Monday Motivation: Golden Rule

Monday Motivation: Golden Rule #DALANEL


Stop me if you heard this before: Treat others the way you want to be treated. Blah, blah, blah.

You heard it before, most likely.

It’s really simple.

Treat people the way you want to be treated. Look at people as if you’re constantly looking into a mirror. Do you love the person you see? Would you say hurtful things to that person or give encouragement?

Yes, I know you’re the sexiest beast out…

Thoughts on starting a new blog

Thoughts on starting a new blog. Here’s what I did to launch #DALANEL


I’ve been blogging for just several years now. I wanted to share some thoughts on what I would do if I wanted to start a new blog.

When I first started DALANEL, it was called Dante’s Opinion, as some of you already know. This wasn’t my first blog I started, but, this is the most successful.

You have probably run into articles telling you how to start a blog. This post is not like those. This is…

Good News Friday: Company freely heating homes for winter #DALANEL #PositiveNews

Don’t you love it when companies show their human side? Here’s how it goes down:

People are nominated for a new furnace before being selected by furnace maker Lennox Industries. From there, Lennox recommends a home in need to its local dealers, who ultimately choose the most deserving household.

“Most deserving”? Well, alright. But still, this has been a very productive plan and people are very…

Wednesday Word: Living by Faith

Wednesday Word: Living by Faith #DALANEL #ShortSermon

Wednesday Word 2.001

Are you new here? Wednesday Word is where I post a short sermon and then give my commentary.

Okay, so living by faith.

She started off with an excellent point. By faith, we become Christians. We look at this story of a virgin giving birth to a baby that would save the world. We didn’t see this. Yet, we believe it.

Tuesday Testimony: A Miraculous Encounter

Tuesday Testimony: A Miraculous Encounter #DALANEL #Testimony


My life was radically transformed when God encountered me while I was in college. Growing up, I never really believed in God although I was raised in a Christian home. Being preoccupied with life and not being able to ‘see’ our God during church service made me doubt his existence.

Monday Motivation: Forgive

Monday Motivation: Forgive #DALANEL




I want to push you to forgive those that have wronged you. Understand that forgiving is not the same as accepting.

Forgiveness is for the victim more than the offender, especially if the offender doesn’t even realize what he’s done. For instance, you are walking down the street, somebody innocently bumps into you. He says sorry. He didn’t mean it, and he’s sleeping tonight.
