Family Funerals

Funerals, everybody loves attending them, right?  If you are like me, you don’t look forward to attending a funeral.  Depending on who died, it may be a very somber event.  In my forty five years on this earth I have attended funerals for the young, old cemetary

Being Under Satan’s Yoke (BUSY)

Posted by:

Do you always feel like you are running late, falling behind, or rushing around like a chicken with your head cut off?  If so you are not alone.  My wife and I feel like this on a regular basis, especially around the end of the year.  A popular Catholic speaker, Jesse Romero, likes to remind people that being busy is not necessarily a good thing.  He points out that the letters which make up the word are a great way ...

Practical Discipline

Posted by:

We live in a society where discipline is not viewed in a positive light.  Many parents think that it is better to be their child’s best friend instead.  The results have been a society of immature adults.  If you are interested in my thoughts on why discipline is so important for our children, our society and the future of our world, please check my article entitled “Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child”.

Spare the Rod, Spoil the Child

Posted by:

Our society has become a society of children, there is ample evidence to back up my claim.  Think about how a child acts, they have a short attention span, they easily change their mind, they see something in the checkout line at the grocery store and  they want to buy it.  If a child doesn’t get their way, they might ...

What is the Goal of Dating?

After Action Report: Prom

Posted by:

Two weeks after my daughter attended the High School Prom, we wrote up our collective thoughts on her attendance.  We wanted to take some time to sort through our emotions, analyze the decision and then write the comments down (and still be a good husband and Father to our nine children).

Educating the Next Generation

Posted by:

A number of years ago on a Saturday evening, I volunteered to be a chaperone at the local High School Prom.  As I mentioned in my previous post about this particular Prom, I was not going to chaperone my daughter and her friend, I was there to observe the prom and ensure that my daughter was in a safe place.  My participation in this event had an additional effect on me in that it confirmed my wife and I in ...
