“My heart is softening” – My wife’s growth

During family scripture study this year we have been discussing the Old Testament.  If your family is anything like mine we have historically focused less on these books in the Bible.  My wife has been doing a great job in helping the children stay consistent in their studies, and we’ve had some discussions outside the … Continue reading “My heart is softening” – My wife’s growth

Turning Red

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdKzUbAiswE In the middle of a movie that talks about a girl finding her place and owning her own truth I found connection in the way ABDLs search for acceptance and understanding with ourselves and those around us.  While no story or relationship can be completely apples to apples I feel there are some common … Continue reading Turning Red

Now what? – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 13

We did it!  We’ve made it through “You’re Not Broken” or you’ve at least made it through my hopefully coherent ramblings about self acceptance and growth as an Adult Baby Diaper Lover (or ABDL).   My question to both myself, and to you, is “where do we go from here?” What have you learned?  What have … Continue reading Now what? – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 13

300 pages and 200 posts

If you want to grow, familiarize yourself with being uncomfortable. It is in that space where we are outside of our comfort zone in which we can improve ourselves in all aspects of life.  When I began running and exercising everything hurt.  It was a continuation of running and exercising coupled with better eating and … Continue reading 300 pages and 200 posts

Parents looking for answers – You’re Not Alone – Chapter 12

I didn't write near as many notes for this chapter as I read it as many of the others in this book.  For me, I struggled with what perspective and purpose I would take in sharing with those who end up reading.  I, like almost everyone else who will read this, was at one point … Continue reading Parents looking for answers – You’re Not Alone – Chapter 12

Why I pad up – The power of proactively padding

I have wanted to read through the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People again with the lens of ABDL, but haven’t been able to get it scheduled yet.  While thinking about this post I almost wanted it to kick start that effort, but I think I will leave this post as standalone for now, and … Continue reading Why I pad up – The power of proactively padding

Looking at it a little differently – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 11

It was interesting to read this chapter because I was not the target audience.  I had to change the lens in which I saw and consumed the information.  Perhaps this is appropriate because when I shared this part of myself with my wife early on I’m sure she had to do the same.  This is … Continue reading Looking at it a little differently – You’re Not Broken – Chapter 11

Not really a book review.. The Midnight Library – The choices we make

Audible recommended a book to me recently after finishing up Project Hail Mary with my kiddos called “The Midnight Library.”  It sounded interesting enough so I downloaded it and began giving it a listen.  It is a shorter book so I figured it would be fairly easy to get through, and not lose track of … Continue reading Not really a book review..
