Time Margins End the Marginalisation of Men From Families

Margin is a term entrenched in the financial world. Margin trading. Stock margin. Profit margin -- the examples are vast. In situ, it means the sum total between a ‘product or service's selling price and the cost of production’. In practice, margin is a buffer. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onxDxK_N6K8   In other words, margin is whatever fills the gap between success and ruin. Margin is what’s left over after both variable and invariable costs have ...

Through My Child’s Eyes

Listen to author Annette Spurr’s interview with Focus on the Family Australia here. ‘While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.’ ~ Angela Schwindt Nothing can truly prepare you for parenthood. The tears and tantrums, toilet training, sleepless nights, the worry that you’re not doing it right, or the indescribable love that changes everything. As soon as I found out ...

Life is About Choices

Tony Robbins said, “It is in your moments of decision that your destiny is shaped.” We all make a life by the decisions we make. A great man I once knew said to me, “Life is a decision.” So how do you make the right decisions in life, both for yourself and for your family?

The all-star TV dads who slam the sloppy stereotypes

Not all TV dads are the same. Take examples like Tim Allen’s sharp-witted Mike Baxter, and contrast him with Matt Groening’s, feckless Homer Simpson. Forget for a moment that we’re talking about cartoon vs. human. In any greatest-dad-of-all-time celebrity boxing match, we know Baxter would win. The outdoor man vs. the “Duff” guzzling, obese, inattentive, drooling, lounge lizard. A father with strength, humility, and a no-nonsense embrace of free speech, up ...

I have experienced this mysterious force in men’s gatherings at so many different levels and in so many different ways, for the last 40 years. I just love it when men ...

Dad-life is a Verb

Dad-life involves both being and doing. In a word, fatherhood is a vocation. The Latin equivalent is vocare -- “to call.” Dad-life is therefore a “calling.” It’s much more than just another job. https://youtu.be/Eor3779ECFI For sure, fatherhood is full-time work. We’re required to be on the scene until the good Lord retires us. This will mean being waste-deep in the complexity of relationships. Wading through life’s trenches carrying responsibility and ...
