Testimonial:"Very Knowledgeable"

Ron helped me several times with my insurance needs. I found him to be very knowledgeable. He explained my coverage to me where I could understand it. Ron was very pleasant and easy to talk to and I have referred him to several friends and will continue to do so."

The Dark Candle

The Dark Candle A man had a little daughter, his one and only beloved child. So when she became ill and the illness resisted the efforts of the best doctors, he became a man possessed, moving heaven and earth to restore her health.

His best efforts proved fruitless and the child died. The father was totally irreconcilable. He became a bitter recluse, shutting himself away from his many friends and refusing every activity that might restore his poise and bring him back to his normal self.

Then one night he had a dream. He was in heaven and saw a grand pageant of all the little child angels. They were marching in an endless line past the Great White Throne. Every white-robed, angelic tot carried a candle. He noticed, however, that one child's candle was not lit. He then realized that the child with the dark candle was his own little girl. He rushed to her, held her in his arms, caressed her tenderly, and asked, "Why is your candle the only one that's not lit?"

"Father, they often relight it, but your tears always put it out again," she said.

Just then he awoke from his dream. The lesson was crystal clear, and its effects were immediate. From that hour on he was no longer a recluse, but mingled freely and cheerfully with his former friends and associates. No longer would his little darling's candle be extinguished by his useless tears.

The Coffee or the Cup?



A group of computer engineers, highly established in their careers, got together to visit their old university professor. Conversation soon turned into complaints about stress in their work and life in general.

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went into the kitchen and returned with a large pot of coffee and an assortment of cups, some ordinary looking, some expensive, some exquisite. He told them to help themselves to the coffee.

When all the students had a cup of coffee in their hands, the professor said, "If you will notice, all the nice looking, expensive cups were taken up, leaving behind the plain and cheap looking ones."

While it is but normal to want only the best for yourselves, that is the source of your problems an stress. What all of you really wanted was coffee, not the cup, but you consciously went for the best cups and worse, you were eyeing each other's cups."

"Now if life is coffee, then the jobs, money and position in society are the cups. They are just tools to hold and contain life, but the quality of life doesn't change. Sometimes by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee in it."

So the moral of the story is: Don't let the cups drive you, enjoy the coffee instead.




Dear Clients & Friends,

Isn't it great that both Veterans Day and Thanksgiving fall on the same month? Perhaps nothing is taken more for granted than those who have fought to maintain the freedoms we enjoy in this country.

Other things to be grateful for are life and good health. So when it comes to covering ourselves and our loved ones in the event of loss, is your insurance coverage adequate? What can I do to help?

If all you need is a little advice, I'm happy to help. If you need more than that, I'm ready with the answers you need. Give me a call today.

Make Veterans Day Special

July

Veterans Day in 2017 is on Saturday, the 11th of November. In the United States, Veterans Day is usually observed on November 11. However, if it occurs on a Sunday then the following Monday is designated for holiday leave, and if it occurs on a Saturday then either Saturday or Friday may be so designated. In 2017, Veterans Day falls on a Saturday, so Friday, the 10th of November is considered a federal holiday.

Veterans Day originated as "Armistice Day" on November 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and November 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938.

How can you celebrate Veterans Day? Fly the flag! Also, consider these activities:

1. Celebrate with service. Show service members your gratitude throughout the year with a home-cooked meal, thank you note or day of volunteering.
2. Support veteran-owned businesses. Websites like buyveteran.com can help you identify such businesses in your area.
3. Express thanks.

This week, make Veterans Day special at your home or work. Help our nation remember its veterans.

Altrua HealthShare

Every day, thousands discover Health Care Sharing Ministries as a positive solution to health insurance. Sharing ministries similar to Altrua HealthShare have been around for nearly thirty years, and billions of dollars of health care needs have been shared by fellow members. Health Care Sharing Ministries are NOT insurance but in several ways can operate similarly. Sharing ministries are faith-based and members are called to abide by a certain set of standards established through the member guidelines and the application of a Statement of Faith or Statement of Standards particular to each individual Health Care Sharing Ministry. As a member of a Health Care Sharing Ministry (HCSM), one is considered by the medical profession to be a self-pay patient. Self-pay patients typically enjoy lower costs than are charged to health insurance companies. HCSM members do not participate in subsidizing or paying for certain lifestyles that continue to add to the rising costs associated with insurance companies. Members of a sharing ministry remain self-pay, but they benefit from having other members who believe in caring for one another through the Health Care Sharing Ministry.

Altrua HealthShare is unique in that it does not require a pastor, elder or representative from one's local church to sign an acknowledgement verifying church attendance or the validation of the medical need being submitted to the membership for sharing. Members of Altrua HealthShare do not have to wait on other members to send individual checks to them for the sharing in their medical needs. The members of Altrua HealthShare can rest assured that each eligible medical need submitted to the membership will be shared in accordance to the members' escrow account instructions and the member guidelines.

Altrua HealthShare and its membership opportunities are developed and based on biblical guidelines established for living a healthy and honorable lifestyle according to godly principles. Altrua HealthShare does not lean towards one denomination, religion or walk of faith. Altrua HealthShare leaves the convictions of each individual to honor the Statement of Standards for becoming a member.

Altrua may be just the solution you are looking for. Give us a call at (678) 464-8602 for more information or click here to download a brochure.

3 Great Thanksgiving Tips

Around this time of year, you see all kinds of tricks to save time and effort preparing your Thanksgiving feast. Foodnetwork.com created a list of "10 Sanity-Saving Thanksgiving Tips, Tricks and Hacks" that you might find interesting. 

Here are a few of them:

Ice Chest as a Fridge: Because most refrigerators simply don't have enough room to handle the amount of food you need to keep cool as you prepare your Thanksgiving dinne

r, try using your ice chest. Food Network recommends clearing all the dressings and pickle jars from your refrigerator and storing them in the garage--making room for the ingredients you'll need for your feast. And the best part is you can also convert an ice chest to an insulated food warmer simply by using aluminum foil and a little common sense. Give this a try. 

Thermos as a Gravy Warmer: It seems obvious, but maybe you've never tried using your thermos to keep gravy warm until just before you pour the gravy into a gravy boat.

Salad Bar as a Sous Chef: It's not cheating to buy ingredients from your local supermarket salad bar. Imagine the work you'll save simply by buying your ingredients already cleaned, chopped or sliced.
