The Sack of Potatoes

I remember a valuable life lesson one of my college professors taught us using a sack of potatoes. For every person we had refused to forgive in our life, we were told to choose a potato, write that person’s name on it, and put it in a plastic sack. Some of our sacks, as you can imagine, were quite heavy. We were then told

The Stethoscope

A nurse on the pediatric ward, before listening to the little ones’ chests, would plug the stethoscope into their ears and let them listen to their own heart.

Gently, she tucked the stethoscope into his ears and placed the disk over his heart. “Listen,” she said.

Bibs or Aprons?

Bibs for baby. Childcare in the home products.

I recently visited a fast-growing church in Minnesota to learn from their staff. One of the phrases that I heard while I was there was, “We want our members to wear aprons, not bibs.” Here’s what they meant: Bibs are for people who only want to be fed.
