With the help of his teenage daughters Malia, 16, and Sasha, 13, President Barack Obama undertook a White House’s tradition of pardoning a turkey on Wednesday. Obama first introduced the two birds amusingly named Mac and Cheese then went on to give a short speech.

“I am here to announce what I’m sure will be the most talked about executive action this month. Today I'm taking an action fully within my legal authority, the same kind of action taken by Democrats and Republican presidents before me to spare the lives of two turkeys, Mac and Cheese, from a terrible and delicious fate."

Career: 5 Insights I Have Learned About Failure

I deal with people who feel like failures. Everyday.

It could be because of relationships gone bad.
Business setbacks.
A personal life — that was private — but is not anymore.
Bad decisions intentionally done or bad circumstances — out of their control.

All of that and more — failure.

One reason people seem to identify with my teaching is that I’m not perfect. I’ve made lots of mistakes. I didn’t enter the ministry until I was 38 years old and that was plenty of time to learn valuable life experiences by failure. (And, I haven’t quit making mistakes in ministry.)

Here’s what you need to understand though.

I’ve had failures — but I’m not a failure.

Because I got back up every time I failed.

Along the way — through failure — I’ve gained some insight into failure.

There are some misunderstandings about failing that you don’t necessarily knowing during the failing process.

Here are 5 things I’ve learned about failing:

Not everyone is talking about you. This is a critical understanding, because it sometimes feels that way. As a result, sometimes you avoid people — even though you may need people in your life now more than ever.

Happy Thanksgivings!

Relationships: God Please Make Me A Wife

Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture. Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. – Psalm 37:3-4
I found myself asking God for so many things. God make me a writer. God prepare me to be a wife. God just do something.

Here I was constantly asking God to do things, but what was I doing?
God keeps His word. His promises do not manifest in our time, but they manifest in a moment that couldn’t be better crafted by anyone but the creator himself.
So, if I know God is going to do His part, then why am I not doing my part?
This question really hit me, when I asked God to prepare me to be a wife, and when things didn’t seem to be working out the way I wanted, God showed me that I was not doing my part.
Instead of being completely confident in the promise, I was doing the total opposite of what I asked God for.

Relationships: Types Of Husbands

Will you be able to relate to some of these points? I'm hoping that everyone's husband is a number 10.

1. BACHELOR HUSBAND: He does things on his own without consulting

2. ACIDIC HUSBAND: He is always boiling like acid and always angry, violent, moody, dominating and very dangerous.
