I Changed My Perspective and I Changed My Life

We live in a world filled with negativity. I personally believe that we have created a culture where being overly negative and pessimistic is the norm and expected. Frankly, I think we as people like being the Debbie Downer. We "lose faith in humanity" on a daily basis, love to over-criticize everything, attack each other because [...]


Today is the Only Day that Matters. Live like You Believe it.

Today. The day that comes after yesterday and happens before tomorrow. It is the present, the now, this moment. It is here. It isn't just a day. It's the greatest day.

Grab a Shovel. Life is Messy

I have had a message on my heart for weeks. Actually, I think it has been there for months.  I've wanted to share it with you, with others, but I've struggled to adequately put it into words.

New Children’s Book “Matty McNutt and His Big But” To Launch This Fall

In December of 2013 we published our first children's book and began our mission to educate, empower, and inspire the next generation of world-changers. "Linnie Mae's New Friends" taught children (and adults) that all people have value and that we should not pass judgement against them when we do not know their story. To date, [...]

Too Much High-C is Bad For Your Life

Today's society is addicted to High-C. We thirst for it. We crave it. Some of us could not move forward without it. It is the main course of our diet and we consume a lot of it.
