Are "50 Shades of Grey" and "Magic Mike" considered Mommy Porn?

Thu, 07/05/2012 - 14:48 -- josh

Like many of you, I first heard of the movie "Magic Mike" from watching movie previews on my television (I never even heard of 50 Shades of Grey until it blew up on Facebook).  I kind of got the gist of what this movie was about simply from the previews.  I shrugged (maybe threw up a little in my mouth), and then didn't think anything of it.  It wasn't until the movie was released that it entered my mind again.

Parenting: Experiencing Fun Differently

Tue, 07/26/2011 - 00:00 -- admin

My wife and two boys (ages 3 and 18 months) recently took a short family vacation to Branson, Missouri. We had a blast! This was our first real family vacation since our oldest boy was born. I learned a valuable lesson while on this trip. I had to learn to experience fun differently. Before children, my wife and I could go to places like Silver Dollar City (SDC) and go crazy riding roller coasters and water rides. We could stay in our hotel and watch movies, take a dip in the pool to cool off, or relax in the hot tub with no worries.

Learning to love ourselves is not an easy process. In fact, many people spend a lifetime trying overcome self-hatred, but are never successful. Valuing oneself or having a healthy sense of self-worth is an important componant when trying to function in this world. Husbands and wives deserve a spouse that loves themselves. Children deserve to have parents that value themselves. Bosses and companies deserve to have employees with a strong sense of self-confidence and competance. We owe it to ourselve and those around us to love ourselves. Here are some tips to help you get started:
