Financial information is the key to change.

Unfortunately, for most of us, basic financial information is not taught in schools. We live in a country that continues to pass out diplomas to people who lack healthy financial skills, creating a society not prepared to handle the financial ups and downs of everyday living. The road to financial freedom is paved with information; join me on my journey.

The Power of Strong Families

"Working families provide serious love.  Members learn self-love and self-worth in functional families.  Most importantly, a persons self-esteem is heightened in a family that is goal-oriented with members who are about the business of making life better.  Families do fruitful things together, thereby giving their members a sense of oneness and collective doing.  Families represent a lifeline among skyscrapers, clear water in sewage.

Families live in houses or apartments that they make into homes.  A family's home is a refuge from a hostile world.  When a person returns home, it is expected that he or she will find peace, welcome, warmth, food for body and mind, protection, love, support and rejuvenation.  It is said in Afrika that living is worthless for one without a home."

Children learn values and morals first in a family context.  Integrity, truthfulness, responsibility, honor and shame should be taught first in a family situation.  Therefore, ones philosophy of life is taught first at the family level.  Non functioning families will produce non-functioning people."

  2. Can I make a suggestion? I think youve got something good here. But what if you happen to added a couple links to a page that backs up what youre saying? Or perhaps you could possibly give us something to take a look at, something that might join what youre saying to one thing tangible? Just a suggestion. Anyway, in my language, there will not be much good supply like this.

  3. Refreshing thought. Children learns moral value first at home. It is important to create a harmony environment in a home.
