Parenting with purpose and wisdom, not just by the trends…using technology wisely, not immersively… living simply and beautifully, without unnecessary complications…pursuing health, harmony, and happiness in a whole way.

I believe that we are all in a constant search for deeper meaning in our lives, whether we are aware of it or not.  Meaning that will sustain and drive us through times of greatest joy and deepest despair.  I believe that each of us has been given the very gifts which will unveil the pathway of this adventure called life.  Yet these gifts must be nurtured in intentional and intelligent ways, so we can grow and flourish as intended.  Our mission is focused on understanding and embracing the keys to this journey for ourselves, our families, and our communities.  In my daily life, as a husband, father of eight, as a pediatric psychologist, and just a fellow human being, I, too, am on on this search.  I hope you’ll join us as we pursue the whole life, one full of challenges, but also full of beauty, joy, and love.  In pursuing the whole life in what we do everyday, it here that the mundane can become magnificent, and all of us can learn to find deeper connections with another.

The piece Foundation and  Framework symbolizes two ideas that are critical to our world.  First, it represents the love of all people towards another, regardless of creed, culture, country, circumstance, or any personal factor that may be used to drive division among us.  As all beings created by God, we are asked to bear our crosses, and unite through our struggles in the love of neighbor as self.  Second, this symbol represents the love of a man and a woman intertwined with Jesus Christ through his death and resurrection on the cross.  The world depends on this love for its future and happiness. For both meanings, the inner domains represent the foundations of our lives, while the outer domains represent activities of the heart, mind and soul necessary to live as God intends.
