  • Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of men and women in the United States. In fact, more women die every year from heart disease than all cancers combined, including breast cancer.

  • Instead of waiting for tax refunds from the Internal Revenue Service, nearly 10 million consumers, many from low- to moderate-income families, borrow against part or all of their expected tax refunds.

  • Life is a series of choices. Success is basically a matter of making wise decisions. If you make dumb decisions you will fail in life. We make our decisions and then our decisions make us. Every decision has a consequence.

    The Psalmist says, “He guides me in the paths of righteousness ...” (Psalm 23:2). The Good Shepherd leads, guides, directs and keeps us on track if we will allow him. Doing God’s will brings peace within. God wants us to know his will more than we want to know it.
