THE #1 REASON SELF-HELP PROGRAMS DON’T WORK

Arguably, not every self-help guru is going to connect with every person on the planet. We all have different learning styles and personality preferences.

MEMORY GARDEN

Much like a memory collage, my belief is that a memory garden serves to facilitate a way for family and friends to enjoy memories of their loved one. A memory garden is a place of healing. It allows one to suspend life and to walk or sit in solitude while reflecting on the person who […]

WHEN THE KILLER IS YOUR SON

My heart is broken for the families of the three Moncton RCMP who were recently killed. I empathize with the path they are on and hold them in my thoughts and prayers. There is honour in knowing these officers died serving in the way they wanted to; however, the heartbreak of living without these men […]
