I’m A New Dad!

Imagine a nice middle-aged woman walking up to you on the street.

Should We Break Up Because We’re Fighting?

At one point in our relationship, Renée and I fought multiple times a week. We fought on date nights, at public events, and even after church on Sundays.

Why Are Adult Friendships So Hard?

Over the past three years I’ve lived in three different countries. This, I’ve learnt, is an excellent way to get rid of excess “stuff.” When you’ve only got two suitcase's worth of luggage, it’s easy to say goodbye to that sweater you never wear or the book series you finished three years ago.
