The only way to grow and learn is to try to take on more than you can handle.
Like the baby bear in The Story of the Three Bears, most are looking for just right. Not too hot. Not too cold. Not too hard. Not too soft. You want to find a place in life in which everything is c...

Imagine what the world would be like if we talked less and hugged more.
The weekend before last, I hugged a complete stranger. The weird part was that it wasn’t weird at all. Perhaps hugging someone you don't know isn't that unusual for you, but I’m not much of a hugge...

An example of how embracing what seems ordinary can turn it into something glorious.
Not all occupations are created equal. Just ask any mom. They wipe snotty noses. They make lunches, spreading peanut butter and jelly before anybody else is even out of bed. They scrub jeans covere...

I’ve driven by the building countless times. I hardly notice the size anymore. But to Sean, it was overwhelming. We parked and stepped out of the car. He was a step behind as Noah and I walked to t...

The goal of today is to make the kinds of decisions you will not regret tomorrow.
There are a few guarantees in life. The typical examples are death and taxes. I have one more for you. The next 10 years will pass quickly. Ten years seems like a really long time. It is hard to ev...

This story is harder. All of my fears were warranted. But this hardness is okay. And this story is better.

It is one thing to make good choices for yourself, it is another to help others with their bad ones.
Children are experts in destruction. Whatever the liquid is, they will spill it. No matter how child-proof the container is, they will get it open. No matter where you try to hide the toy,  they wi...
