Are Dads Really Connecting Online?

I saw a great infographic on AdWeek the other day with some really interesting analytics on how dads use social media and how brands interact with them. Personally. I really don't care for brands to reach out when I present a question to the internet, I assume they will always present their brand in the best possible light even if it isn't the best fit for me. That said, I have had some EXCELLENT customer service over Twitter and Facebook. Dell handled a repair and replacement claim almost 100% through Twitter DM and I've never been...

There May Be More To Being A Picky Eater

I've always been told I was a "picky eater". Ever since I was a little boy I identified certain types of foods that I could not stand but felt like I could never really explain why I didn't like them.

It was a wake up call for me that things needed to change. I immediately start to research fitness routines that would give me the greatest results with the least amount of effort...

She's been getting up in the middle of the night wanting to cuddle and play so I pick her up, cuddle with her in the chair for a bit then put her back to bed. This morning when I did that she had a really hard time with me leaving the room so I...

Obedience Starts With Me

I struggle with doing what I'm told. All I wanted this morning was to make a delicious breakfast sandwich to go so I could eat it in my office in peace without having to share it with the kids. I packed it in my lunch box and headed out the door for the office but as I got closer to my exit I felt God say, "There's a man at your exit who's hungry". He didn't say, "HEY SEAN! GIVE HIM YOUR SANDWICH!", He didn't change a road sign to signal my attention he just gave...
