Last month, one of our weeks focused on taking stock. With the beginning of the new year, we thought it was the perfect time to take inventory of our lives, to check our priorities, to see where and how much we were investing in certain […]


With the holidays well behind us, and Valentine’s Day still in our rearview mirror, we have a question to ask you. But, before we ask it, we want you to know that we are not judging here. So here it is: Did you write thank […]


All of us have made plans to have lunch with a friend, to meet with a customer or colleague, and to begrudgingly go to the dentist. We have also all said that we would call someone back in those infamous “5 minutes.” On the surface, […]


Even with all we believe from religion, philosophy, psychology, sociology, evolution, and economics or whatever you believe, there is one rule that remains constant.

We like to think that this rule is alive and well and will continue to be, well, for forever. But lately, we see this rule taking a back to seat to some others things that are not quite so positive and constructive. So this month, we think it’s time to get back into the habit of asking ourselves whether or not “we are doing unto others as we would have them do unto us?” Are we truly showing regard for the feelings, wishes, rights, and traditions of others? And, are we showing appreciation, politely speaking to and about one another day in and day out? Because these statements are actually just the definitions of “respect” adapted into questions. Respect is at the root of The Golden Rule. In fact, it’s through respect for ourselves and for one another that we’ll create a world filled with people who know how much and why they matter. So get ready for a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T. Respect matters. VO from talk by author, speaker, pastor, influencer, Erwin McManus.  http//
