Following rules is always better than making judgements.

This does not imply that following the rules will always lead to success as you define it, but following rules will more often lead to success than making judgements will.

“I tend not to alter the way I speak depending on my audience. I talk to drunks as though they were sober, foreigners as though they had an English vocabulary to match mine, and small children as though they were sane. By and large I find that people rise to the occasion.” – Lindybeige

Lindybeige is the alter ego of one Nikolas Lloyd, who has a very fascinating Youtube channel.

Such a simple statement. Wish I had said it first.

Why We Homeschool Our Kids

3 Reasons Why You Should Consider it Too

Educating your child is the most important job you have as a parent. There are many ways to educate a child. Most people choose to outsource their child’s education either to the state, letting their child be educated by the public school system, or to a private institution, or to a professional individual, such as a private tutor.

The ideal solution is to educate your child yourself.

Correcting Feet and Correcting Subluxations

I have never liked the idea of orthotics. Orthotics are crutches, merely masking symptoms and compensating weaknesses instead of actually fixing a problem.

10 Lessons I Wish I’d Learned in Chiropractic School

Passing the boards is only the first step, though and it’s not really that pivotal of a step in the grand scheme of being a health care provider. Like any education system, exams like national board exams show whether you are a good test taker rather than showing whether or not you are a good, or will be a good and competent chiropractor.

Whenever the new thinking, however weak and anemic, becomes the common thinking, the mind becomes quick to lock out the old thinking as “impossible” or “not practical or desirable.”

The Conviction of Things Not Seen

Faith, according to Hebrews 11:1 is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. You might be tempted to think this means that faith exists without proof. That’s a bit short-sighted, but you wouldn’t be alone.

The dictionary definition even states that faith is the firm belief in something for which there is no proof. That is neither accurate, nor fair.
