9 Lessons I Learned About Being A Good Dad By Having A Bad One

Father’s day is always a bitter sweet time for me. As I scroll through my Facebook and Twitter feed on Father’s day I see countless posts of people posting pictures of their dads with captions such as: “Thankful to have such a wonderful dad!” “Grateful for this guy’s leadership in my life!” “So glad to have such a wonderful father!” “I love this man!”

Hi, I’m Noah’s Dad. Remember Me?

Hi, I’m Noah’s dad, and I used to blog here. Does anyone remember? 🙂

Wow…! It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post and I miss it!  While our Facebook page has remained very active the last few month, this blog has been sort of a digital ghost town.

For those of you wondering what happened to our regular blog posts about our son Noah let me calm your fears.
