What Would Jesus Do?

Jesus was an incredible teacher of divine love. Through his teachings we learn that we can all have a direct relationship with God giving us access to our divine human potential.

To Compartmentalize, or Not To Compartmentalize

When I was younger, I remember my mother saying that sometimes she and my father could be having a fight that felt so big to her right before he was supposed to leave for a trip, and he could totally put it out of his mind and go fly a plane.
