3 Teaching Tips

Dear Eleanor and Wesley, I’m a professional teacher. I believe that, given a few parameters, I can teach just about anyone to do just about anything within my scope. I’ve believed that to be true for quite some time. I think it started around 7th grade when I decided to teach every kid who would […]

My Giggly, Frilly, Spiritual Wrecking Ball

Adeline, I thought I would develop a clearer understanding of God as a father after I became a dad. That’s partially true. In reality, I am often more confused about God since I became your father. Here are some things I thought I had figured out before you crashed into my life like a giggly, […]

The Desperate Search

*A “binky” is a pacifier, if you don’t know* Braxton- Where in the name of all that is good are your binkies? I swear there are gremlins or something that are constantly hiding these things. All I can think of right now is Madeline Kahn in Clue saying “flames…flames, on the side of my face…” […]

I Just Wanted to Let You Know That I Saw a Toad

Upon Further Reflection

Dear Malin Reese, You know from a previous letter that I received my degree in Creative Writing, which is really the best explanation as to why I work in Sales/Marketing.

When I make an attempt, it means about 20 minutes of crafting on a clever 140 character quip, followed by immediate deletion due to excruciatingly dull content and bland delivery.

There She Blows

Adeline, Relentless. Such is life. And dissatisfaction of the soul is often the collateral damage of this relentless life. My dear, I fear that you have been lied to. You’ve been led to believe the myth of the arrival. You believe that there is some thing, some person or some achievement that will usher in […]
