As the coach of the team, it is my responsibility to know the offense of the other team, their defense, their tactics and possible sneak plays. In knowing these things, I need to have my own offense, defense and special tactics that I can use against the other team.
As women move, they talk! It is a proven fact that women use roughly 20,000 words a day compared to that of 7,000 for a man. I am praying that as my wife moves about throughout her day, that the words that she speaks are good and are doing good for someone. I pray that she will be helping others in good deeds.
I was invited to eat with a group of men tonight that will be speaking, attending or serving in some capacity with the “Why Me?” men’s conference in Thomaston, Georgia next Friday and Saturday.

They are not something that you can sample along the way like adding to much or to little salt. They have no gauge that is built in that shows your level of input and an absorption rate. So, when is it enough?
There have been few things in life that really impress me. But I must admit that the Teach Them Diligently Convention this year in Washington, DC has done just that! From the beautiful surroundings of the Gaylord Hotel and Resort, the perfect weather, the outstanding speakers and the awesome children’s program, I will say that I am in awe.
