The Best Way to Deal with Passive-aggressive People

When I was in college, I was extremely insecure.  And because I was so afraid people didn’t like me, I demanded a high level of loyalty from anyone who claimed to be my friend. Read more

To All the Parents Who Feel Like They’re Doing a Sorry Job

A couple of Saturdays ago, my wife had some errands to run, so I ended up spending most of the day with my daughters, who are three and four.  One thing that surprised me was how much I enjoyed myself, which may sound strange to those who know how much I love my kids. Read more

Single Men, Life Could Be a Whole Lot Better

Hey, single men out there, I want to tell you a story.

A couple of Saturdays ago, I was doing Daddy Daycare at the house with my two daughters when I asked my 3 year old a question. Read more

Jesus Loves the Kung Fu Fighters of the World

The other day, I came home from work at dinnertime, and as I walked up the steps of my house, I noticed there were four guys and one female sitting on the front porch of the house next door.  I was familiar with the group – not to mention a little uneasy with them – because I had seen them carrying skateboards and kung fu swords, and I had reflexively made a negative assessment of them (go figure).

I Don’t Normally Get Emails From Movie Producers

Last week, I posted a fairly negative review of the latest faith-based film, The Song, and I expected there to be a low to moderate degree of interest in what I wrote.  Boy, was I wrong. Read more

“The Song” Struggles to Stay on Pitch

The Song is the latest in a number of faith-based films that are not only trying to reach Christian audiences but also trying to appeal to those who never darken the doors of church buildings.  The film uses the story of a successful country music star as a rough analogy to the life of King Solomon and aims to teach lessons on faith, fidelity, and fame – I think.

What to Do When Your Kids are Making You Psycho

This past weekend, my wife had to be away for two days, which meant I was in charge of managing Daddy Daycare for a three and four-year-old.  I figured that two days might be a challenge, but I was up for it.  I was not. Read more

The Reason It’s So Easy to Stay In Love with My Wife

When I met my wife, I was a serial dater; and by that I mean that I made it my business to go out on dates with a wide range of eligible bachelorettes in hopes that one day I would strike gold and find a wife.  One assumption people made about me during that time was that I was some kind of super confident bachelor when it came to dating and women – it couldn’t have been further from the truth.  Read more

The Reason We Scroll Through Facebook Likes

A few years ago when I got on Facebook, there was no such thing as a “like” button (can you imagine it?).  You just posted status updates, photos, or links to articles, and the only way you knew whether people approved was if they commented on it.  Then the like button came along at some point and changed everything.  Now there was an instant measure of success for every insecure human being on Facebook.  Read more

When it Comes to Race, I Just Don’t Get It

When I was 14 years old, I got into a spat with my dear friend Erin Myers, thus beginning a one-month standoff between us in which we both refused to call or otherwise speak to one another.  That standoff was interrupted the day after school on May 26, 1994, when she pulled out in front of an 18-wheeler and died on impact.
