Matthew Matheny, A Compassionate Loan Consultant with a Big Heart for A Homeless Veteran

If you’ve ever tried to purchase your own home, you can understand the high emotional and financial cost the entire house hunting and purchasing process can have on a first-time buyer. Just the mountain of paperwork and demanding credit history checks, alone, are almost insurmountable obstacles for any anyone no matter where they live. Simply put – home ownership is seldom an easy process. But what if you had to add the fact that you are homeless? And you are a military veteran with post-service scars? AND you are short on the money needed to secure the loan or guarantee the contract? If this were you, I’d say there was a real good chance you weren’t going to get into…


For the Student with Social Anxiety

Many know the feeling all too well. It’s without logic, it’s without reason, but the dread is real, and it manifests itself.

Be Kind To Yourself – Take That Pause

One cold evening, as I sat relaxed sipping a warm cup of tea, I experienced a nice friendly feeling – a sense of pristine calmness and appreciation of a divine and beautiful moment. And so just this small incident, got me thinking about our present day lives, which has come to be so dominated by the machine centered demands of the day. We don’t run technology any more. In fact, it is technology that is running us. We are controlled by it 24/7.

Even if we do get some free time our thoughts keep us occupied, planning…
