Ensuring Health


A guest post written by Ginny Nilsen When I recently saw a San Gabriel Valley Tribune article about insurance, it reminded me of when I told my parents that I was discontinuing my health insurance.

Remove God? Impossible!


A guest post written by Fran Esser Very often in the news we hear or read about one or more people wanting to remove God or any reference to God from the Pledge of Allegiance, from schools, government facilities, courtrooms, etc., claiming separation of church and state.
