“The man who kills a man kills a man The man who kills himself kills all men. As far as he is concerned, he wipes out the world.” – G. K. Chesterton I am not Catholic, but I formed a very firm belief growing up: If a Christian (or anyone else, for that matter) commits suicide,… Read More


We all want so badly to be right. We just know that what we’re thinking must be superior to the opposing point of view, and we believe if we just yell loud enough that we can convince them of the error of the their ways. It is just so obvious that our answer is the correct one.… Read More


Oh, America, America. What has happened to you? I guess I shouldn’t really be surprised. I mean, it’s been this way for years and years now. The ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, even during this young century: Everyone is looking for love. Everyone wants to be loved. Everyone wants to give love to someone else. Everyone… Read More


It seems as if a large majority of my life these days is revolving around basketball. My two oldest daughters are playing for a local private Christian school and practicing three nights a week (unless one of those nights is a game night, in which case they are, obviously, playing a game), and my oldest… Read More


I have a difficult time letting my children watch Peanuts cartoons. “What?” you might be asking. “What kind of problem could you possible have Snoopy and the gang?” Well, it’s quite simple, really: The other kids treat Charlie Brown like crap most of the time, and I don’t really want my kids thinking it’s okay… Read More

I had this brilliant idea last week that I would send the word out to some friends I knew had battled with depression in their own lives and invite them to be guest bloggers this week. I think I did this on a Wednesday or Thursday because, in my scatterbrained mind, I figured this was… Read More


You know it’s coming. Your daughters have forced you to watch Disney’s Frozen for the 735th time. Despite the familiarity, you find you’re actually not minding having to watch it again. You may even finding yourself singing the words “Do you want to build a snowman?” or “For the first time in forever…” slightly under your breath. You almost forget about… Read More


I’ve mentioned here on the blog before that I don’t particularly care for roller coasters. I just don’t get the thrill of trying to scare the crap out of yourself. “Here, I’m going to push you down this hill at a speed fast enough to make you think you might die.” Why, yes, that sounds… Read More


To quote the great Samwise Gamgee, “Well, I’m back.” The week-long Disney vacation is now over, and I am faced with the difficult task of re-assimilating back into reality.
