Reverse Mentoring

When you think of the word “mentor,” what comes to mind? Probably an older, more seasoned individual taking a younger novice under their wing and passing on wisdom to accompany their information. And that would be true. But what also is true is something known as “reverse mentoring.”

The Carvana Lesson

While the used car market remains strong, there is no more stimulus money, interest rates and inflation are at their highest in 40 years, the economy is close to a recession, and job cuts are coming in waves. Oh, and the supply chain issues for new cars have improved dramatically.

The Least of These

Vulnerable children in developing countries who are among the poorest of the poor are on the front lines for the devastation to come if we don’t take care of creation. The NAE report went on to outline four heartbreaking realities.

About Halloween (2022)

I grew up in a day when Halloween was little more than pumpkins, fall festivals, hayrides and dressing up as a pirate or a farmer to go trick-or-treating. And that’s also what it was like for my (now) very post-Halloween-age children. And while I still hold to the childlike fun the night can hold, I no longer view the day itself as innocent.

The Season of the Witch (2022)

“When did everybody become a witch?” As the New York Times notes, there is no perfect way of tracking witches in America, but we do know that Wicca “is more popular than ever.”
