Many of you that know me, know I was born legally blind.  But for those who don't, let me explain what that means a little better.

It means that my childhood was blanketed with trips to doctors who would poke, prod, and examine every inch of my eyeballs.  It meant dilat...

Every year as I'm writing out my long and short term goals I like to come up with a motto for the year as well.  This year its one word...


We've discussed how important setting goals is (find that convo here), but perhaps the biggest part of that process is followi...

I should preface this post by saying my wife was kind enough to approve me writing about this. I say that because it’s quite personal, for the both of us. But I think it’s important to share bc I know for certain we’re not the only ones who have experienced it. So my h...

It would be a lie if I told you I’m not worried about my son’s future in the darkened landscape we know as our world. But there’s more we can do than “hope and pray”.

As I’ve gotten older and grown into my own skin I’ve learned there’s a better way to operate. It starts...

So many toys I wished for often but was never satisfied with much

I wished that I could grow up fast so I could do things on my own
