Grant has been playing football since he was nine years old. He began playing in elementary school and then progressed to the high school level, where he played on the freshmen team, followed by junior varsity, and finally varsity in eleventh grade. Due to his skills and abilities, Grant was often brought up to the […]

Get in the Game

By |December 29th, 2014|

I was at a friend’s house recently and the scene inside his home reminded me of the days when I was parenting young children. There was stuff all over the floor. There were people pushing and pulling each other. There were children seemingly being pulled apart. There was debris flying through the air. A paper […]

Can’t Google This

By |November 6th, 2014|

Just about anything you want to know can be Googled these days. The fact that we tell someone to Google something is odd—at least for those of us who didn’t grow up with technology. The last time I clicked on the Google search engine, I was offered the opportunity to upgrade to Google Chrome. Wow! […]

The Dog Ate My Homework

By |November 6th, 2014|

It never ceases to amaze me the lengths people will go to in avoiding responsibility for their own actions.  There are times I’ve done this myself. I’ve made excuses for why I didn’t put away the milk I had poured on my cereal a few minutes before or why I left my shoes in the […]

We love movies because they often have happy endings whereas life does not. Some movies help us understand life. The theme of the movie Lion King not only brought awareness to meerkats and warthogs, but it helped us better comprehend the circle of life.  The main character, Simba, is shamed into leaving his family’s kingdom […]

For most students, school is out for the summer and enjoying their time away from the books. I was thinking about when my kids were in school, and I was reminded of a guest speaker in one of my children’s classes. He was invited in for the day to share his expertise in a particular […]

Do you remember the slogan, “If at first you don’t succeed…” Do you remember? Has the next phrase come to your mind, “try, try again”? That’s right, altogether, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.” Well, it seems like that phrase has been replaced with, “If at first you don’t succeed, borrow from […]

Beauty is a Beast

By |March 18th, 2014|

It’s no secret that young women often struggle with self-esteem.  It has almost become a natural part of growing up. A large part of the responsibility for building up self-confidence in adolescents is, in my opinion, up to parents. They typically have the most influence over their children. But it becomes a real battle for […]

Diffuse It

By |February 19th, 2014|

I remember one night years ago when my wife and I were driving home and she shared with me something that was going on with one of our then teenage daughters. I don’t even remember what it was, but I remember as I listened to the story, I could feel my blood pressure, which had […]

Because I Said So

By |January 6th, 2014|

The sun is setting. The work has all been done. Finally it’s time to relax. You plop yourself down in your beloved chair with a delicious snack and beverage at your side. You are ready to be entertained by your favorite weekly television show.

This was a familiar scenario in the house where many of us […]
