Learning to Father

Yes, you can learn to father. Hear from 86-year-old Clive on how he went from having no relatable dad in his life to becoming the pivot around which many from inside and outside of his bloodline proudly call him ‘dad’. How do you learn to be a father when you have not had a good example from your father? Can you just trust instinct? Is that enough? And when you decide ...

Valentine’s Day

A man once said to me, "I told my wife I loved her once, why do I have to tell her again?" Maybe that foolhardy statement is one of the reasons many men get irked by Valentine's Day. I was one of them. Men are headliners, while women are fine print people.  Men say, "Just give me the facts." Once we have those facts, we don't like going over old ground. ...

The week after the story went out to 5,000 fathers, I spoke to my wife about the newsletter.

Valentines Day and the Key to a Woman’s Heart

I have heard so many men complain to me, “My wife is very high maintenance”. In most cases this statement shows a distinct lack of understanding of the fairer sex. The truth of the matter, from a man’s point of view, is all women are high maintenance. A man’s needs are very simple: food, s*x, sleep. OK, that’s a huge over-simplification, but there’s more truth in it than we care to ...

Divorce – Find Solace in God

It is not the actual divorce that hurts families. It is the pain of finding guilt in one another as divorcing couples. The fighting, the yelling, the attacking of one another's character is what causes trauma in children and friends. Some people’s mistake is to either marry the wrong person or think they have married the wrong person. The problem then so often lies in couples trying to blame the other ...
