Is Mommitment Just For Moms?


What am I doing here? What would a man be doing on a blog about making a #mommitment? Why would I bother supporting such a venture that has nothing to do with me? I’m certainly not a mom. Last I checked I am not a woman. While it’s true I am a father, fathers don’t […]

If you’re at all familiar with the blogging world I’m sure you know of Brittany Gibbons from Brittany Herself. Well she put out this set of writing prompts for August.

Chris Brecheen Was Right


Chris Brecheen was right. I’m not saying this in the sense that he was right and I was wrong. I’ve actually agreed with Chris for quite some time. It’s just that I’ve never experienced on any scale to truly understand why he is right. I suppose I ought to give some back story for this […]
