Featured Spiritual Parable:
Story of an Assistance

My story took place more than a couple years ago, and the long term effects of the greeting was pivotal to my development. At the time, I was getting easily burnt out from work and I was at the mercy of the cycle of falling from grace on Monday and beginning my climb towards grace on Friday night.

Spiritual Movie Review:
Expiration Date

Expiration Date 
This is a wonderfully dark comedy about a young man preparing logistically and emotionally for imminent death on his 25th birthday due to a family curse. You see, his father and grandfather both were killed on their 25th birthdays... by milk trucks!

In facing death, Charlie must ultimately come to grips with reality and his life, not as it was or could be if he lived past his 25th birthday, but as it is here and now.

In following Charlie's journey during his last days, minutes, hours, and seconds, we too are reminded of the preciousness and intrigue of every moment regardless of whether we will live to see another one.

Spiritual Book Review:
Kiss of a Dolphin by Tom Tuohy

  Spiritual Book: Kiss of a Dolphin
This book will tug at your heartstrings, and just when you think it's tugged enough it tugs just a little bit more. This story is actually a compilation of stories leading up to creating the "Dreams for Kids" non-profit organization.

What started out helping children in the Chicago ghetto eventually became an organization giving to all disadvantaged kids, including the disabled. Just as importantly, this book is about all of the volunteers and the gifts that they receive as they help these kids live their dreams... dreams that many of them didn't think were even possible in this lifetime.

Reading this book begs the question: If some of these kids can accomplish what they have, not despite their disabilities, but because of them... what could everybody in this world accomplish with just a bit of help and a lot of heart?

Also note, all profits from the sale of this book go to supporting "Dreams for Kids."
