I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.

Maintaining Gratitute During Hard Times

Let us rise up and be thankful, for if we didn't learn a lot today, at least we learned a little, and if we didn't learn a little, at least we didn't get sick, and if we got sick, at least we didn't die; so, let us all be thankful.

The decision to practice gratitude is one of the simplest and most significant decisions we can make in improving our personal joy, health, peace, contentment and level of inspiration. Gratitude changes our perspective in life, which in turn, changes our lives. However, it is important to understand that the practice of gratitude does not require …

Sustained Inspiration

Discipline is remembering what you want.

The vision keeps us motivated, sometimes for quite …

Why Practice Faith?

Faith is to believe what you do not see; the reward of this faith is to see what you believe.
