Your purpose will shape your most significant contribution.

“You must have one great purpose of existence . . . to make your talents and your knowledge most beneficial to your country and most useful to mankind.”

You’ll train four days per week, focusing on speed and strength. You may not be familiar with some of the explosive exercises such as speed squats or power cleans, so take the time to learn the form precisely.

Annie believed in and followed Christ with all her heart, but it was her hands that expressed that belief in tangible ways. She spent a great amount of time typing and handwriting letters in support of missions. Many of these letters were quite lengthy and all were filled with conviction that more could and should be done in our missions efforts. Annie also never hesitated to use her hands to reach out to hug a child or distribute food, clothing and the Word of God to those in need.

Richie Sambora suggested he started becoming unhappy with the way Bon Jovi were progressing as early as 1985.

He quit the band acrimoniously in 2013 but later settled his differences with singer Jon Bon Jovi, and teamed up with his former colleagues at their induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last month.

I find myself walking 13 miles a week. No joke: 13 miles a week. Honestly, you find yourself thinking of so much stuff when you’re walking because, first of all, it’s quiet. When I walk, I don’t walk with my music. I just want to listen to the birds chirping, and the wind. I have peace of mind. It’s like therapy.

*Try this spinach and artichoke dip. Take a long walk afterwards.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
