  • A funeral home offers peace of mind when purchasing a prepaid funeral plan.
  • A food products company offers peace of mind when purchasing its natural, environmentally friendly products.

Being Faithful is Critical in Relationships

Being Faithful. Day one...

When my kids wanted to be a part of an extra‐curricular activity at school, I made sure they understood that they must finish the season.

Connecting Thoughts and Emotions

A Change of Mind. Day five...

My favorite dessert is vanilla ice cream made with the Melin family recipe. This cooked‐custard recipe freezes into an ice cream unequalled by anything else I've ever tasted. Vanilla, just plain old‐fashioned vanilla in a bowl with no toppings—a little bit of heaven on earth.

Exposing a Victim Mentality

A Change of Mind. Day forty-two...
