If you have ever watched “Alice in Wonderland” you probably remember the immortal words of the unpunctual White Rabbit, “I’m late, I’m late, for a very important date!” Whether you are looking forward to college or are already there, now is the time to make it a habit to be early to whatever task, meeting, appointment, party, and class you must attend. I can tell you, now being in the professional world and from my time in college, that if you have somewhere to be, you do not want to be running behind. It’s why I am now committed to the “five minute rule.”
I love my job. Yes, I’m only three months into my new role in church communications, but I’m beginning to scratch the surface of passions I began exploring not too long ago in video production, storytelling, and helping churches communicate their message clearly and effectively. I’m finding purpose and freedom to learn, grow,and be creative in my new role. But, the longer I live in the “real world” of jobs, careers, and long workweeks, I’m finding find that more and more people just don’t relate to the lyrics of a well-known country song, “Doin’ what I love and lovin’ what I do.”

For more than 10 years I have been attending an Alzheimer meeting at the Lutheran church.

I want to help caregivers (CGs) who are suffering.

Based on his four feature films, it’s clear that Spike Jonze’s mind is nothing short of an endlessly inventive wonderland. He brought two of the most creative screenplays ever written to life in “Being John Malkovich” and “Adaptation.” In “Where the Wild Things Are,” he took a 48-page picture book and transformed it into one of the most emotionally complex family movies of all time. “Her,” the director’s latest outing, is simply a revelation of imagination.
The chapter of 2013 is closed, and by the time this ‘Tukee Talk is published 2014 will be 10 days old, meaning many are still trying to stick to their New Year’s resolutions.
Thinking ahead can save people a lot of trouble when it comes to New Year’s Eve celebrations. The biggest warning from experts is to find a designated driver.
Luke’s Gospel has the fullest account of Jesus’ birth. In Luke 2:11 an angel of the Lord says, “To you is born this day a Savior … who is the Messiah, the Lord.” It’s easy to miss the operative words “to you.”
Most of us have cell phones and likely have had a complaint or two about coverage, billing or spam. You’ve been letting me know about it for months.
When you start out in your career, you’re probably not thinking much about retirement. At this point, your picture of a “retirement lifestyle” may be, at best, hazy, hidden as it is behind a veil of experiences you’ve yet to encounter. But as you move through the years, your view of retirement comes into clearer and closer focus — and this vision will have a big impact on your savings and investment strategies.
Let the countdown begin! As of today, it’s officially T-minus (take 25, then subtract today’s date) days until Christmas. Are the stockings hung? Lights up? Christmas cards in the mail? Regardless if you’re prepared or not, the “most wonderful time of the year” is in full swing.
There was a disc jockey, a pig, and not nearly enough blankets to combat the cold.
Are you a member of the “Sandwich Generation?” This designation — which applies to people caring for their aging parents while supporting their own children — may be applicable to you if you’re either a younger baby boomer, born in the late 1950s or early 1960s, or an older member of “Generation X,” born in the mid-1960s. But any way you slice it, being in the “Sandwich” group is probably going to present you with some challenges, particularly of the financial kind — so you’ll need to make the right moves.

As we approach Thanksgiving, and the weeks that seem to race towards Christmas, there’s plenty to be grateful to God for in our lives. Thanksgiving invites us to take time to consider all of our blessings. While some of us may be thrilled with the material things of life, many of us look around and realize that the most important things in life aren’t things at all. They’re our relationships. That’s our relationship with God in Christ Jesus, as well as our relationships with family, friends, and neighbors. Shortly after Thanksgiving, Christians begin another season of intentional reflection: the season of Advent. Since we’re giving thanks and taking time to celebrate all our relationships, let’s take a closer look at the one relationship that changed the world.
For years we’ve known Andrew “Dice” Clay is “The Undisputed Heavyweight King of Comedy” and he’s ready to deliver a knockout punch to fans at Gila River Casino this Saturday, Nov. 30. The Diceman kindly gave the Ahwatukee Foothills News an exclusive interview because he knows we’re probably going to laugh at all of his jokes.

This year has been a great one for my friends who are royal headline watchers. Who doesn’t love to hear about the arrival of a healthy baby? Many of the stories were similar to what we would have heard 20 years ago, but one in particular was both modern and interesting.
For the past 30 years, I have been a literacy advocate. During the summer of 1983, I learned that my grandfather was illiterate.
Even my own mother scoffed at the idea of her obviously European-looking daughter confessing she celebrated Día De Los Muertos.
