If you are reading this, the Mayans were wrong. It’s become comical how frequently the doomsday prediction rumors arise. At least three times in the last year, the world was predicted to end after a certain date (and that doesn’t count this year’s election). There are TV shows premised solely on the lives of people that are prepping for “doomsday.” But then again when some of the most popular TV shows include Honey Boo Boo, Toddlers and Tiaras or anything with a Kardashian, maybe that mix of garbage crammed through cables should be a strong warning indicator that we are near the end.
On the flip side of this apocalyptic talk, there are people like our cover feature, Will and Lisa Hawkins, whose success in life is founded on faith, which directly counterbalances the endless stream of demagoguery force-fed to us. Their story is a great reminder the power of faith and determination – it’s carried them both to great places and I’m certain you’ll enjoy the read.
So, here’s a toast to optimism for an exceptional year in 2013 and also for the first ever welcome letter that included the Mayans, Honey Boo Boo and the Kardashians- and definitely the last.
Happy New Year,
