All of our recent talk about bravery sparked my interest in habits. Is developing bravery really as simple as making it part of your daily routine? Could brave actions become as hardwired as brushing your teeth first thing in the morning, or looking both ways before you cross the street? I turned to The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg to help me learn why we do what we do.

There are two main lessons to understand about habits, which the book dubs the Habit...

A nagging voice in the back of my mind tells me I shouldn't be writing this blog post. As I type, in my kitchen there is a crock pot half full of leftover chicken dinner that needs packaged for lunch tomorrow and cleaned. And yet I'm choosing to let it sit on the counter. It's a perfect reminder of why this post is so important.

I recently read an article about how difficult it is to avoid burnout, especially for women. This may seem like the most obvious un...

I have a confession to make that may take you by surprise since I advocate for setting goals and constantly pursuing personal growth- I hate New Year’s Resolutions. I’ve never believed in them because I’ve rarely seen these efforts yield results other than leaving people feeling inadequate and further behind when they don’t achieve the outcomes they were hoping for.

"I did public accounting as an auditor and got to see how...

Over a year ago, I had someone I respected ask me why I chose to be so open about my hobbies and interests. At first this question caught me off guard. I'd never considered that I shouldn't be able to talk about my love of Star Wars or excitement about the next concert I was checking off my bucket list. After all, nobody bats an eye when men come into the office buzzing about the latest football news or plans to go hunting over the weekend. Why must I risk...

Becky is the Executive Vice President of Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, but the road to this position was one filled with challenges and hard work. While as a child she considered becoming a hairdresser and dreamed of going to go college, she knew she had to find her own way to make her educational aspirations come true.

“The job that I started in as a co-op student was in retail at a boutique in Radcliff. I finally ended up getting a job with a bank in the...

Warning: the following post reflects my personal religious views. While I pride myself in being of service to people of all backgrounds and beliefs, my faith is intertwined with who I am. If that’s a problem, feel free to keep browsing the interwebs. Might I suggest visiting this list of the 20 cutest kittens ever? Surely we can all agree that is time well spent!

For Patrick’s First Communion we bought him a copy of the Adventure Bible, which he has been f...
