I woke up the other day thinking I needed to look up the word "acumen". Not at all certain what it meant, but knowing the root was probably 'acute', I realized that today, like many other days, my (God)Daddy was playing a game of 'hide-and-go-seek' with me. You see, Hi...

There are few monarchies left on earth. There are only 28 monarchies left in the world and only seven endowed with absolute rule. The concept of kings and queens is irrelevant to those nations that do not have them. For most nations that still honor the tradition of th...

Whatever one’s faith background, I would venture to believe that most people have heard of this Biblical statement: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, and strength, and likewise, love your neighbor as yourself.”  (Mark 12:30-31)

"Always think of your audience not for your audience." -Mo Willems

We were going on day 19 of reading Anna Loves Elsa, a gripping tale about why Frozen’s Anna and Elsa characters aren't just sisters--they're best friends (can you sense my sarcasm). The board book comes...

“We need to step back and realize this is real grief speaking from real wounds.”

My wife and I were speaking with a friend about headlines consuming the East Coast, particularly where we lived only 50 miles from Baltimore. In spring 2015, a young black man, Freddie Gray...

The other day I observed my 3 year old son eating “non-conventional” food with his hands. I believe it was rice and beans to be exact. “Use your fork!” was at the tip of my tongue but then I refrained myself from speaking as I remembered a statement I had recently hear...
