In the Bible, the book of Hebrews declares that marriage is honorable among all, but the number of people getting married for the 1st time has fallen to the lowest level since records began in 1862. Are we living in a generation that sees marriage as a liability? The figures from the Office for National Statistics showed that the average age for men to marry today is 36.2 and for women it is 33.6. Among people over 18, barely 50% of all adults are now married. In 1960, 72% of people over the age of 18 were married. Why are less people getting married? How will this decline impact us as a community?

I work with so many individuals who have accomplished such great and amazing things in their lives and are now wondering what to do next. Some of them have stated that they feel like they are missing something and are wondering, "Where do I go from here?"
I do not need permission from anyone to be better. When I change, the world changes with me! This is my personal affirmation. The positive change that I make in my personal life makes my public life better. It is within this hope that I am able to deal with life's up's and down's. This is a personal responsibility. Some people mistakenly look for change to take place outside of them. They wish that others would be different. They believe that this will make their life better. The truth is that real change takes place within us. In order to live life to its fullest, we must change what we see, say, and do. When we change, the world changes with us!
