There is something magical about our family prayer. I don’t know how far it goes back, but I know my Grandma and Grandpa said the same prayer raising my aunts, uncles, and my dad, but just with some different words because I’m guessing my dad just wanted to do something different.
Now I say it with my wife and kids,…Continue
My family and I like go to Lake Hartwell sometimes during the summer with some friends of ours who happen to have a lake house and a pontoon boat sitting on a dock. We always have a great time, swimming, boating, tubing, jumping off the docks, and just being crazy. I feel like a kid again, when I’m in these types of environments; especially where there is water!
So it was the summer of 2011,…Continue
This year has been quite a ride, as was for many of us. Most are worried about what the future holds and feel the need to keep chugging away at the tasks at hand and hold on to what sameness or reality we can. But there are some that recognize life events for what they are, and know that all they have is…Continue
Since my wife and I met, we have been through years on out of joy and growing as a beautiful family together, but there’s another side… We have also witnessed a deep struggle with trying to make our lives work, and like most people there are those trying questions that come up, “Is this struggle ever going to…Continue
We had a great time at Lake Hartwell earlier this week. Almost felt like a celebration for getting our A/C fixed on Sunday. Yes, the house feels nice and cool, and we’re loving it! So we had some friends over who have a lake house, and asked why don’t we come up to the lake with them. So we grabbed our stuff and took…Continue
I believe I’m the first entrepreneur in my family generation and of a lot of people I was used to knowing growing up, so you can imagine the dichotomy I had to deal with trying to build a business in the midst of raising a family. Of course, I love my family and close friends dearly, but for some people, what I was doing would naturally seem like an odd picture for them. It definitely didn’t cross the “normal spectrum” of how to earn money.
A brief acquaintance asked…Continue
I had an amazing weekend with the family. Watching the kids hunt for eggs brings back so many childhood memories. It’s amazing to watch children play and do make-believe things. There’s not a care in the world for a child, and in their world anything can happen; anything is possible, and every moment appears to be brand new for them. Nothing seems to get old for them – and I say that very loosely – as we’ve heard the cries of a kid not getting their way…Continue
What is your world to you? Does it consist of growing up in a family home, going to church every Sunday, going to school, getting good grades, listening to instructions and following rules, get to college, graduate, get married, get a job, get in debt, have children, teach those children to do the same things you did, retire at 65 (we hope) with tons of debt, and with children who have great…Continue
Our mothers; most of the time they seem to be an overlooked gift. There is a strength and sometimes not seen force behind every man, and behind every family. She is the foundation of the family, because her strength comes naturally from the heart. Without this foundation, the man is just a man, and the family blends into a dying world.…
What hurts you inside so deeply that you want to create change, and make a difference? What is it that makes your blood boil when you think about it, and if you could only do something to help or improve that something, your life would be complete?…
So what do you love to do? For me, I love to do a lot of things… But what do you have to do? For me, I don’t have to do “anything”…. So why would anybody do something because they believe they have to do it? It’s the same cog in a wheel analogy that Seth Godin talks about. We’re engrained (or should I say indoctrinated) to believe that…Continue
