My wife, Thilini, started her own blog called “Through Dust” to serve as an outlet and medium for her inspirations and heart yearnings. Myself, I’m currently in the process of launching a new blog from the perspective of a Christian insurance agent/broker/consultant/adviser–whatever term works best for you (agent for a brokerage firm). That should help me get back into writing, and hopefully also serve to provide some perspective from a different angle on all that’s happening in American health care.
I’m not happy with how I’ve finalized it, and I want something simpler and more sleek. I would like some help, somehow. I just want to finish it and be done with it, so I can use it with everything I do–not just on this blog. Here has been my progress…
