Taking my boy on the STUMP in NH #FITN

February 9, 2016
Yesterday I decided to declare my own "Take Your Child to Work" Day! It was the last day before the New Hampshire primary and nearly every candidate was within a 30 mile radius of our house, so we decided to take in the election up close and personal. While NH gets a lot of attention every four...

5 more days - #NH posting from #FITN central

February 4, 2016
Only 5 more days! New Hampshire is crazier than ever. I thought that we would get some clarity after the Iowa Caucuses, but if anything the path ahead is only murkier. With so few days and remaining I wish I could offer a great nugget of wisdom or some sharp insight into what Granite Staters will...

November 9, 2015
Because it’s 2015, I can’t see these pictures and not act. Because it’s 2015, you can’t sit by anymore either. Because it’s 2015, we can’t let ourselves say “but I like being the #2.” The powerful images put out by Elle UK were all too familiar. They featured some of the most recognizable global...

What scares me more than Halloween night...

October 30, 2015
Halloween is a big deal in our house. We hang ghosts in our trees, tell spooky stories, and have fun making scary costumes. Know what scares me even more than Halloween? Letting other people make big decisions with long-term impacts that affect my family. That's no treat. Next Tuesday is election...

Are you at a threshold, too?

August 25, 2015
Yesterday we attended a moving "Ceremony of 13" at our church for my teenage son. Cultures around the world share a tradition of marking the transition from childhood to adulthood beginning at age 13 (in the Jewish tradition this is called a Bar or Bat Mitzvah). Our ministers shared why it's key to...
