What is a Group Name for FamilyLife Weekend to Remember?

What Advice Do You Give Teens When Their Parents Are Fighting? - Episode 45 FTQA

Quelf Box.jpg(1:01) Olivia bought a new game for our family game nights, Quelf! Quelf? Yes, Quelf. We do our best to explain it, but it was a lot of fun. Here’s the Amazon Affiliate link so you can check it out for yourself. Jacob’s question to me was what I liked about playing Quelf.

(5:58) Another family milestone was reached this weekend when Olivia and I let Jacob go out with friends to the movies without parents close by. Yikes! So, Jacob and I take time to discuss the experience and the movie he watched, “Taken 3.”

(8:27) My question to Jacob was, “What advice do you give to your friends when their parents are fighting?” The inspiration for this question comes from my own curiosity. He has some close friends who are good kids and they share with Jacob from time to time their parents are fighting---again. He’ll spend hours talking with them, cheering them up, encouraging them, and I just wanted to know what kind of stuff they talk about.

(10:12) Do Olivia and I fight (argue) a lot? If so, what do we argue about? What is our #1 argument topic?

(15:42) Weekend to Remember BOGO until January 26, 2015. Go! GO! GOOOO! (Discount) Group Name: CorpusChristi

(18:01) One minute of Jacob eating potato chips in the car. He was really loud one day, and I recorded his chewing to prove it to him.

I Just Submitted My First Article to the Good Men Project

I have a goal for 2015 to get published on Good Men Project, an online magazine that is about what it means to be a man in the 21st-Century. There are bloggers I enjoy reading who have been published on GMP and I often wondered how they did it. Once I got tired of wondering, I simply asked a group of dad bloggers on Facebook and they sent me this link to submit an article of my own.

I’ll see what it takes to get published once, then determine what it will take to get published once a month. There are some authors who get published multiple times a week, so you can get an idea where I hope to go with this.

My hope is that I can increase my reach with what I share to help others build a marriage and family that leaves a legacy. Wish me luck, keep me in your prayers, and I’ll keep you posted.
