It is so easy to get discouraged in the road to manifesting your dreams and passions. Not enough money, not enough time, and not enough support are just a few allowances that we give ourselves to put the passions on standby. When, actually, all this is doing is allowing you to settle with complacency, and giving you more excuses to go further away from your dreams. I have heard so many people tell me that the reason why they are not doing what once was their dream or passion – or even what they obtained a college degree in – is that … Continue reading Feed Your Dreams, Let Them Live
Have you every regretted how you felt when you made a decision out of haste? When you decided to call that ex when you were lonely? Or how about when you yelled at your spouse because you could not control … Continue reading The Power of Peace Over Rashness
Promotion… Does God base it off merit, grace or both? Well, I suppose you can apply this to why non-Christians get promotions as well. If you are a hardworker, you’re a hardworker. The “sowing and reeping” principle works across the … Continue reading Ask Chris: God-given Promotion – Merit, Grace, or Both?

Let’s face it, you are engaged to be married, so why not wait for all the benefits? While married, you now share last names, bank accounts, families, housing, taxes and credit.

Put it this way: if you are not a virgin, why not allow your future husband or wife to experience … Continue reading Ask Chris: Engaged Couples and Physical Intimacy – What’s Too Far?

However, they are scared of the possible results. What makes matters even worse, they spend 5, 10, even 15 years of their life working FAR below … Continue reading Why Are You Working For “The Man”?
Twenty-one years ago, a non-intimidating North Carolina State team entered the NCAA Basketball tournament, led by their coach, Jimmy Valvano. Despite ten losses that season, “Jimmy V” did not lose hope in his team, even though they had a struggling 8-6 conference record and lost a total of 33 games in three years. Coming in as a sixth seed in the West Region, they upset #3 UNLV and #1 Virginia, both by one point. Then, the unthinkable happened. They made it to the championship game, playing Midwest Region #1 and tournament finalist Houston – nicknamed “Phi Slamma Jamma” due to their NCAA … Continue reading Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams
