31 – Sexpectations (Get Some)
Oct 1 • 16 min
I’ll start here: I was a virgin when I married Jeanette. She wasn’t. Given the “purity-ring” idealism I’d been raised with and the resulting expectations about the way life “should happen,” I almost allowed that reality to ruin our dating relationship…
30 – I Only Have Eyes for You (& Your Penis)
Sep 24 • 21 min
Beyond our situation, what we’ve learned through our work at XXXchurch is that wives, in general, have a difficult time believing that they live up to the women their husbands see every day – on the street, on a billboard, watching porn. The comparisons…

25 – Just Say No (To No)
Aug 20 • 36 min

24 - Not So Talented Shows (Yet)
Aug 19 • 16 min
I’ve always hated talent shows, and I’ve always thought that we should probably be calling them something more appropriate, like: Not-So-Talented-Shows. Like, “Hey, would you like to come watch me be not-so-talented on stage tonight?” That was before my…
23 – Alice Cooper Was Right (School Sucks)
Aug 6 • 21 min
Our education system is broken, and with over one trillion dollars in U.S. College debt, I think it’s a waste of time and money. Of course, God decided it’d be fun to give me a daughter who is a Number One on the Enneagram – the Perfectionist – who wants…
22 – The Babysitter Club (How To Be A Responsible Adult)
Jul 30 • 33 min
