I have a Bible verse propped up on my desk as a great reminder throughout the day. It reads, “I am the Lord, the God of all mankind. Is anything too hard for Me?” (Jeremiah 32:27). Of course the answer to that is a resounding NO! I would like to share a few encouraging stories that illustrate how nothing is impossible for God.
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.
Now that another year is ending, it’s a good time to take stock of where you are on your journey toward financial security. Of course, you could find many different “measuring sticks” to assess your progress, but you can certainly gain considerable information just by asking yourself some basic questions.

Have you ever walked through a season in your life you thought might break you? I’m not talking about the everyday stuff. We’re each going to wrestle with our share of broken air conditioners in July, cranky bosses, and family feuds. I’m talking about soul crushing, heart wrenching times when getting through the days takes a herculean effort. When you can’t lift yourself out of the pit despite all of your coping resources – faith, friends, family, chocolate ice cream. And wine, in the name of truth telling.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Sandra Bullock says making the lost-in-space movie "Gravity" with director Alfonso Cuaron was "the best life decision I think I ever made."
Beholding the late James Gandolfini doing a lovely job in a change-of-pace role significantly intensifies the already funny/sad aspects of "Enough Said," an engaging comic romance set amid the minefields that imperil starting up mid-life relationships. The title notwithstanding, writer-director Nicole Holofcener's look at a 50-ish divorced mother with a daughter about to leave home is never at a loss for words, many of them quite amusing, making the film a leading contender for best girls' night movie of the season. For their part, men will enjoy watching Gandolfini in a relaxed, self-effacing, regular guy performance.

Almost everyone would agree: Moving is a hassle. In addition to selling your current home and finding a new one, you may need to deal with a new school for your kids, a new doctor, a new dentist — the list goes on and on.

Within a marriage, a man and a woman’s financial circumstances are generally pretty much equal. But if a divorce occurs, the woman’s situation tends to be somewhat more challenging than that of her ex-spouse. And that’s why, during this major life transition, you may want to meet with a professional financial advisor to go over your spending needs and your cash flow, so that you know what you absolutely need today — and how you can plan for tomorrow.
If you are returning to the dating world after a long time away, or if you have not had the dating life you hoped for, maybe it’s time to try something different. Reflect on and apply these dating search ideas and practices and see if you experience more success and happiness in your dating life.
If you care about being part of your children’s lives, especially in their critically important decisions, you best pay attention to continued attacks on parental rights. There’s a frightening trend with products and laws, which usurp parent roles, thus undermining families. It’s clear where this is taking us.
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.

How much of your brain power is being applied to decreasing your financial vulnerability and increasing your financial know-how and well-being?
The Norwegian directing team of Joachim Roenning and Espen Sandberg, whose biopic of World War II resistance fighter Max Manus was a huge hit on home turf, have turned to another native hero for "Kon-Tiki." One of the most-vaunted escapades of the 20th century, Thor Heyerdahl's 1947 Peru-to-Polynesia expedition by raft gets glossy big-screen treatment in this efficiently told action-adventure. Delivering visual drama and understated character study, sometimes in disappointingly formulaic fashion, the feature has its incisive moments but falls short as both epic and intimate portrait.
