If there’s one secret I’m taking with me to my grave, it’s the fact that I took my 10-year-old sister (her idol) with me to Walt Disney World. I mean I can tell you. That’s fine. But I can never tell my daughter. I’m not sure she’d forgive me. Lil’ J knew…

The Main Reason I'm Focusing on Me This Summer Instead of My Kids

As I got ready to take off on yet another trip, I watched a flight attendant demonstrate flight safety procedures for the hundredth time. “Put on your own oxygen mask before assisting those around you.” It’s hard to imagine attempting to saving myself…

Choosing to Serve Together as a Family. #ollykids @OllyNutrition

“Can I have one of my super vitamins?” My daughter asked me before we left to start our busy morning. “Sure baby,” I held them out, urging her to choose quickly. We had an important task ahead of us. MIGHTY Immunity, HAPPY Tummy, SUPER Brainy, GROWING…
