Battle of the ‘Verts!

I’m an introvert in the truest sense of the word. Quite often, people take an introvert as someone who is socially anxious or shy. However, the biggest personalities can also be massive introverts. My introvertedness (not sure that’s a word!) didn’t stop me from pursuing acting as a young man, training people in my 30s... Continue Reading →

Truth

In general, it's better to tell the truth isn't it? There may very well be the rare example where telling an untruth is warranted but on the whole, the old adage, "Honesty is the best policy," is the correct way to go. Telling the truth very much includes being honest with ourselves.  In a recent... Continue Reading →

A Problem Shared

We had ants appear in our bathroom over the summer. I live in the UK so these ants are relatively harmless, but that doesn’t make them any less annoying.

People, like Wesley, who formed this club had became frustrated with aspects of the Church of England and wanted to reform parts of it. This 'Holy Club' soon developed the nickname “Methodists” because they were very intentional and methodical about their passion for,... Continue Reading →
