.

JUST DON’T DO IT

Abstinence is a dirty word.  A word that makes nearly everyone uncomfortable.  It is, however, a potent tool that is at our disposal.  People think that to abstain from something is hard, and it is, but it isn’t impossible.  We have a strange defeating way about the way we look at the world because we …

Buy a Cabin in the Woods

I like to call myself a minimalist, but I still have to buy things just like you. Saying your a minimalist is kind of like saying you are a Christian.
