Lately, I have been thinking about God as a Father. This is likely because all of my children will be legal adults this coming year and while I am still their father, my role is less of that as their parent. Our relationship is evolving.

What went wrong? How can a party of life do so little for the health and well being of its citizenry? How can a party of liberty so openly oppose gay marriage? How can a party that believes God gave all humans the right to pursue their happiness do so little to help immigrants doing just that?
Apparently, Matt Lauer, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, David Weiner and Bill Clinton did not get the message. Honestly, I thought most of what I am about to write would go without saying but the actions of these men (and many others) have pushed me to make it explicit for the sake of my sons and my daughter, and sons and daughters everywhere.Read More

You are going to want your 9 month old to walk, your 4 year old to read, your ten year old to fill out his planner just so you feel validated that you are meeting your high expectations of being a parent.

If you leave it up to your child to 'play' games out there instead of working on mastering his craft, you are failing to meet your responsibilities as a parent. Worse yet, if you leave it up to a stranger - that flamed out during D3 college ball and that has his own kid on the team - to spot and properly develop the genetically gifted - despite parentage - ball playing freak of a child you created, well then you have failed as a parent.Read More
