DadPad reviews upcoming movie, Moms’ Night Out. From the website, “All Allyson and her friends want is a peaceful, grown-up evening of dinner and conversation . . . a long-needed moms’ night out. But in order to enjoy high heels, adult conversation and food not served in a paper bag, they need their husbands to watch the kids for three hours—what could go wrong?

A father expressing his love exercises an awesome power to shape a life. A father who fails to utilize this power also shapes a life. Present or absent, used or unused, the power of the father is lifelong, and indelible. This sad song wakes me up every time.
Having been in a number of business positions over the past 26 years, I’ve dealt with a lot of consultants. I’m not sure I want to emulate many of them. However, they play a pivotal role in most organizations. They are able to step into a situation and see things from the outside and give a perspective that’s sometimes hard to see for the organization embroiled in the same issues day after day.
