real problems

So, What’s the Problem? She asked…

So what’s the problem? That’s the exact question that my dear Mentor Diane Hale used to ask me when I get to this state of mind.

Mind Your Own Business by Diane Hale

Success Principle #10…Mind Your Own Business By Diane M. Hale March 8, 2010 ”…what is that to you? You follow Me” [John 21:22] Jesus had a way with words—He had a way of cutting to the chase and telling it like it is, principle #10 is a fine example.

Transformation by Diane Hale

Transformation Diane M. Hale Oct 30, 2009 Just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven.” [1 Corinthians 15:49] Out of the heart of Darwin came the thought of evolution—the acceptance of a theory of biological evolution and with it the reality that man’s mind in the midst of its darkness still yet knows a faint shadow of light which the darkness twists and man turns in on himself alone.
