I asked my Roman Catholic attorney buddy, James Beal, to share some of his writing for a wider audience, and he sent me this killer piece of aesthetic philosophy, "What is 'Christian' Art?" http://www.jacobheiss.com/2012/04/what-is-christian-art/

As requested and promised, here is the first post in a series of articles about building wealth in a sound, ethical, and broadly achievable way. This time around, we'll talk about the most basic lesson of all, and that is why (and to a certain extent, how) to gain command and control of the field of personal finance. Enjoy! http://www.jacobheiss.com/2012/02/gain-command-and-control-now-building-wealth-tip-no-1/

Valentines Day was originally a commemoration for martyrs, people butchered for their unyielding commitment to sharing God's love no matter what.

What does the beginning of the Jewish year have to do with the end of Moses? I set up a context to answer that question with this blog post while gushing about some sweet photos by Heather Blecher; check it out: http://www.jacobheiss.com/2011/09/the-end-of-moses-and-the-beginning-of-the-year-part-1/

Yes, painting a nice, blue arrow directly to my Google+ profile link at precisely the same time that facebook rolls out another ridiculous set of changes has certainly endeared me to the utility that much more.
