Ask anyone who knows me and they'll probably tell you, growing up I was typically not the risk-taker in the group. Sure, I'll cheer on those brave enough to go skydiving, cliff-jumping, or waterskiing, and there's a slim chance I could be coaxed into trying one of those daring activities with the right amount of peer pressure and caffeine intake. But if I had the choice, I'd rather be kayaking on a peaceful river or flying in a commercial airline (I do love to fly!) as my "safe" level of risk.
We are always managing some level of risk in life. Whether it's the "tiny" risk of whether or not to say hello or the bigger decisions like when to buy a house, quit a job, or start a business. I guess that's why Ben Carson's book titled Take the Risk jumped out at me while browsing the thrift store bookshelves.
Side note: You should see my book problem. Stacks. And stacks. But that will soon be solved by living room built-ins, drawn on paper by yours truly and currently under construction by Papa! We'll be sure to show you soon!
When we heard that the Devine Food Pantry helped feed over 15,000 hungry people last year, our minds were blown away. Our small town does have a big heart! That's why we're so excited about the first video in "The Sign Says Devine" video series.
