You can probably remember a time in the not-so-distance past when you felt like all that you had on your plate left you completely under water.

As I was mulling over what to write on this week, I remembered back to a list that my coach in college printed off for each guy on our Cross Country team. I remembered how much it impacted me, and how much it informed my path throughout my college experience. I’m not pretending like I […]

If I (over a scotch and a pipe) were to ask you to shortly and simply define fatherhood, how would you respond? In today’s society, fatherhood does not mean what it used to. The modern portrayal of fathers on TV, movies, commercials, etc. varies greatly. Some fathers are depicted as severe, sexist, and self-centered – […]
