You never know what the morning will bring. I just got into a weird little skirmish with a fellow who believes that there is only one kind of generosity, and that is having as many babies as possible.

My interview with Ignitum Today


Great interview with Bonnie Engstrom of Ignitum Today is up today.  An excerpt: You talk a lot about how you and Damien have grown and overcome a lot of the struggles you had early on in your marriage.
