Spiritual progress is the most important aspect of life, for life with God is the only life that is truly life. So let me share with you some spiritual goals for this year.
  • If Democrats are optimistic as 2019 begins, it is understandable.
  • The Iowa caucuses, Round One in the quadrennial exercise leading to the election of a president, are still a year away, but Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts delivered a fix this week for Democrats who can’t wait to get started on the considerable task of deposing Donald Trump.
  • Donald Trump may watch the stock market more closely than any day trader.
