Money Does Not Buy Happiness; Money Buys Freedom

                            By Bo Sanchez   ONCE upon a time, I was poor. And proud of it. I was a happy single missionary who didn’t think about money, didn’t touch money, didn’t save money, and didn’t want to have anything to do with money.

How Do You Want to Die?

SpBy Bo Sanchez In the morning of November 11, 2008, Tita Neneng Mangahas died. My dearest friend was 83 years old. Who was she? She was God’s love to me. Really. Let me tell you her incredible story. She was a short, plumpish, silver-haired, never-been-married woman with a contagious laugh and a heart as big as a boat. For years, she was a very successful businesswoman who owned a gigantic canteen in a hospital. All her life, she...
