Dear Friend,

I hope you’re doing well. Welcome to the December newsletter.

Personal Update

My Personal Update for December is now available. If we’re not already connected on Facebook, I invite you to Like my page and also visit my website.


Here are some articles from this past month, including several about the election results. Some of the content is from other people (as indicated), but most are articles I’ve written. During the election and after, I’ve tried to maintain an open mind and positive attitude. I’m supportive of multiple candidates, even those offering competing messages. I look for opportunities to connect and have a positive impact.

Heart Songs

In February of 2011, I launched the website as a growing online collection of inspiring music videos. As a result, I hear from new and rising artists who would like help promoting their music. It’s a great opportunity to hear from new talent before they are ‘discovered.’ This month’s Heart Songs selection is “You Saved Me” performed by A C Ivery, who submitted the video to be featured on the site. The singer asked me to help share the video. I was impressed with the quality, the singing, and the music. Not all videos on the Inspiring Music Videos website are religious, but this video has a religious message. Note: There may be advertising preceding the videos that’s outside my control — it’s determined by YouTube and the user who uploaded the videos.

Thanks. I want to thank the global team of volunteers, contributors, and workers “behind the scenes” who help make all this possible. I’m very grateful to the many people who continue to uphold and advance the mission of Resources for Life. Thanks again for your support. Please let me know if there is any way that Resources for Life can serve you better.
