TOP PERSONAL POSTS ABOUT MARRIAGE, FATHERHOOD + LIFE.
I have an awesome marriage. I love waking up and living everyday next to my beautiful wife, Brooke. She is amazing. My parents always comment on how our marriage is so strong. They are sometimes shocked by how easy we make it look. After I wrote the post on June's birth and all it taught me I started seeing comments pop up how the love Brooke and I have for each other is inspiring. I appreciate all the love that post has received and instead of just saying thanks and moving on I thought I would share some marriage tips and how we love each other so well. This list is by no means exhaustive and marriage will take way more than 10 steps to be awesome, but hopefully this can be a launching pad to get you going in the right direction.

I was heavy when June was born. Actually, let me rephrase that - I was the heaviest I have ever been in my life. I had spent 9 months gaining weight with my wife and while she had a beautiful baby to show for it, I just had a gut, extra rolls and tighter pants.
Physically, I was at an all time low when June was born. It also didn't help that I severely sprained (maybe even broke) my ankle the day before she was born. I was hobbling around on one leg while my wife was on two weeks of bedrest and we had a newborn to take care of. We were a hot mess. Also, our heat went out the day after we got home from the hospital and it was 7 degrees outside and had just snowed. So, we were more like a hot mess with a side order of freezing-hot mess.
I know that a lot of moms share their birth story, but dads are a part of it too, so I thought I would share my perspective on the most amazing, wild and craziest day of my life!
June was 10 days late. We were ready for her arrival in a big way.
But let me start the story 24 hours before she entered into this world. It was a cold February night and I was at youth group. In the packet that they hand out during small group time there was an activity that said, "Set up chairs in an obstacle course and have races over them." So we did exactly that. We raced, laughed and carried on like boys do. Our last race ended in a tie, and well, we had no choice - "we had to do a tie breaker." That line is in quotes because it has been repeated over and over again by our small group due to the events that followed. During the tie-breaker I jumped over a chair, like I had three times before, but this time I landed funny and BOOM - high ankle sprain. It was bad. Like, why is there a softball growing under my skin bad. Youth group ended and as I hobbled out into the bitter cold parking lot, I called my beautiful 10-day-late wife Brooke and lied to her. Flat out lied.
