*  Ecology and globalism
*  The importance of women
*  Spirituality, self-actualization

In Honor of Stephen R. Covey, 10/24/1932 - 7/16/2012

In his book The 8th Habit, Mr. Covey eloquently and lovingly speaks about the family:

"Perhaps the highest way to bring balance to life is the family.  The first and most demanding form of personal growth also takes place in the family and provides the greatest contribution to society...The most important work you do in your life will be within the walls of your own home.  David O. McKay taught, 'No other success can compensate for failure in the home'...Parenthood is the most important leadership responsibility in life..."

Mr. Covey also asserts the importance of having a clear vision leading to a positive 'family culture' that in turn is transmitted from generation to generation.  Words of wisdom, to be sure.
