Hi.

My name is Ryan. I'm a thirty-something father of two located in Sacramento, CA. I'm a former pastor and recovering evangelical. I blog at the intersections of fatherhood, faith, art and science - all things I find sacred. 

Settling Down

Settling Down

*disclaimer: I might be wrong. 

I'd like to start here and just say that family is hard work. I dislike that it's often referred to as "settling down" because there is nothing settling about it. In fact, it might be just the opposite. 

Love is war.

Waking up and choosing to engage takes everything you've got and more. I've had a lot of days recently where I just feel so unworthy of it. Luckily this little unit is there to pick me back up, brush me off, and help me move forward again.

This is just a simple shout to those other parents out there like me who just wonder what the hell they are doing and if its even making a difference. 

You are.
