How’s your relationship with your spouse or significant other? Are you both feeling connected, trusting, and flirty? Or, do you feel like all you’ve got is a nagging roommate? These 5 Communication Strategies Will Bring The Passion Back Into Your Relationship! Decide what your outcome is going to be. Before approaching your partner, make a conscious decision to achieve an outcome no matter what it takes! Most people try to “wing” the conversation and end up in an argument. “My outcome is to be respectful and supportive regardless of how my partner responds to me!” “My outcome is to reconnect with my partner over the next couple of weeks and this is the first step.” Be intentional!

LIFE. WHAT IS IT ALL ABOUT? When I was a kid, life was about having fun and figuring out how to avoid going to bed. When I was a teen, it was about fitting in and trying to be accepted. When I was in my twenties, it was about figuring out what to do with my life. When I was in my thirties, it was about making money and collecting stuff.

For men, in the “morning” of our lives it’s about making…
Here’s some parenting advice I’ve learned from being a dad for the last 11 years. I wish I could say I knew all this from the beginning, but I didn’t. It took a lot of hard work on my end to break the bad habits I didn’t even realize I had! It also took an incredible amount of love, patience, and support from my extraordinary wife, Stacey. All the inner struggles and uncomfortable feelings I went through (swallowing my pride, keeping my Ego in check, not making excuses, etc.) were worth it. I’ve got two amazing kids who will grow up to contribute in big ways because they believe they can! Here’s a few lessons I learned. Perhaps it will help you. If you’re already doing this, good for you! If not, start today. You’ll be glad you did and so will your family! Avoid teasing your kid(s). I grew…
