Shut In, Shut Out & Shut Down

We have no choice, we must comply with the orders of this national historical happening; governments, both state and federal, have implemented a “stay in place” order.

Bringing Truth To The Table

In a world as crazy as the one that exists, most people will tell you that the one thing they want most, is to just be happy. Being happy doesn’t have to be difficult. Being happy isn’t always easy, either. Although being happy sounds simple, for many, it can be a serious challenge. For someone…
