My wife’s grandmother Kay has been in the hospital since Friday. Since then, her condition has changed from day to day and sometimes from hour to hour. It has taken a turn for the worse over night, and the family was summoned to the hospital this morning. We would appreciate your prayers should God be […]

So yes, I am divorced. Its been over for about a year now. I tried everything I could, prayed for my marriage day after day, and yet in the end Hephzibah still left and divorced me. We went to counseling together and the whole nine yards. Unfortunately, we live in a fallen world and these […]

One of the author interviews I did this year, the authors advice to youth was: “Ask for help when you need it, don’t when you don’t, and learn to recognize the difference.” It amazes me how hard it is to get caught up once you get behind financially. As many of you know I was […]

My parent’s church, St. John Vianney – the church where I was married and my daughter was baptized burned down last night. It is a crime scene. We have no idea what happened, but it is extremely sad for us out here in So Cal. Keep the parishioners, priests, staff, and first responders in your prayers. If this was arson, please pray for the arsonists as well.

[UPDATE] It was confirmed that this was arson.

Nib Endoscopy

January 13th, 2010

Nib is my smart, cute, funny little two year old girl. She’s also a pint sized munchkin. Her growth chart is abysmal, with height and weight starting to fall off the bottom of the curve. So she’s headed in to the specialist for an endoscopy to see if there are any upper-GI or digestive issues. […]
