I didn’t think it was possible. At least not for a really long time. Maybe when our Littles are in Jr High. Maybe even further down the timeline than that. High School?? Certainly not now. Certainly not this week. It was a pipe dream. Impossible. Pie-in-the-sky type thing. We could never pull it off. No […]
Lead, Dad. Lead.
Hi all, Welcome to the new website!!!
Well, it isn’t really new. Just updated the look and brand because of the new direction I am heading with writing.
Dads are leaders. (so are Moms, but that is for another site)
We lead. At our places of business. In our churches. In our Community.
But before we can effectively lead any where, we have to start at home. Let’s learn how to lead together. Right here.
The new heart of the blog is simple:
Lead, Dad. Lead.
It is kinda funny. Most people wouldn’t think so. But I do. When you have a lot of kids in a relatively small living space, things don’t tend to last very long. I have a little phrase that I like to tell people when talking about my super sized family: “I have two types of […]
That’s it. I am throwing in the towel y’all. I am tired. I am drained. I am through. I am spent. No more. The…horizontally challenged female is singing her tune and I am drinking it in like Anne Shirley in a pasture of fresh spring blossoms. Calling it a day. Done and done. You have […]
Hey all. So I feel the need to explain this post a bit. It is a little out of the norm here. Below is a short story I cooked up a few weeks ago. For a myriad of reasons, we are needing to move to a new home. So I thought I would write a […]
She sat slightly slumped in the dining room chair. Her head hung a little too low, chin pointing to the floor. I knew what the problem was. Vikki had already brought me up to speed by text earlier that day. “What’s up, Jess?” I asked anyway, wanting to hear it directly from her. She spoke […]
My family eats a lot of bread. No surprise, right? If everyone eats a slice of toast (or two) and a cup of hot cocoa for breakfast we pretty much destroy an entire loaf, or at least close to it. Making everyone a sandwich? You don’t even want to know. Good thing bread is still […]
Sometimes it is easier to ask, “Why?” It is less confusing to ponder the unknown. There seems to be less pain in wondering what could have been. It’s much easier to sift through hypotheticals than to face the gritty, soul-shattering truth of reality. Don’t be ashamed. It’s our natural response when we are faced with […]
I said I would never forget. You did too, BTW. We all did. We will never forget what happened today, we promised. We will never forget the hollow empty pit gnawing at our insides. We will never forget the hopeless and helpless feeling of waiting for the next shoe to drop. We were all sure […]
Philippians 1:6 (NKJV) “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” Failure is big business these days. Been on YouTube lately? #fail #instantkarma #failvid How many hours have you burned watching fail videos on YouTube? Go ahead and […]
