Love God With All…

Growing up I wonder what the Bible meant when it says to love God with your heart, soul, strength, and mind. As I wasn’t a scholar of either Hebrew or Greek, I interpret these English words very basically as emotions, spirit, body, and intellect. However, even the shortest online search told me it wasn’t so […]

The Battle for the Mind 

In my book “Transforming Your Mind In 30 Days,” I allude to the fact, that there is a battle going on for control of your mind.

No Competition

Growing up in the UK, when people bought something new, we used to say that they were trying to “keep up with the Jones’s (trying to compete with your neighbours).” It’s easy to be tempted to go through life competing with everyone around us. When we see someone who’s more talented, better looking or has more gifts, […]
