Keeping a Good Attitude


Nowadays, you see them everywhere—funny cat videos and pictures.

They’re popular because they make people smile.  People love to smile and laugh. But there are times when it doesn’t matter what’s going on around it, it’s your choice what your attitude and your mood are going to be.

Research shows only three out of 10 of the dads in America are functioning to serve their family according to how the Bible teaches.
