Use Your Mind to Combat Killer Stress!

You hate your boss, you hate your work, your co-workers drive you crazy, and you’re convinced you’re underpaid even if you weren’t horribly overworked. You’re stressed all the time! Small wonder. . .


You’re tired, achy, rarely get a peaceful night’s sleep, and now you’ve come down with a cold! Which you seem to catch more and more frequently, plus there’s your stomach upset and now some sort of stupid rash on your neck. All of which you are convinced is due to your…

Young Black Love

Is different from any other.

For the young lady, the young man,

It’s a different sense.

A feeling only some really experience.

Young Black Love is natural,

It’s not planned or pre-arranged.

It happens at moment’s notice,

And at times, ends just as fast.

But still the experience to love

A Black young man for a Black young lady

Is something her heart will…

Celebrate Your Life With Love this Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day: a joy if you’re blessed with a wonderful relationship, an annoyance (or worse) if you’re single and unhappy about it, or in a “challenging” (aka miserable) relationship . . .


But what if - splendidly coupled, despairingly single, or somewhere in between - you chose, this Valentine’s Day to fall in love with your LIFE! To expand the idea of a day devoted to the love in our lives beyond that “special person,” mate or significant other, and celebrate the love…

Marriage Crisis Repair

It wasn’t too long ago in the course of our marriage that my wife and I had a crisis. We’d been married for 35 years and our 3 children were no longer children and had flown the coop.

Strangely enough, all it took to help our relationship was a bird-feeder!

Throughout our years together we have always had our separate hobbies. I absolutely love birding and it’s been my main hobby since college. I went to Boise State University (when I started it was Boise College, by the time…

What's love got to do with finances?

Marriage…what a simple yet complicated thing, right? What can seem extremely easy—loving someone—can also be extremely difficult, when you drill it down. When you love someone, you are no longer thinking about just yourself, or someone else, you're thinking about each other, as a…

Don’t Leave Yourself Out of Thanksgiving Gratitude!

Thanksgiving is almost here - that time of year when “get your gratitude on!” is the game of the day. And indeed, you do have your gratitude well in gear.


You are ready to express your gratefulness for your family, your friends, your job (maybe, could be a stretch), Pilates, football, the roof over your head, your pets, your new smart phone, the Macy’s sale, and lots more.


The only thing notably lacking in your list of “things I am grateful for” is YOU. Ah…

Happiness Is A 5:1 Deal - It’s Scientific!

Your spouse says “You’re gonna wear that?!” Your child, in a fit of frustration, yells out “I hate you!” Your boss says “This’ll never fly. Where’s your creativity?”


Whether important or not, life-altering or just annoying, why is it that a single critical comment from your spouse, child or business partner hurts more than the compliment or appreciative words they offer? Why does that criticism linger while the compliment fades away almost immediately?

Everyone has an opinion on what makes a marriage successful.  Researchers research, counselors counsel, and preachers preach.  I suggest there are some basic considerations that give a couple the opportunity to have an effective marriage.   And I use the term “effective marriage” because the idea of what is successful is so relative.


First there is the issue of communication, and particularly listening.  Couples who honestly listen to…

Study Reveals "Magic Moment" for Unwed Parents to Get Hitched

A Duke University study has unravelled some findings about children born out of wedlock and what it means for the parents and the children. In short, the researchers suggest that the "magic moment" for parents to get married after their baby is born is before the child's third birthday. This is when a lot of federal policies are available and the effects, according to the researchers, last longer than…

Foreclosure defense: Can it save your home?

Many people unfamiliar with foreclosure defense don't see the reasoning behind seeking legal counsel during foreclosure. In many people's eyes, the homeowner is to blame for the foreclosure and why should a lawyer advocate for them. In actuality, foreclosure defense isn't about getting a person a free home. Ultimately the mortgage will need to be paid. However, foreclosure defense can save a home when nothing else will. Here's how.
