Good Enough

October 8th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow


The How To Matter team is back with another episode for you while Gary is still off to audio school. Ivy and Justin did such a good job with their first try at producing an episode of How To Matter that the team decided to give them another shot at producing an episode. They have worked with James and Tom to include a piece on writing and with Salli to include her piece on managing the important things in our lives while giving appropriate priority to those things that do not matter as much. At times, good enough is actually good enough. Listen and see what you think about her perspective. After you have had a chance to listen to the episode, we hope you will take a minute to share your thoughts about the episode by shooting an email to us at

Angels Disguised

September 18th, 2016 by Dr. Gary Crow


“If a man is not rising upwards to be an angel, depend upon it, he is sinking downwards to be a devil.” What do you think about this pronouncement from Samuel Taylor Coleridge?

If you are skeptical about this angel thing, consider what George Elliot said, “The golden moments in the stream of life rush past us and we see nothing but sand; the angels come to visit us, and we only know them when they are gone.”

OK, you may still see nothing but sand and are too busy to rise upwards to be an angel. Besides, you’ve never seen an angel and doubt if anyone else has either. Well, it’s just like James Russell Lowell said, “All God’s angels come to us disguised.”

Voltaire added, “It is not known precisely where angels dwell – whether in the air, the void, or the planets. It has not been God’s pleasure that we should be informed of their abode.”

Nonetheless, “Angels descending, bring from above, echoes of mercy, whispers of love.” (Fanny J. Crosby)

It’s like Jean Paul Richter told us, “The guardian angels of life fly so high as to be beyond our sight, but they are always looking down upon us.”

“O welcome, pure-eyed Faith, white-handed Hope, Thou hovering angel, girt with golden wings!” (John Milton, Comus)
