Are you one of the few considering a Short Sale in Gilbert?

While there are far fewer people these days considering a Short Sale of their home in Gilbert, there are still some who may have purchased just before the “bust” last decade who may owe significantly more on the home than the proceeds of the sale will bring. What to do? A Short Sale is one such solution. A Short Sale is a “regular resale” with one distinct and significant difference. The agreement of your lender(s) to accept less than the balance(s) owed on the loan(s). Whether or not a homeowner meets the other “requirements” of their lender(s) such as a “valid” hardship can only...

Why Baby Showers Are Important

Is having a baby shower imperative? Well, no not technically, but it is important. Having a baby shower signifies the beginning of a new life, for you and your baby. If you or someone you know is having a baby, you should make sure a baby shower is in plan for the future. Many expecting mothers don’t want to “burden” their friends with having to host a baby shower in their honor, but the reality is throwing a baby shower shouldn’t (and isn’t) a burden, it should be an honor to throw a pregnant woman a shower, whether it be a first child, or 5th, the party will always be something that should be cherished. The purpose of a baby shower is of course so the expecting mother can receive gifts (which is reason enough for the celebration) but also, having a shower hosted in your name is really something special that every pregnant woman needs. The depression that pregnancy can sometimes cause (because your body is changing, because you’re hormonal, whatever the reason) can be significantly reduced when there is one day that is specifically designated to the pregnant woman. As stated above, gifts are probably the main reason for hosting a “party” for the new mommy, and the reasons can differ slightly as to why this is important.

Christian Team Building Activities, Games, and Ideas for Fun

Christianity promotes unity and hence team building is an essential activity of the church. To foster unity and enhance the values taught by the religion in the congregation, some Christian team building activities for adults can be organized by the church. Such activities will also help develop leadership skills, reinforce social commitments and co-operation amongst the church goers. To develop the activities for building a team of church goers, the Bible is undoubtedly the best source. It contains numerous sermons on the importance unity and teamwork hold, in building a strong human race. So before embarking on devising activities for adult church goers, consult the Holy Scriptures thoroughly. 1. Hunt a Bible Verse: Based on the game of Treasure Hunt, this game is a great team builder that will renew interest in the Bible amongst your congregation. Get the people into groups of three to five members. Give a Bible and a list of clues for a verse in it, to each group. Some of the clues could be easy pointers to the verse. Each group should hand in their list of verses within the stipulated time. 2. Do as Jesus would do: Divide the people into groups as in the previous game. Here you will need a few facilitators. They will depict a scene or situation to each group separately. One member from the group will react to...
