Noah’s Quotable Quotes

So, for the past couple months I've been jotting down some of Noah's more memorable quotes. And by memorable, I mean they had me ROFLSHMBE. Here they are for your enjoyment.

This is Beautiful You

Finally, my favorite post of the week! Every Saturday night I take some of the photos that you have uploaded to the Facebook wall, and I post them here. I love This is Beautiful You because it gives me (and everybody else) an incredible glimpse of who we all are. It puts a face on the awesome people coming here. It gives us a beautiful idea of the uniqueness and diversity of the followers here at SDL. More than anything, it shows all of us just how beautiful we each can be. Anyway, thank you for sharing a small part of yourselves. It’s my honor to put the spotlight on you today. This is beautiful you. Which photos made you the happiest today? If you’d like to send in photos to be considered for a future “This is beautiful you” and other future blog posts, please post them on the Facebook wall (we need lots more!). Only upload photos that you don’t mind me using, and that...

“What’ll it be?” the bartender asked me. I looked around at the people surrounding me. A beautiful blonde. A tall good looking brunette. A guy with pecs that could crush me between them should I let my gaze linger too long.

I’m Christian, unless you’re gay – Live Reading by Dan Pearce

I decided to make a live recording of this post for two reasons. One, I realized that the way each person reads it is different. Two, I wanted something more than words on paper for my son to remember me by.

Putting my child first

I've tried to do three things perfectly as a parent. Two of them I've failed miserably at. The third... I've done pretty damn well.

Vee Vaaant to Suck Your Blood!

When my kid became obsessed with vampires, I decided to actually turn us into vampires. I thought he'd love it. His reaction was a little different that I hoped.

An update on two incredible sisters, fighting to survive.

I told you about Natalie and Alice, two sisters who life has taken to the brink of death. I also asked you for help for what they were about to go through. Thought I'd give you an update.

Yesterday I posted Goodbye Brain, Hello Heart. The response was what I thought it would be. Bravos and Boos. Today I share my follow up response to that.
