Taking accountability does far more to restore credibility than attempting to cover things up

Last week I spent the week hosting a group of fabulous people on our houseboat at Lake Powell. It is always a ton of work to host a big group for a week but its also incredibly rewarding to spend quality time really getting to know people on a closer level without any technology distractions […]

Stay focused on your effort rather than the outcome

I am a huge believer in setting goals (as any of you who follow me know). To me setting a goal gets you pointed in the right direction and it gives you an objective you want to achieve. Then you set smaller short term goals that will lead you to accomplish that big picture goal […]

“Families are like fudge, mostly sweet with lots of nuts!” As we head into the home stretch before Christmas Eve’s traditional gathering together of families everywhere, we ought to pause a moment to prepare ourselves to deal with the chaos ahead. I come from a very large family of ten children. My husband comes from […]
