Own It

Own It

One morning last week, I was standing at the bus stop playing catch with EJ and Maddie while my friend Will did the same with a couple of other kids. It is a cool way to start a week with the kids and in the fall Will and I are catching up on college football from the...

Worry Can Be a Positive When Done Right
