Public Speaking

The way you speak about your spouse in public shapes the reality of your relationship.

Usually these are my goals when talking to Jen around friends or acquaintances:

  1. Be funny
  2. Be respectful

Why? Because I’m selfish and I want people to like me more than I desire to show respect to my wife.

Most of the time humor in a large group of people comes at the expense of another person. That’s something I constantly battle with because it goes against everything I believe to belittle another person for a few giggles, especially when that person is my wife.

What do you struggle with publicly?

I'm an aspiring freelance writer and blogger (which doesn't make a ton of sense when you think about it). I started a blog called Our Marriage Project and one about OSU called Pistols Firing. I love both of them, and I love my wife. And I love Kevin Durant, Explosions in the Sky, Tim Riggins, Blue Moon ale, Twitter, and the state of Georgia.
