Besides, doing something good for others also helps you feel good:)

Today we question God's plan when we should Trust it even more. May God comfort the family both at home and at the station house. Thank you for your service may you rest in peace.

Today is Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive Day.

The second Saturday in May is the largest one-day food drive in the nation. How is this possible? It occurs in more than 10,000 cities and towns, and the food is collected by those men and women carrying our mail across the country.

As they deliver your mail you get to do your part by filling their mailbag with non-perishable food donations.

For more information, click here:

Life Insurance

Today is National Life Insurance Day. This day marks the anniversary of the first day life insurance became available in the United States.

Life insurance can do some pretty amazing things for people! It can buy loved ones time to grieve. It can pay off debts and loans, providing surviving family members with the chance to move on with a clean slate. It can keep families in their homes and pre-fund a child’s college education. It can keep a family business in the family. It can provide a stream of income for a family to live on for a period of time.

We have been providing life insurance for over 100 years. Call me today for more information. You can also check out the link below.

Maintaining a healthy diet is a piece of cake!

As are maintaining your finances for the future, right? Sometimes there is a lot of conflicting and confusing information out there. Call me today, I am happy to help you create a plan for your finances that is tailored specifically to you and your family!

Happy Earth Day today!

"This is how you shall make it: the length of the ark three hundred cubits, its breadth fifty cubits, and its height thirty cubits. You shall make a window for the ark, and finish it to a cubit from the top; and set the door of the ark in the side of it; you shall make it with lower, second, and third decks.

And of every living thing of all flesh, you shall bring two of every kind into the ark, to keep them alive with you; they shall be male and female.

Noah did according to all that the LORD had commanded him.

So they went into the ark to Noah, by twos of all flesh in which was the breath of life. Those that entered, male and female of all flesh, entered as God had commanded him; and the LORD closed it behind him."

Let's take care of our planet, so we can leave it in good hands for the next generation.
