How to Deal with a Backseat Driver

If there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s driving around town with my Dad when he visits. According to him, I brake too hard, sit too long at stop signs and drive (his words) like a grandma. Well excuse me for trying to be a safe driver!

How to Be Happy, Seriously

How to Be Happy, Seriously

Is happiness the key to life?

For many, it is. But it’s so easy to get caught up worrying about our own happiness.

We can actually turn happiness into an idol that we worship, without even realizing it.

I’m not going to go into the religious implications of that, but I’m sure you would agree that idols aren’t the healthiest things to form. And you’re right. Regardless of your religious or spiritual beliefs, happiness makes a terrible idol.

There is a way to achieve happiness without idolizing it, and it’s actually easier than you may think.
