couple-common-cents-book-coverI love this book! It’s a great example of a young couple dealing with finances. I believe it’s very true to life. And as a wife who deals with the money and budget in our marriage, I definitely could relate to her feelings on a lot of things.”

“The book is good at showing the different ways of thinking about money, with one person more concerned about security and the other just happy with the status quo and thinking debt is the way to go, just because it’s always been that way.”

“I recommend the book as a good example of how one family worked together to learn about finances and changed their thinking to make things better.”

Academic Career: The Professor is In book reviewI recently read the book The Professor is In by Karen Kelsky. Though I don’t agree with her worldview, I do appreciate how she describes the tenure-track professor/academic career environment, especially in the humanities. Continue Reading…

Are you looking to get a press release done?

I highly recommend Mickie Kennedy and his team at eReleases for all business and organization press release needs.

The team at eReleases will look over your draft, proof it, and spice it up a little bit if needed so that you can make sure it will be seen by more reporters and other people with a great headline and really good content throughout.

They do a good job teaching you how to do a press release, too.

And there’s some surprises along the way, too, but I can’t tell you about them, otherwise they won’t be surprises anymore!

Go to ereleases.com and send out your press releases through eReleases! They do an excellent job. I highly recommend them.

Free the Beagle book reviewNearly nine years ago I first read the book Free the Beagle by Roy H. Williams for a college class.

Last week I read it again.

It’s not very often that a required college textbook impacts you so much that you search high and low to seek it out and read it again—for fun. Continue Reading…

Have you ever thought about what Jesus is doing today?

Is He just sitting in heaven waiting for the Father to tell Him to come back, twiddling His thumbs?

Hardly.

This is a topic that I’ve wanted to research for at least three years now, if not more. I went back through my file of “things to research someday”. Here’s a screenshot:

Well, Frank Viola beat me to it with his newest book, Jesus Now. And I’m glad he did. Not because I don’t have to do the research, but because Viola did a fantastic job clearly explaining Jesus’ current ministry.

And Frank explained much more than Jesus as our high priest.

Jesus Now: What Is He Up To Today?

Jesus is still active and present. In fact, He has seven specific ways that He works today. And all seven have to do with you and me. Continue Reading…
