When my first child was born, I wanted to put him in a bubble. From soft spots to sleep positions, there were so many things I worried about. But do you know what made me the most nervous? Driving him around in the car.

Should I give him his blanket, or is that a safety hazard?… Read More How to Save Money and Keep Your Family Safe on the Road

“Adoption is amazing! It is a great opportunity to get a child and welcome them as part of your family. I don’t have any doubt that God chooses for me to be a part of the Henry family. Adoption is a great thing, so if you are thinking about adoption I would wildly encourage you to do it. I would never want to NOT be a part of my family. I don’t know much about my birth mother, but I do know she must have been a very kind and loving person to let somebody adopt me. I love being adopted!!”… Read More December of Kindness: Week 3

As a woman in automotive & a huge advocate for female leadership, I’m excited about the first woman I’m featuring, Mary Barra. Ms. Barra is not only an amazing female leader in a male-dominated industry; her leadership style is feminine and powerful. Mary Barra is the CEO of General Motors. General Motors was the first — and remains the only — automaker to be led by a female CEO. GM is one of only two Fortune 500 companies with women in CEO and CFO positions. Six of the 11 members of the board of directors are women. Ms. Barra is famous at GM for her inclusive leadership style & has been known to have “town hall” type meetings to seek input on projects. She has been praised for creating an inclusive environment where employees feel they can voice their opinions. She’s increased efficiency in some very creative ways. She cultivates a culture where departments work together when they had previously never done so. This style of leadership has produced highly effective teams. She is both a breath of fresh air & a force to be reckoned with. … Read More Women’s History Month: Mary Barra

Due to so many differences in fuel quality existing across North America and the fact that each vehicle’s exposure to cold weather will be different, there is no definitive temperature at which diesel begins to gel. However, most fuels reach their cloud point between 20 degrees F and -18 degrees F. … Read More BTWednesday: Diesel Gelling-A Cold Weather Issue Arkansans & Oklahomans Have Probably Never Had to Consider
