Keep your shoes snug without them feeling tight.
If you get blisters on your heels, or if your heels tend to slip around in your shoes when the trail gets rocky, there's an easy solution. You know that extra weird shoelace hole at the ankle of your running shoes? You can use it to tie a lace lock.

What better way to celebrate a man who believed, preached, and lived "Love our Neighbor" than to hit the streets with a Regional AmeriCorps Team...Elisha Project Style!!!

Parts of South Buffalo have vanished under 65 inches of snow this week. The average annual snowfall in Buffalo is about 94 inches.
A huge and deadly lake effect snow event has blitzed parts of New York over the past few days, dumping more than five feet of snow at a near-record pace, and up to three feet mo...

HOPE

Hope is an interesting subject for me. When I was a kid I hoped to serve my country. To make my parents proud. In the teams I hoped my teammates came home – but understood we may not. Now being a husband and father – perspective on Hope has changed quite a bit.

My current hope is to spend more time with my wife and kids. My biggest daily struggle is finding balance between work and family time. I absolutely understand the reason I go out and leave my family for days on end – to get the stories of my fallen brothers out to the public, to inspire, to give hope to someone who has completely lost it. I believe God gave me a purpose. Some people think because my experience is a book and a movie, it’s easy to talk about. It’s not and it never will be. The reason I do it is to motivate others and to keep my teammates memories alive. How do I pick a stopping point and close the door on my responsibility to my teammates?

I HOPE that one day, that is an easy choice to make. I HOPE my teammates and their families understand. I HOPE I don’t regret that decision when I make it. I HOPE their memories don’t fade when I do.

My day-to-day hope comes from my family. My kids are old enough to run when they see me and scream daddy when I come home – and I bend down and grab them and throw them around. Coolest damn feeling in the world! Wish I could make time stop and enjoy this a little longer before school and friends take up their time and I’m the embarrassing dad yelling from the audience at the school play or football game. I HOPE they understand and know how much I love them and hope I raise them to be God-fearing, respectful, intelligent, purposeful adults.

Focusing on Hope and Love is new for me. I guess you have to go through hell to find out what true happiness can be and to appreciate it. I thank God for showing me what love and hope is.

Google is offering the entire soundtrack to everyone living in the United States.
Look, in the months since Guardians of the Galaxy's box office dominance, we've all probably heard "Hooked on a Feeling" a few too many times. (Spotify puts the total stream count at over 16...
