Words from a Father

Husband of One, Father of Four

430. Workout Basics

All you’ll ever need is push-ups, pull-ups, crunches, and some cardio.

429. The Ocean

Answer the ocean’s beckoning.

428. Politicians

Politicians are not to be trusted — not with what they say they’ve done, with what they say they’re doing now, or with what they say they’ll do soon.

You’ll only make this mistake once.

427. Good Versus Right

Parenting well is not about being right, but about being good. For instance, being right in a family disagreement — or any type of disagreement — is far less important than being charitable, upright, and true with those involved.

426. The Legacy of Overcoming

We are not wounded by the victories of character in our parents, but by how their character has failed.

That means, then, that a large portion of parenting is being able to overcome your own vices in such a way that you pass on your victories to your children rather than your failures.

425. Baby Sleep

Sleep when the baby sleeps. It won’t last longer than two hours.

424. Newborn Worries

Don’t worry. You’re going to be a great parent. Better than us probably.
