Lessons Learned from the Company Men

Bobby Walker (Ben Affleck) is living the traditional American dream: a great job as a top sales executive, a beautiful family, shiny Porsche in the garage. He is the type of guy who puts in a round of golf before his morning meeting.

When corporate downsizing leaves him, and co-workers Phil Woodward (Chris Cooper) and Gene McClary (Tommy Lee Jones) jobless, the three men are forced to re-define their lives as men, husbands and fathers.

Happy Easter!

Easter is when we, Christians, celebrate the resurrection of the Lord, Jesus Christ. It is typically the most well-attended Sunday service of the year for Christian churches.

Christians believe, according to Scripture, that Jesus came back to life, or was raised from the dead, three days after his death on the cross. 

Operation: Kindness

One day, a plane hit a storm and was about to crash. The problem was there were 4 passengers and only 3 parachutes. The first man took one parachute and said, “I’m a brain surgeon and my patients need me.” And he jumped off the plane.

The second man took the second parachute and said, “I’m a rocket scientist, one of the smartest men in the entire planet, and the world needs me. And he jumped off the plane.

When dreaming of a personal accomplishment, most people make the mistake of waiting...

     - waiting till they're better
     - waiting till they're hired
     - waiting till they've been given the assignment
