Laughter heals your heart.


Laughter is a key ingredient in good health. Being able to laugh at ourselves, our mistakes and seeing the comic relief in all things will draw others to you and ease your mind. Look for mirth when you are angry or exasperated with your spouse or children. God gave us a life to enjoy, not to be disgruntled about. Jesus said He gives us His peace and that we do not need to be afraid. Anger stems from fear and hurt. Give Him your troubles, your anger, your unhappiness and let Him solve your concerns and heal your heart. Enjoy life and leave anger behind. See the comedy in life and embrace your peace and happiness. Love, laugh and live abundantly and with joy.


John 14:27 NKJ

Jesus said "My peace I leave with you, my peace I give you. Not as the world gives you, but as I give you. Let not your heart be troubled, be not afraid."

Love the Life you Live.

Part 2:




Knowing our Lord is essential in Living a full life, loving yourself and loving and serving others.

I was privileged to participate in a two week pilgrimage to Israel with a group of extraordinary pastors and Christians. This trip was a spiritual milestone for me as I was able to see, touch, hear and fully embrace my Lord's home land. Here is my movie of the journey, in hopes that it to will help you to understand who our dear Lord is and have a personal glimpse of His home and His heart.


Matthew 21:22

Life is a gift given to us by God. He loves you so much and He has provided you with everything you need to live a full and thriving life.

God has left us a love letter, His Bible, which is His inspired word to share with us who He is, how much He loves us and how we can traverse life's challenges and obstacles and live a full and abundant life! If you want to start Loving the Life you Live, you need to start by learning who God is and what His promises are to you. This series will guide you, please read Jeremiah 29:11-14 and John 3:16.

Just a footnote, I needed some technical support from Vistaprint. My technician thanked me for the Jeremiah reference as he said it touched his heart and was an answer to his prayers today. Please let God's word minister to you.

The Crown of Thorns.

This delicate plant is the plant our dear Lord wore on His head during His crucifixion. Please remember His sacrifice to us during these 40 days of Lent. Remember His love, His healing, His discernment and His sacrifice so that we might have a lasting and loving relationship with our Father in heaven.

Merry Christmas!

Welcome to my site. I am guessing that you didn't go on KPC to read a bunch of fluff on coaching and counseling. I believe that you are looking for answers and more importantly, help. Do I have all the answers, no? Will I help you to find them? Yes. I bet your wondering how. Through a process of talking with you, assessing what is happening in your life and in the life of those who are important to you, looking at your goals, and determining together, how we can reach them. I can't accomplish this on my own. Believe me, I have tried in my own life and it doesn't work. I believe in the power of prayer and I also believe (because I have seen the results many, many times) that our dear Lord loves you and He will provide the answers, intervention and the help you are looking for. With our hard work and prayers you will see that He can and will provide miracles in your life. Are you ready for a miracle? If so, then please give me a call. (908) 917-5593
