Life offers difficulties and multiple uncertainties.  What’s more, no one knows the hour when we will be called by God out of this world.  So how do we live?

Answer:  Fully alive in the present moment!

How?

  • Perform a daily diagnostic.  It’s called an Examination of Conscience.
  • Dare to share your heart.  Say “I love you” to the people in your life!
