Charlton Heston & Clip On Ties: My Childhood Easter Memories

Easter is one of those times of year when in our culture when there are things you are “supposed to do” simply because it’s Easter.

Kids will turn milk jugs into partially open rabbit heads built for the sole purpose of finding colored plastics eggs filled with candies and treats galore.

Facebook is filled with screaming toddlers in the lap of a giant bunny that resembles a college mascot more than a gentle steward of Spring and new life...

So...here's my worst india recruitment story for you to enjoy.

Stories & Star Wars

While I realize that not everyone likes Star Wars, I’m pretty sure that everyone does like a good story, and when we hear one, something inside of us wants others to hear it as well.

Stories are written for the purpose of being read. Stories are told in order to be heard. And when stories are shared with others, they become a common experience that deepens relationships, and can make fast friends of strangers...
