Why we pretend to need God much less than we actually do

It’s easy to shrug off what other people consider divine. We assume that God is unrelated to the everyday things that happen to us. We feel like we’ve got things figured out, life is what it is, and we don’t really need God. So we diminish the importance of building a relationship with him because of some of these reasons:

Action speaks louder than words: How we set examples for our children

I ran my first marathon a week before my youngest daughter turned one. Never in her memory has there been a time when I didn’t dress primarily in spandex, consume copious amounts of gels and energy chews, or spend the dark early hours of a Saturday morning out on a run.

For many individuals in this circumstance, reverse mortgages are attractive because of their ability to provide access to home equity, while retaining the borrower's right to live in their home. However, reverse mortgages are complex financial products that carry significant impacts on the long ...
