• Your Pain IS Your Platform – A Single Mom’s Hope Out Of A Hopeless Situation

    You’ve heard me say this several times before, your pain is your platform. Who best is an expert to your own mess? Get to turning your mess in to a message. Your test in to a testimony. I wanted to share this beautiful story from  Kristina Kuzmic, a comedian, blogger, reality star, chef, a mom, and much much more. What I love about her is her wittiness, her humor, and she really does live up to the name given to her as the “Truth Bomb Mom.” Recently, Kristina shared a video opening up about the struggles she faced after a divorce left her raising her two children alone.

  • DISCIPLINE and LOVE –

    “For whom the LORD loves He reproves, even as a father corrects the son in whom he delights.” – Proverbs 3:12 Kids are just kids, right?

  • Single Dads’ Involuntary Silence – The Pitch For Your Voice

    Hey, I need to hear from you! You, single dad. You, father. You, who knows a father. I’ve personally met and worked with parents behind the scenes who face difficulty as a single parent and subsequently navigating the system as required of them in order to reunify with their children. Most often, it’s with mothers – but this is not to say that fathers are not involved. While I can certainly touch on this topic alone, my preference is to pitch on a subject that is widely recognized but has rarely been supported on the public platform. Single Dads – their lack of representation and support, and the need to…

  • TABLETS, TOYS and THINKING… Oh My! | Educational and Learning Toys Parents Love

    Part 2 from “The Modern Day Idiot Box” Back in February 2017, I wrote a blog about kids spending way too much screen-time. Just to give you a quick recap, I wanted to strike up a conversation as to the good and the bad of modern day technology.
