In the United States, one person commits suicide every 17 minutes. It's estimated that over 4.5 million people in the United States have been directly affected by a suicide.

Phobias are a fairly common type of anxiety disorder. These types of anxiety disorders take on many forms. Some people are terrified of dogs, even small, friendly dogs. Some can’t fly. Some get physically sick at the thought of speaking in front of a group, even if the group is comprised of their church members. Some become so overcome with fear at the thought of being in public places that they never leave their home.

Many of us find ourselves caught between drive to provide the type of life that we want for our families and the desire to spend time enjoying that life with our families. As many of us find ourselves spending more time focused on work and the business of providing for our families, we realize that there is less time to spend with our families. This predicament is probably what gave birth to the expression “quality time.”
