The Selfie Series: Selfie-Absorption

selfie-absorption

We just got back from vacation. As a family rule, we don't post photos from vacation until we return. This also requires us to have discussions with our extended family, so that they don't post “Hope you're having a great time in Omaha!” It's a bit of work, but it's worth it, as we don't need to leave ourselves or our home unnecessarily exposed.

The Selfie Series: Selfie Reflect

“Selfie” is now in the Oxford Dictionary. In fact, it was named as the Word Of The Year by the Oxford Dictionary. Is that a sign of progress? For the record, I am not anti-Selfie.

Guard their Hearts

Guard Their Hearts

This week I want to address the emotional risks of teenage sex—and not only the risks to us when our kids become sexually active, but the risks to them, too. How do we help to guard their hearts? When parents contemplate their teens having sex, pregnancy and disease aren’t the first things that come to mind. Instead, it’s panic, the mere thought … Read More...

Keeping it Real

Keeping it real…

Today Steve Geyer shares what forgiveness looks like.  He's just keeping it real... Recently I was sitting backstage listening to the preshow video waiting to hear my cue to go on stage. Even after more than 30 years doing stand-up it’s not unusual to have preshow butterflies, but tonight was different. Tonight’s butterflies felt more like … Read More...
