Give Thanks to Boost Productivity

Monday, November 23, 2015

With Thanksgiving just a few days away, the topic of gratitude has been on a lot of people’s minds. Life can get hectic, and it’s a good reminder, no matter what your current reality is like, to take a moment to appreciate the good things, big and small. It can be something like being grateful for your friends and family, or even simple little things like being grateful for an internet connection that works when you  have to turn in a paper.

Prayers for the World

Monday, November 16, 2015
