Three People You Need in Your Life

I won’t sugar coat the fact that life is hard. There’s no denying that. But too often we try to control our circumstances to avoid the “hard”— like if we eat right or get on a budget, then life will be rainbows and unicorns. By sheer willpower and effectiveness we try  to push through our struggles with a fix-it-myself attitude. But curiously, that mentality has a way of isolating us, and before we know it, we end up alone, buried by our circumstances. But rather than […]

Life Lessons From Sports | All Streaks Come to an End

Last night, Morgan William slayed the giant. The 5-foot-5-inch junior point guard from Mississippi State hit the game-winning jumper in overtime to defeat the UConn Huskies and broke one of the greatest streaks in sports history.

He’s in the midst of some […]

Moments That Redefine Culture

There are moments in our lives that stand alone. As ill-prepared as we might be, they happen anyway. These moments represent a coming-of-age, leaving change in their wake. They are a dividing line between the way things used to be and the way things are now. In these moments, people rally around a cause and culture as we know it is redefined. These moments unite us. Rosa Parks refuses to move from her seat on a Montgomery, Alabama bus Neil […]
