It's Our Turn: Building a solid foundation
Never underestimate the power one choice can have on the direction of your life. About 12 years ago, my wife and I made one of those decisions when we decided to homeschool our son. At the time, we weren't really sure what to do, other than that we knew we wanted to avoid the public...

IT'S OUR TURN: Have you had 'the talk' yet?
We are all going to die — some sooner than others. It's inevitable. We don't live forever. So why not have "the conversation" with your loved ones before the need arises. What are those conversations, you may ask? You know, the ones about what their wishes are. And I am not...

IT'S OUR TURN: A Christmas Eve surprise
Excruciating pain and unexpected kindness. They both came together for me on Christmas Eve. As I was getting ready for bed around midnight on Dec. 23, I felt a sharp ache in my left molar. Knowing it was too late to do anything so late, I consulted Google. It provided a home remedy...
