Making a list and checking it twice, as you manage home, family, friends and business during the holiday season? Do you feel sometimes like you are not giving enough? Do you feel you need more time, energy or money? You are not alone! Think about what you can do that serves family, friends and business.
Ahhh, it’s that time of the year again. The holiday traditions take us home for the holidays to reunite with parents, siblings, cousins and old friends. Often this experience is joyous and as it should be, a time to appreciate one another, reminisce about the past and enjoy food, wine, gifts and conversation.

How can you save $5,000 when you close on your new home and continue the savings for the life of the loan? It is very easy. FHA loans have become more and more expensive, so lenders have come up with conventional options to FHA financing. FHA continues to increase the cost of mortgage insurance premiums, which adds hundreds of dollars to the monthly mortgage payment pricing some buyers out of the market for a new home. Lenders are now offering 3 percent down conventional loans, which do not require 1.75 percent of the loan amount up front.

At the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC), like any other elected body, we sometimes have differing opinions.

The unnamed woman with the weathered face stands on the corner of the street with her cardboard sign. The sign, like so many others around town reads, “Homeless and hungry. Anything helps. God bless.” Short and to the point the staccato sentences lay out the problem, tell us we have no excuse for not sharing something, and digs into our deepest held values. She doesn’t smile, but periodically salutes the oncoming traffic in a confident parody of Nixon’s classic V sign for victory, and of course, peace. Her gaze is largely fixed on the distance, as if mesmerized by the strip of shimmering pavement, interspersed by the bright shots of color as the vehicles flow by. Discretely hidden somewhere close by is her bicycle, and a few bags with her belongings. She’s not alone. Across the street is the man in whose company she’s often seen riding. They seem to trade off on corners, begging for relief, and preaching the gospel in silence.
If you liked last summer’s block buster, “Gone Girl,” by Gillian Flynn, you might like “The Silent Wife,” by A.S.A. Harrison, a debut paperback novel published in June but quickly climbed the best-seller charts. Called one of the summer’s sleeper hits, one reviewer says, “It ensnares the reader on page one and doesn’t let go.” Even if you didn’t read “Gone Girl,” but like psychological suspense based on an unusual relationship, this might be the page-turner you are looking for.

Space matters. Inner space, outer space, living space, worship space, green space, and personal space, it all matters. Ask anyone who’s lived in high density housing, like the projects, just how much space matters. Watch the news for a wake-up call on how living space can mean the difference between a chance at healthy living, and a high probability of disease. But our living space isn’t just about square footage in our home, the size of our yard, or the size of our office. As a matter of spiritual health, we also have to be attentive to our inner space, because that space governs so much of how we function in all the other spaces of daily life.
