Another Father's Day is approaching, and families all over the country will honor and celebrate their fathers and father figures. Whether small or grand, dads on that day will be the center of attention. I want to thank my children Anetra, Tinesha, Nicole, and Tim Jr. for continued reverence of me as their father and mentor. God has blessed me with 35 years of fatherhood, and in honor of fathers everywhere, I would like to share what I call the "four pillars of fatherhood." I hope these pillars will create healthy dialogue within the family setting.

I recently heard a woman say that she is constantly reminded by people of the person she used to be.

This is common with a lot of people when they start to change for the better.

This article is about our health mentally, physically and spiritually. The Bible says it is in 1 Corinthians: "What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?" It's that time of the year again; my third radio show anniversary is in June. This year, my health fair will be held in Baltimore. Yep, and that was scheduled well before the big hoopla. It is the third anniversary of my radio show. I had the first one in D.C. and the second in Dallas, and now this year it will be in Baltimore.

What does it mean when people say, "Follow your dreams?" I think that means to never give up on what you really what to do or be. I believe it also means that your dreams are your true calling. "What is a true calling?" That is something that you were destined to do. That thing that you can't seem to stop thinking about and that you believe you will eventually find yourself doing.
