Check This Out: Better Parenting

By Dustin | Check This Out

Better ParentingThis post is the second in a series called “Check This Out.” The purpose of these posts is to introduce you to other great blogs and online resources that can help you achieve the extraordinary in your marriage and family life.  Enjoy!

In this edition of “Check This Out,” I’m really privileged to introduce you to a fairly new site that I feel is going to be highly successful.  The site is called Better Parenting and, as the name suggests, it focuses on helping you become a better parent.

Better Parenting is headed up by a great guy with a cool name: Eppie Vojt.  Although Eppie certainly contributes, it is a multi-author site, so a variety of perspectives are provided on a wide range of topics, including marriage, family finances, pregnancy and of course parenting itself.

There are a lot of great parenting sites out there, but Better Parenting caught my eye with its great-looking design and the depth of content that’s been provided there in a relatively short time.  I am also a big fan of the site’s mission and approach to giving real-world, practical advice from those that are living the experiences they write about (sound familiar? 🙂 )

In Eppie’s words:

Better Parenting was founded on the belief that you don’t need a PhD to be an amazing parent, and that we can all benefit from the shared knowledge of regular, everyday moms and dads. You’ll find practical tips to help you parent better as well as inspirational stories to pick you up when the task seems tough.

In fact, I believe so strongly in what Eppie’s doing with Better Parenting that he has recently joined our blog network at the Extraordinary Life Network.  We are excited to add such a great site to our mix of high-quality resources, and I personally look forward to working with Better Parenting extensively in the future.

If you’d like a sample of the great articles featured at Better Parenting, I’d encourage you to check these out for starters:

You can also find Better Parenting (@BetterParenting) on Twitter, and they invite writing contributions in you’re interested in spreading your own parenting knowledge!

Check This Out: ONE Extraordinary Marriage

By Dustin | Check This Out

This post is the first in a new series called “Check This Out.”  The purpose of these posts is to introduce you to other great blogs and online resources that can help you achieve the extraordinary in your marriage.  I am particularly excited to highlight fellow marriage proponents who you may not be aware of (yet).  Enjoy!

In this inaugural edition of “Check This Out,” I’m excited to introduce you to a site called ONE Extraordinary Marriage.  The site is authored by husband and wife duo Tony and Alisa DiLorenzo.  You may recognize Tony and Alisa as contributors to the Love Everyday project.

I think it’s safe to say that a primary topic you’ll find discussed at ONE is intimacy and sexuality.  The DiLorenzo’s are fellow Christians, and they do everything with class.  The ability to handle such a delicate topic in a high-quality way is one of the things that sets ONE Extraordinary Marriage apart in a growing selection of great relationship blogs.

Another unique thing about this site is the fantastic Podcast component.  Tony and Alisa take to the microphones each week to deliver a quality podcast on a given topic.  Their most recent show focused on the topic of how we communicate through touch.

If you’d like a sample of the great articles featured at ONE, I’d encourage you to check these out:

It’s Not Talking Dirty, It’s Talking  Clearly

40 Days to a Mind Blowing Marriage (the post that started it all, I believe)

You can also find Tony (@oneonfire) and Alisa (@alisadilorenzo) on Twitter, and ONE Extraordinary Marriage on Facebook.

I’m curious to hear what you think of the “Check This Out” feature in general.  And, if you have a chance to check it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts on ONE Extraordinary Marriage as well.
