These last two weeks have been so hard. The tragedy unfolding in Afghanistan and the horrific loss of life in Kabul last week, a renewed surge of COVID deaths, over a million without power and basic support in New Orleans…these events fill the headlines threatening to overwhelm…


July 2, 2021

Dear Trinity,

Sunday is an important day. Across the country, people will be traveling to see family members they haven’t seen in months, eating great BBQ, and watching fireworks shows that span the spectrum from Mammy and Pappy setting off a couple ground spinners on their farm…


May 17, 2021

Dear Trinity,

We made it! Your mom and I are married, and I am officially your stepdad! The rain held, and the day was absolutely perfect in so many ways. It was truly the happiest day of my life, and I’ll never forget how blurry my vision…

Dear Trinity,

Only a couple of days left. I have been waiting for this day for months now. This is without question the most important week of my life…but not for the reason you may suspect.

It’s an important time for our nation. We are living in…

Dear Trinity,

The darkness outside is pretty thick right now. The rain is coming down in sheets. I just looked out the window and saw poor Joe, the mailman, head down against the pouring rain fighting his way up the street on a late night run to…


December 17, 2020

Dear Trinity,

It was dark this morning as I carried my coffee from the kitchen to my desk and eased into the new chair that you and mom got me for Christmas. I finished my workout early this morning because I was eager to get started on…


December 11, 2020

Dear Trinity,

This letter is the first of what I believe will be a series of letters to you over the coming months. Most likely, you won’t read these until you’re a little older. But I want to write them to you now so that I can…
