Grace Filled Marriage, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Grace Based Parenting, Loves Secret Sauce, Wedding, marriage

  As far as weddings go, it’s the best seat in the house. If there wasn’t so much responsibility that goes with occupying it, I’d be inclined to grab it more often. I’ve watched couples tie the knot from just about every angle, but for me, the best view of the action is the one […]

{originally published in 2012} It’s not the smartest thing in the world to question a growing tide within conventional wisdom. Yet sometimes, it’s just too hard to resist. And it’s especially dangerous to a writer’s health to poke a stick in the eye of the hopeless romantics of the world. All this said; excuse me […]

New Years Resolutions, Love God Love Others, Joey Espinosa

Earlier this week I posted my two goals for the year; today is how I will reach my goals.   Pursue.  I’ve already written how Men Must Pursue, as we reject passivity. More than anything else, pursuing my family involves how I use my time. After a long day (or any day), my tendency is […]

I'm With Stupid, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Grace Filled Marriage

If you’re gauging me from the typical measuring standards of human decency and […]

  When I got married ten years ago, I really thought I was taking my vows seriously.   My (then) new husband and I thought we had all the ingredients for a strong marriage, like you’d find them on a checklist or something. A budding romance. Check. Common goals. Check. Shared interests. Check. A (sort […]
