Sun, 23 Jun 2013 04:10:46 +0000Hi Carter! Thank you for visiting my blog! And thank you for adding me to your blogroll! While marriage can be scary, it has been so rewarding for me when I've decided to surrender, to give in. But that is on a moment by moment basis. I still fail often. But I wouldn't trade it for the world; I've grown a lot because of my relationship with my husband. Thank you for your encouragement, Carter!
Fri, 21 Jun 2013 13:33:12 +0000Lovely lady... so much to say, but I'm just thankful to connect with your blog and share in your beautiful, honest musings. THANK YOU. While I am not married, but hope to be someday, I've learned a lot by witnessing other relationships and being an only child in her parents' marriage. Hmm, sister, what I can say is that love is most definitely a practice...and I am both dazzled/inspired and terrified by it all at the same time... probably because I am still quite selfish. Write on, my sister (and I've added you to my blogroll...) :)
Sat, 09 Mar 2013 04:39:08 +0000Thank you, Tim, for your comment. I just recently learned about his own story, and found it to be incredibly powerful. To experience broken bones and bruises constantly and to continue to have a positive outlook toward life at such a young age is an incredible testament to us all.

I love Tony's video it actually made me cry, he is outstanding and speaks from the heart. This message needs to be heard by all men. Hey I would love to add value to you, if you wish email me and I will provide you with a free redeem code for our little ipad/iphone app so you can have some fun with your girl :) have a great week, Ines
Wed, 12 Jan 2011 20:17:29 +0000Thank you for your comment, Joe. My husband says the same thing - our society says "this is what you should value in a man," which makes it difficult because men want to please women. Sounds like a catch-22 for men who put (or want to, but feel pressure) God first. But then again, that's what attracted me to my husband 11 years ago. I truly believe that it's up to fathers to teach daughters (as you and my husband are) what to look for when they choose men (much later on!!!). I didn't get that, and I made SOOOO many mistakes before I met my husband. Thank you again! I'll take a look at Billy Graham's TED talk.
Wed, 12 Jan 2011 05:38:16 +0000Great post. There are a lot of problems with the attributes of men that society currently reveres; however, in my experience as a man, we will emulate those behaviors/attitudes, whatever, that we believe will make us more attractive to women. Look at what our girls are taught to value in a man...look for the six pack abs, Escalade and plenty of money and you get all the attention a man could want. I have two daughters and have tried to raise them in the knowledge that the man who fears God first is the rarity in our world. If more women were attracted to this kind of man, things would change. A really cool speach at TED was one Billy Graham did years ago. A lot of atheist's in the audience and he delivered.
Fri, 05 Nov 2010 06:28:44 +0000Hi there, I found your site only today as i'm doing a book report on women who run with the wolves. My question to you is why did you stop? I read the whole book in 2009 after my yoga teacher told me about it. It is really one of the best books i have come across, so if you gave up i urge you to pick it up and continue your work. These blogs may not reach everyone but even one person is enough(i noticed someone else asking about this too) The most deepest story for me is the Handless maiden, i cried and cried but i needed it. This book has bought transformation for me, not perfectly, but i hurt much less and i even stared painting!
Wed, 20 Oct 2010 19:47:23 +0000Renata, I'm with you. I supplement my daughter's learning because I don't believe she'll get what she needs from public school education. We read every night, we talk about everything everyday, we encourage her creativity, and now I'm supplementing her math education with Singapore Math. However, while parents should be involved with the child's education, maybe the parent is absent, maybe the parents are working alot to make ends meet (or to get the ends close). Yet, if you have the means and the ability, by all means, as parents we can't leave our children's education to chance. Thank you for your comment!
Wed, 20 Oct 2010 17:10:00 +0000With this upcoming election I was just talk to a friend about how no one seems to care about kids and education. Being a parent I have made the choice to spend time teaching my son to love to read and learn new things. I think public schools will get better only when parents demand more from teachers and start teaching their kids at home. It's amazing to me when people are shocked at how smart my son is, to me it's simple I spend time teaching him. What are other parents doing?
Mon, 03 May 2010 02:22:09 +0000You are such a great daughter... I am sorry to hear about your Daddy but I am sure that he is so proud to have you as his daughter as well. I see myself in your shoes, I am an only daughter and I too is a daddy's girl. Although my parents are still alive and well, both of them are aging and aging has become a toll on their physical body. I just regret that because I am currently busy with my career as one of theStone Harbor NJ Real Estate Agents. I didn't get as much time with them as I wanted to. I will pray for you and your family. Be strong :)
