Feeling Good About Ourselves

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 8, 2018

Ok, here’s one to store in your head and your heart . . . We feel good about ourselves when we do the right thing. It just happens. When we push ourselves to fill out a totally truthful expense report or tax return, it happens. When we volunteer somewhere, giving our time and energy to…

The Platinum Rule

Posted by Regi Campbell on September 27, 2018

Everyone knows the golden rule. Here’s how contributors to Wikipedia explain it . . . “The Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as one would wish to be treated.

Tax Freedom Day? Come On, Man!

Posted by Regi Campbell on April 23, 2018

I don’t write about politics here, and I’m not starting now. But I will talk about Jesus and freedom and selfishness from time to time. I’m told that Tuesday is Tax Freedom Day . . . because 31% of the year has passed, which is the percentage of our national income that goes to pay…

Tackle the Tangles

Posted by Regi Campbell on March 22, 2018

My post last week, “What’s Unpacked Sometimes Unravels,” was the most unnatural thing I’ve ever written. I know it was wise, but so unlike me. I struggle to leave anything alone; I’m the world’s worst at leaving things unpacked. I want to set it straight and get it over with, so I can move on…

Why We Lie

Posted by Regi Campbell on February 19, 2018

Isn’t it weird how we lie? How we spin stories to present ourselves as the people we wish we were instead of who we are? Or how we sit quietly and perpetuate an untruth when we know it’s a lie? And we’ll do it with people we’ve known for years as quick as with total strangers….

Posted by Regi Campbell on January 29, 2018

This time of year, everybody’s working on something. Losing weight, getting in shape, making annual plans, cleaning out, organizing . . . something. I’ve been trying to ‘renew my mind’ by replacing negative thoughts with good, positive ones. I started with this list of adjectives from Philippians 4:8, where He’s telling me to choose ….

What’s the Source of Your Success?

Posted by Regi Campbell on October 26, 2017

Ok. Here’s a tough one for you . . . If you were to come into a bunch of money, would the people who know you be genuinely happy for you? Or this one . . . If you were to be honored with an award, like “Employer of the Year,” would your employees be…
