Making It Through ‘Three-Dog’ Nights!

Print or EmailTheDiscipleMD Like many people my age, when I hear the term “Three dog night” I think of the 1970’s superstar rock band of the same name.

The Hakuna Matata Lifestyle

Print or EmailThe DiscipleMD The other night my three-and-a-half year old granddaughter asked me to put on “The Lion King”, so I did. Then she wanted me to watch it with her, which I also did. As I lay on the floor, she curled up next to me and laid her head on my shoulder […]

Till You Find Your Dream!
