    Singing Dad's Song

    5 weeks ago

    When a musician friend's dad passed away, he asked if I could try to write lyrics to a song for him. It ended up more like a poem, but I still like how it came out.

    I wrote this on Father’s Day around 2010. They are actually song lyrics that I would like to have put to music. I decided to upload it to Hub Pages after my son penned an amazing tribute to me on my Birthday. The whole time I read what he wrote, I though of this.

    As a triplet parent and step dad to three adult kids who have given us 6 grandkids with #7 on the way, I thought I could handle anything. Then my son went to Navy Boot Camp.

    Gay and Christian: Can you be both?

    A few years ago, there was much buzz at my church about an upcoming proposal in our state. The push among our congregation was less about promoting a stance as it was about making sure people got out and voted for this very important issue. We...

    May the Best Car WIn

    12 years ago

      On the way to Milford Proving Grounds for the "May the Best Car Win Challenge", I wondered how worthy this event would be for an amateur guy like me. As a busy father of three young children, just having the chance to drive alone in my new G8...

    The transition from elementary school to Jr. High was not something I feared. I had plenty of close friends and we were all making the transition together. So when I entered seventh grade, I went about that first day much like any other; feeling...

    Easter Sunday and Kids

    I wrote this after Easter Sunday 2007. I came across it recently and figured I'd post it. Easter Sunday. Big day. As a family that finds a way to run late no matter what each Sunday, we vow to get up early and make it to church early so we can get...

    Stories by Dad

    13 years ago

    Dad never failed to put together some great stories. They would get him out of trouble, help him get his way, and simply entertain. His impromptu stories were a highlight of my childhood and prompted this creative writing for an English class.

     I try to do a new one each year. This one I did for our church. It includes some references that you might not understand, so for clarity:  Our pastor used to have a '71 Vette and speaks of it fondly. Another pastor, Dave, got on the senior...

    86%, but you Might Never Know it

          I believe as much as many American Christians that God should never be excluded from things like our currency and Pledge of Allegiance.  I also agree that the birth of Jesus should be the direct meaning to Christmas just as Easter should...

    After a rough night with triplet infants, they had finally settled in as my “shift” went well past midnight. I sat down on the rocker in the nursery and, as tired as I was, I felt compelled to pen some perspective.

    I read a lot about the public perception of the autoworkers. Since the comments I read are often repeated, I can only surmise that a lot of people are very interested in talking about work dynamics and habits of the typical autoworker. So I decided...
