How To Create Leaders within Your Family

Validation, the Future and Spies

Spies

Tweet “I want to be a spy!” My son Noah responded with so much enthusiasm when we were talking about what he wanted to be when he grows up. I could see his excitement and also his eyes waiting for his dad to say something in response.

Don’t Ever Leave Things Unsaid…

Don't Ever Leave Things Unsaid...

Most of Us Have No Idea What We’re Doing

Most of us have no idea what we're doing

Tweet When it comes to being a dad, most fathers will admit we have no idea what we are doing. Many times, if not most, we are flying by the seat of our pants and rolling with the punches. I’m reminded of a time when my 5 and 6 year old kids were asking my wife about the origin of dinosaurs or something like that and my wife looks at me and says, what do [...]
