Salt and Light - Episode 40: What kind of Olive tree are you?

October 11, 2018

The Psalm and the Gospel from the 27th Sunday in Ordinary time were the inspiration for this week's podcast. The Psalms don't usually get much attention in homilies or weekly commentaries, but we felt that this one in particular could not be overlooked. Do you know much about olive trees? In this episode you'll discover which one you might be and which one you might want to be and why.... and what on earth this has to do with the Gospel and the Christian life.

A New Truth - The 5 D’s For Success

October 11, 2018

We all admire successful billionaires and humanitarians. We want to study how they became rich and copy those steps, so we too can become successful.  For the last 7 years, I have had the privilege of interviewing highly successful people and I have seen the attributes they all have in common. I call those attributes, “The 5 D’s For Success.”  In reflecting on these 5 D’s for Success, I have wondered if they were transferable to other aspects of our lives beyond financial success. I will share how The 5’D’s For Success are applicable for the success of our Mind, Body, and Spirit.
