Adoption, Mentoring and Teen Pregnancy

By now you probably know that Mississippi ranks the highest in teen pregnancy nationwide.   Check out this recent news report.    According to Governor Bryant and his Plan to Prevent and Reduce Teen Pregnancy in Mississippi, youth in Mississippi are burdened with high rates of adverse life circumstances such as: Read More

Love is Creative

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered a sermon in 1957 at Dexter Avenue Baptist Church.  It is definitely worth hearing.  He said the following: Read More

Go Buy a TV

I have gotten on this kick where I like salmon for breakfast –whether it be in an omelet or on a bagel or served Benedict style, throw in some tomatoes, purple onion, cream cheese and capers and it is on.   If you are feeling frisky, you could include a little spinach for color.  While I have been trying to cut carbs lately, for breakfast, especially one including “pink fish”, I make an exception. Every now and then I will go to breakfast by myself.  It is a good way for me to clear my head before I get in to the office to face the day’s challenges.  Read More

Cancer

I’m going to say something that could not be more of an understatement.  Cancer is a drag.  My experience with the disease is next to non-existent, until now.  My sister was diagnosed with leukemia about a month ago.  The doctors kicked the cancer’s butt, but in the process, they took out the good stuff she needs to fight the everyday bad stuff we don’t even think about.  Now minor infections and yeasts and molds can be life-threatening.   Read More

ICU

The ICU waiting room is a terrible place.  I spent 3 days there this week.  One of the reasons I am not a doctor, other than not being smart enough, is because I hate hospitals.  The people that work there seem to be okay, but the buildings themselves depress me. Read More

Cowboy Up

I went on a Christian men’s retreat last summer to Wyoming which was led by a counselor friend of mine named Phil Hardin.  Come to think of it, four counselors were on the trip, including Ron Mumbower and Don Waller from Summit Counseling, a ministry of First Baptist Church in Jackson.  Also in attendance was Roane Hunter  --he’s a great, up-and-coming counselor who is originally from Delta East, which is Macon, Mississippi if you didn’t know.  Roane and his wife Eva will specialize in recovery from sexual addiction, which is a very real thing although it is not included in the DSM-IV (The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders published by the American Psychological Association). Read More

Piglet on Divorce

After catching a few minutes of Winnie-the-Pooh on television the other night, Mollie Ann wanted to read a little, so like the traditionalists we are, we got out the iPad and pulled it up.  We started where we left off before: Read More

Help Yourself During a Divorce

I was a baseball player in high school and college.  It was a big part of my identity until I was around 21 or 22.  I still occasionally have people remember me as a ball player, even though I was on the field very little at Mississippi State where I landed after leaving a scholarship to Mississippi College.  Hitting was my favorite part of the game.  It was a little war between the picture and me.  The battle at home plate is mostly psychological, just like the battle between the lawyer and the witness during cross-examination, which is still my favorite thing to do in the practice of law.  While I avoid court when we can, it is where I made my reputation as a  Mississippi family law specialist. Read More

KEEP CALM and CARRY ON

I should be in the shower headed to the office, but I am writing to you instead.  Last year I was in the habit of writing almost every day.  I was sharing thoughts inspired by our church’s L3 Journal to a bunch of guys.  It hasn’t gone that way this year.  When Emma started kindergarten, our mornings became much more hectic, and if I didn’t write first thing in the morning, it was not going to happen.  This week, Rachel is on a mission trip in Costa Rica with a group called Visiting Orphans.  I am getting a small taste of being a single dad. Read More
