Just turn the TV on and you can hear issues of destruction, brutality and adversity. Which my brothers and sister is a constant reminder that we better continue to prepare ourselves for the inevitable demise and destruction of the world as we know it, because that is the only way the Kingdom can come unto earth (Matthew 6:10) in the way that it is currently in Heaven.
Have we forgotten the past of our biblical heritage in that the moral turpitude of the Roman Empire was just as brutal and conniving as our system of government is today. Genocide in Africa, unable to determine some men from women and women from men. And in our current times chaos is our constant companion on the New and in extreme TV.
We are in and instant gratification stage, no one researches anything why should when you have goggle, echo and even cars that drive themselves. We have replaced common logic and patience with impatience, misinformation and undocumented sources on wikipedia.
In the times of Paul sickness was everywhere; many things were incurable. But yet, Paul looks through all the government corruption, sickness and confusion and he sees a hope for a future. Paul believes something is pregnant.
When times are tough do you look for the blessing in the midst of the trouble? Do you say to yourself; tragedy means there is triumph somewhere in the equation?
Paul pens this letter in Romans this is a time not to rebel but a time to wait. Either way we have to wait during…
There has been an experiment started by Walter Mischel in the 1960s. The experiment was called the marshmallow test. He used this test to try to teach the child self discipline (willpower).
The researcher, parent, or someone else would tell the child “ you have to wait in the room for 20-50 minutes.” If the marshmallow or a different treat is eaten you will not get to eat the other treat. If the treat is not eaten the child will get the other treat.
The same experiment that Walter…

Researcher John Eastwood (York University, Ontario) and colleagues define boredom as "an aversive state of wanting, but being unable, to engage in satisfying activity" (Rader 1). There is good and bad in everything and boredom is no exception. Boredom has become pervasive in response to technology, this technology induced boredom has played a huge role in today’s culture.

Many risk factors influence children’s behavior that can lead to some children being more challenging than others. As a teacher, one must be able to determine which behaviors are normal and acceptable for their student’s particular age group and which behaviors are inappropriate and disruptive. Furthermore, a teacher must implement different strategies to support challenging behaviors and help to change or replace those behaviors.

We have all been there, doing homework, with your phone next to you. It begins to continuously vibrate, it makes you tempted to pick it up and answer.

ten points than those who were unable to wait (Source 1). This study showed that children were able to use their skill in delaying their gratification to resist the urge of temptation.

The Marshmallow Challenge and the PDCA cycle
The Marshmallow Challenge is an interesting team building game. Not only does this silly game teach how to collaborate as a team, but, more importantly, teams that perform well, use an iterative method. In lean, small kaizens can lead the way to big changes. PDCA is an iterative process. In software development, releasing successive iterations of products are now the norm.
Materials: one marshmallow, spaghetti, tape and rope.…
