Parents will get down to a child’s eye level and say, “Now focus on what I’m telling you.” The musician’s full attention is on the notes he’s playing, and the basketball coach is instantly aware of all player positions for maximum offense and defense.Continue Reading

At one point a while back I realized that my hearing was reduced in one of my ears. For over a month I prayed about this problem, but because results weren’t evident fear crept in.
