Are You Living to Die and Dying to Live?

I am excited to introduce you to a new friend of mine. Omer Redden and I are both members of the Writing Course, called Tribewriters. I had opened up my site for Guest Writers and he approached me.

Do You Need More Joy?

Do You Need More Joy?

One of the many things we chase after as human beings is joy. I admit I seek joy just as much as the next person.
