An Evening with Astronaut Paul Lockhart (and Larry Bird)

Astronaut Colonel Paul Lockhart was our Membership Maintenance Program's speaker for March.  He spoke in detail about what it is like to launch into space and to pilot the space shuttle.

Freakshow at Venice Beach Spurs Thoughts of Gratitude

Last Monday, I took the kids to Venice Beach.  I was always told that Venice Beach wasn't a good place for kids, but we had a blast so now I'm wondering why all the fuss. Yes, there were a variety of people but they were harmless.  The shops on the footpath were full of interesting items.  We got some friendship bracelets for ...

I Almost Got Deported

I almost got deported when I was in Mexico in 2002.  I was there for a client of mine before I started my estate planning & asset protection law firm.  He had a beautiful beach-front property in Cabo San Lucas that had been overtaken by an American squatter.

Having Fun While Teaching “Truth Seeking” to Our Kids

This year, my wife, Christine, and I have started taking our six children to visit other churches with three goals in mind.  First, we wanted our children to understand other people’s beliefs to help them understand how much we all have in common together.  Next, we wanted to have fun together learning and exploring.  And finally, we wanted to see what …

Family Matters

I have six children: Sariah (17), Nathan (15), Melissa (12), Jacob (9), Rachel (7), and Katie (4).  I would do anything for them and my wife Christine. I know you probably feel the same about your family.  And, if you’re like me, you probably put off protecting them for years because you feel you’re probably not going to die or …

Why Derek Jeter Matters

I know that many folks don’t know who Derek Jeter is.  But I’m glad my children know. Derek Jeter is the short stop for the New York Yankees.  Last night was his last home game of his career.  During this year, every team the Yankees played honored Derek with some type of award or recognition.  They all want to be …
