Tonight I had a break through that I had to share, it has motivated me to do another blog-miniseries. This time about dealing with and explaining the effects of traumatic brain injuries. A lot of people suffer from traumatic brain injuries and don’t really ever talk about it or express their frustrations unless they suffer from a severe or physically debilitating T.B.I. This is no way to go through life, communication is key in all aspects of life and relationships. I have found that most times I do not talk about my T.B.I. because I honestly don’t understand it. I know...

How I First Met God

Posted by on in For Families
I realize that not everyone believes in God. And I know that, of the many millions that do believe in God, not all believe in the Christ revealed in the Bible. And I respect them and care about them. However, for me, faith in my God was never an issue. I had a supernatural revelation as a small child. It is incredible to many, but it is reality to me. My parents did not attend church. However, one of them would wake up when I was little and drop me off at a church for use as free babysitting throughout the...

What To Do For Retirement

Posted by on in About
Ten years ago, I thought that my wife and were done with labor and were starting a life of ease. But we are nowhere near retiring.  God gave us a 'calling' late in life. It has required every ounce of our resources and strength. I sometimes wish I was in my twenties instead of my 60s. For ten years, we have been building and our 501c3 non-profit, Patriotic Hearts. We began next to Camp Pendleton Marine base, in Oceanside, where my grandpa and uncles were US Marines during WW II.   After a wounded US Marine knocked on our door and...

Avoiding Business Failure

Posted by on in Biz Ops
Some reasons why businesses fail miserably   Because there are very few good jobs, many Veterans are turning to building their own business. They have several opportunities...such as franchises, direct product marketing, offering service to existing businesses, even buying an established business where the owner is ready to retire... Whatever way you decide to go, you'll want to understand why a business can fail.  Through the years we observe businesses who start out with a lot off fanfare and excitement and then within a couple of years you are unable to find the slightest sign that business ever existed. This is often...

Why I Believe in Christ

Posted by on in News
I am a Christian. My parents weren’t. I was not raised to be one. I made this choice. And I have had multiple occasions throughout my life when I had to make the decision again to believe or not. I believe in the God of the bible for many reasons. Mostly because the Judeo-Christian God is the friendliest and most loving God offered among our world’s religions. Christianity basically says that no one can ever be good enough to earn the right to live eternally with God. It says that compared to his holiness, “all of our righteous deeds are like...
