Learning To Forgive the Man I Don’t Want To Be

Issue 09 of STAND Magazine is officially out in the world, and it includes my essay “Learning To Forgive the Man I Don’t Want To Be.”

Learning To ForgiveThis is the most vulnerable piece of fatherhood writing I’ve done. I dug deep for this one and hope it helps others.

As ever, I deeply appreciate the continuous support of Editor-in-Chief Dwayne D. Hayes and everyone at STAND.

Learning To Meet a Need

My newest fatherhood reflection, “Learning To Meet a Need” — a.k.a., my love letter to Don Freeman’s classic picture book Corduroy — is now online at STAND Magazine! It’s the next in my series of essays on fatherhood as learning.

As always, a big thank you to STAND Magazine Founder/Managing Editor Dwayne D. Hayes for his solidarity!
