A new year almost certainly means new algorithm changes to your most-used social media platforms, and Facebook is no different this year. Mark Zuckerberg recently announced Facebook’s 2018 goal: “making sure the time we all spend on Facebook is time well spent.” With that comes a major algorithm change that has many business page owners calling it the “Newsfeed Apocalypse.”

Deep within every one of us resides a longing for significance. We want our lives to matter, to make a lasting impact.

Until that time, we seek worth and significance from other people, possessions, and power.
In my book Choose Wisely, Live Fully, I point out, “Reading through Proverbs we see the guidelines God has given us for living. He has made it very clear. So why do we have a hard time believing or obeying? We… read more »
Two very different worlds collide, and Miriam and Mark begin to question if love can bring them—and their two worlds—together in Barbara Cameron’s new book, Seeds of Hope. Miriam Troyer has had a secret crush on Mark Byler since she was a teenager, but she knows they can never have a relationship: Mark is a big-city attorney and an Englischer.
