  • What role does Dad play?

    I know this topic is late. However, the relevance of this topic is just as timely for this week as it would have been for last week. I would like starting with a little story. A little girl came to her mommy and asked, “Mommy, if Santa Claus brings us our presents and God gives us our daily bread and Uncle Sam gives us social security, why do we keep Daddy around?” That little girl’s question could seem precocious or realistically thoughtful.

  • As the world struggles with parenting, we can succeed through the Father

    “Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew Him not” (1 John 3:1).

    This past Sunday we celebrated Father’s Day. I hope you had a wonderful day and that it was indeed, a special day. With this in mind I want to write to you about the subject of Fatherhood.

  • The trouble with cookies and other losses of self-control

    When I was a kid, my father’s mother owned a bakery.

    Whenever we’d visit her, we would come home with huge pink bakery boxes filled with assorted butter cookies, plus bags of bagels and loaves of bread and the best cinnamon rolls and bear claws you could ever eat.

    Fun fact: My dad used to say when Uncle Benny swept the floor at night, whatever he swept up was what he put on the bear claws as toppings.

    I’m pretty sure he was joking, or else he wanted to gross us out so he could eat all the bear claws.
