How to Manage the Small Things That Arise In Life

Why The Small Things Matter + How to Handle Them

In Faith

I was participating in a mastermind group one day and my mentor shared a story about how we need to be cognizant over the small things in our lives because they can derail us. She shared two examples to illustrate her point. The difference between a motorcycle that is upright and traveling safely is a pebble, because over a certain rate of speed a small thing like a pebble hit the wrong way can result in a motorcycle accident. Also, she shared that periodically a large airplane can crash because a bird interfered with the flight mechanism. This is exactly…

Disclosure: I’m excited to be working with Ellevest to start this conversation about women and money. I may receive compensation if you become an Ellevest client. It is the beginning of 2018, which means it is New Year’s Resolution time. This is the time when many people are using the term, “New Year New Me,” but how often does the New Year become a repeat of the years before? According to Biblical numerology, the number 8 means new. Therefore, let’s make this new year truly a new year for you to live the life that you were called to live….

One thing that has been weighing on my spirit lately is the prevalence of “itching ears” in our community. In 2 Timothy 4:3 (ESV) the Bible says, “For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions.” This means that people will no longer be concerned with the righteous thing to do or what is true, but will instead seek out people who will tell them what they want to hear. For example, do you have a friend that you call who will…

Do You Need An Emergency Credit Card

Do You Need An Emergency Credit Card?

In Finance

Imagine receiving notice that a Catagory 4 or 5 was going to make a direct hit on your community and the authorities issued an evacuation. What would you do?  Would you stay or would you go?  The thought of escaping imminent danger is necessary, but at the same time how would you pay for it? As I was sitting with my sister trying to frantically look for $700-$1,000 flights (before the airline companies were shamed into reducing the cost), looking up pet policies for the airlines, and evaluating highway evacuation routes for which roads had the least amount of traffic,…
