Throughout the course of my travels as "The Rock Father," I've had the opportunity to meet a lot of good people that, like myself, are out there trying to make their way while spinning words about pop culture and family. Many unique voices, all united by a love of some similar things - fellow writers and bloggers can often become like members of an extended family... they might be the cousins that you only see once a year (or less), but eventually you come back together and further adventures ensue. One group that applies to is the Disney Blogging Crew - the folks that work in groups of 25 to promote various projects throughout the year. Last year, while working one of those gatherings, I met Tiffany Cruz of Fabulous Mom Blog. A mother of two, Tiffany recently lost her husband in the most unexpected of forms - from complications during a liver biopsy. In an effort to do just a little bit to lend a hand in such a troubling time, my friend Andrew Kardon of Mommy's Busy, Go Ask Daddy, has set up a group giveaway in which several mutual friends are banding together to send some traffic toward Tiffany's site. In this business, "reach" equals dollars, so hopefully we can send some new readers in Tiffany's direction. Check out her site, and in exchange, you'll get a chance to win a SNOW WHITE Mega Prize Pack (over $150 in value) graciously donated by our friends at The Walt Disney Company.

Christmas might be over, but there's still one last piece of the Holiday puzzle that I'd been waiting to post here on the site - one that bridges the year-long gap between Christmases. This year, WWE Studios and Fox Home Entertainment partnered for SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER (covered previously), a new Holiday Movie starring WWE  Superstar Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, WWE Diva Paige and AnnaLynne McCord (DALLAS, NIP/TUCK). Beneath the "holiday hijinks" was an underlying message of doing good, and what it truly means to be "Santa's Little Helper." There's five "Sugarplum Virtues" from the film that completely apply to parenting small children, and making sure that they maintain their spot on "The 'Nice' List" all year 'round!

It's Time to Spread a Little KINDness...

THE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Life of Dad and KIND Snacks for this promotion...

In a time when a lot of what we hear can be less than kind, it's time to spread some kindness and start recognizing the KIND acts that take place millions of times a day. With the Holiday Season upon us, there's more folks out and about, and that makes it easier to spot some acts of kindness out there "in the wild." It can be a simple gesture like holding a door or helping someone when they fall... or a bigger act like volunteering at a local shelter, or doing something bigger like a toy drive (as we did here at Rock Father HQ).  There's a lot of people out there that are #kindawesome, and my friends at KIND Snacks want to help spread kindness by recognizing kind acts. Being KIND has been part of their mission since day one, and on World Kindness Day this year, they unveiled some shareable #kindawesome cards to recognize and share. I have some of those cards... but you can share kindness, too!

November 19, 2015: Tonight, Let me begin with a preface to a letter I wrote a few weeks ago from my hotel room in Berlin while on our final tour for this album. I felt the need to write this foreword in light of the heartbreaking tragedies of Nov. 13th, as this project has now taken on an entirely different tone. As has everything, it seems...

Sticking to your guns and doing what you believe in is something that many can relate to - especially when going against the odds (or even the wishes of your family). I've done that... on more occasions than I should've, but it makes for a good story on occasion. A solid story is what's at the root of THE JOURNEY HOME, and with it's recent DVD release (available at Walmart), the folks at Image Entertainment (RLJ) have teamed-up with THE ROCK FATHER Magazine to offer readers a shot at scoring a prize pack that includes the movie on DVD + a $25 Visa Gift Card.
