When you hear the word Test, how do you respond? Does it trigger anxiety or excitement?Here are my top two tips for testing. The first one is CONSISTENTLY DO THE WORK.

 Isn’t modern technology amazing? Sometimes it feels like we’re in a science fiction movie. Think about it. We can talk and see someone from across the globe with our phone. Crazy, right?

My encouragement for whoever reads this post is to make more effort to be connected with their family this week.

We have all heard the phrase, let’s agree to disagree. Isn’t it great to be able to disagree with someone yet still walk away with mutual respect? This week, we will focus on improving our tolerance through patience and open mindedness.
