How to enjoy social media 100% more.

By Jon Acuff

I will forever be grateful to social media for what it has done for my career. There are parts of it I hate though, like the vortex of negativity ...

Lifelong Kindergarten

By Josh Linkner
Peeking into a typical kindergarten classroom, you'll see a vibrant setting of creativity and collaboration. The colorful setting is messy, playful, and expressive as students smile with delight and their imaginations run free.

By Phil Valentine

You wonder why the Democrats aren't rushing to Joe's defense over accusations of inappropriate touching? The truth is the socialist wing of the Democrat Party is behind the political assassination of Joe Biden.Anvil Joe is what we call him.
