Cartoon of two boys. One is in his house. He says, “Go on without me. I came home late and received a five dollar fine and a two-game suspension.”

Cartoon of two boys walking. One says, “I come from a broken family. Dad broke it and Mom left it that way.”
Yes, I hate divorce. Of course, I’ve never met anyone who likes it. This was a hard topic to deal with. But one that needs to be discussed with compassion and empathy, especially in the church.
I drew this cartoon for K! Magazine.
Cartoon of a boy saying, “A big store like this and they don’t sell pet fire ants?”
The customer isn’t always right. I can’t imagine anyone wanting fire ants for pets. But stranger things have been claimed as pets, haven’t they?
I got this idea when my family drove by the Fire Ant Festival in Ashburn, Georgia. We were on our way to Florida, when we accidentally stumbled into this festival. I was relieved to find out pet fire ants weren’t for sale.
Cartoon of a boy holding a frisbee. The boy says, “They say start with achievable goals. Today, my goal is to catch this Frisbee®.”
The funny thing about goals is they can motivate you to get moving. But if you aren’t motivated, it’s hard to set goals. If you are down in the dumps, it can be easy to moan, “What’s the point?”
If you find yourself in this predicament, I’ve found that setting small goals can help get the momentum back in your favor. And yes, they can be a silly as catching a Frisbee® if that is important to you (and I find that to be an especially good goal if you can catch it behind your back or between your legs).
Often, I can get overwhelmed if I try to reach an unreachable, lofty goal. If you find yourself in such a situation, break that big goal into little, reachable goals. Each positive step you take can get you moving in the right direction.
