Super Exciting News!


Our lives have changed a lot in the past few months. Some even wondered about our new family adventure that took us from Branson to Nashville in June. Just to clarify for those who were mistaken, we’re not pursuing a career in music. My vocals alone make William Hung sound like the true Ricky Martin.

Nonetheless, moving into a new city, neighborhood and house makes for a pretty significant change.

But that’s not the only significant change that’s happened in the past few months. With the release of Safe House: How Emotional Safety is the Key to Raising Kids Who Live, Love, and Lead Well in October, we also took my website,, on as a new adventure and completely redesigned it.

The website now has easier navigation and the messaging is much simpler. I’m excited for you to see it.

Kudos and shout out to Jane Butler at Creatiff Co. who manages the graphics and redesigned the entire site.

One of the other really cool features is the Safe House book trailer. Thank you, Corey Mitchell for your video editing genius.

Please be sure to check out the website.

As the release date draws near, I’ll be sharing increasingly more about the book and book tour with you, and even asking for your help in joining the cause of helping every child live in a #SafeHouseFamily.

Until then, happy browsing!
