I NEED a MIRACLE! (A very special prayer request) by Elizabeth Nieves
Elizabeth and her husband, Diego, are trying to adopt two very special little girls from Mexico. Please take a look and consider praying for them.
Funny Family Quotes by Joey Aszterbaum
Thankfully, my friend Joey has been spotted around the Rain more often over the past week or so, and this post was a keeper. The title is self-explanatory - enjoy!
My most transparent post EVER.. by Ginger Wilcox
Ginger was away from the Rain for a couple of months. This post helps to explain what happened.
I'm trying to help my kids understand me! by Todd Clark
Todd is a creative father, and I love the method that he describes in this post to help his kids understand him.
Time For A Baby! by Jennifer Bukaty
The headline alone was enough to include this post from Jennifer.
Are you a daddy with a daughter or two? This is for you! by Simon Conway
Simon mentioned me in his post, which was enough to warrant its inclusion here. Actually, that's not entirely true. This one hit close to home and it made me laugh out loud. Enjoy!
Tiny Steps by Paul Slaybaugh
No jokes necessary here. This is just really good writing about a really special event for Paul's son.
My funny and intriguing son by Jason Crouch
My nine-year-old son is exceptionally mature and funny sometimes. I thought I would share some more funny recent quotes and experiences.
If you haven't joined or even visited the group yet, here is the description that I wrote there to give you some idea of what we are all about:
First question: Is this a fan club for the 80's sitcom? No. I just wanted to think of something memorable for this group. This is meant to be a fun place to escape the daily drama of the real estate industry. Please feel free to post any family stories or lessons here. We envision this as a great place to share funny stories about kids, marriage, siblings, parenting, or anything family-related. Posts may relate business to family life, or they may be about striking a healthy balance between career and life. Welcome to Family Ties!
So come on over and check it out! We're like one big happy family in this great group! If you aren't visiting this group, I can assure you are missing out on some terrific writing. I look forward to seeing you there. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
