Tough on Their Boyfriends

“I have three daughters, so I can’t be as tough as I want to be.
When you have kids – especially daughters – they know how to work you.
They’re a lot smarter than we are, that’s for sure. But I’ll be more tough on their boyfriends.”

Socialism & Secularism: Raising the Next Generation

“America’s public school system is in shambles,
teaching what it’s not supposed to teach, indoctrinating when it should be educating,
and raising the next generation in ways it decidedly should not go — and voila,
no wonder socialism and secularism are spreading in quick-time, throughout the country”

The Most Valuable Thing You Can Give

“The most valuable thing you can give your kids is your time – and, of course, it’s the thing you never seem to have enough of!
Spending time with my children, exploring new experiences and sharing in creative endeavors, is my source of joy and

New Christmases always bring these wonderful memories back.”
