You have heard it said you are as close to God as you want to be – you are as close to your family as you want to be too.

In a society hell bent on choosing to focus on themselves rather than the greater good, we cannot help but lose our families while we are trying to pursue our GOOD LIFE. America was built by families who wanted a better life for their children. They didn’t come to America to survive, they came to thrive and live the dream.
