What the Candy Crush App Taught Me About Life

If you have a smartphone or Facebook and haven’t heard of Candy Crush yet, I’m a bit shocked. It seems like everyone is playing it. Of course, it’s also one of those “new car” syndromes – I didn’t notice people were playing until after I started playing – like when you get a new Honda … Read more…

Struggles in This Life

We all go through struggles. For some of us, it’s with our weight. For others, possibly keeping the right job. For more, choosing the right foods to put into their mouths.
