ADV #214: Power of the Tongue

We’re a week into Lent so on this week’s episode we continue our examination of our family’s values and make some difficult changes (like removing access to certain video games).  We also check in on our Lenten promises and talk about the power of tongue from James chapter 3 and how we’re using that to cut back on snippy and biting comments between our kids.  Lastly, we discuss the impact of the most recent high school shooting and how to deal with the Spirit of the World through a renewal of Total Consecration.

Comic: Designated Chopper

I am apparently our home’s designated chopper.  When something needs chopped, somehow I’m always standing around doing nothing, and thus I am handed a knife and cutting board.  We’ve gone into our freezer and found leftover onions I chopped months (years?) before.

Interestingly, when I showed this particular strip to my therapist, she found this fascinating and suggested I was trying to express something much deeper.  Perhaps this is a metaphor for the way I tend to exert more energy in tasks than necessary.  I attach myself to situations more closely than I should, leaving me with little energy and sometimes overwhelming emotions.

Personally, I think this strip is just about the fact that I’m the one who always ends up cutting the onions.

Comic: Coffee Clatch

Thanks to inspiration from Mac and Katherine Barron, we recently started roasting our own coffee beans and they are AWESOME.  A lot of work every few days, but I think this strip lets you know our opinion of the process.

Comic: Creative Therapy

So yeah, I’ve been in pretty intensive therapy lately.  And my therapist doesn’t look like this dude at all.  But Jennifer suggested I somehow work what I’m going through into a comic strip, and of course I couldn’t take that request entirely serious.  So this is what you get.  Happy Friday!

Comic: Insomnia

As promised for answering my poll from the other day, here’s a re-worked, re-drawn, and newly colored strip based on a comic I did a couple years ago with pen and paper. No doubt, we’ve all experienced our own late night thoughts like this from time to time.

Thanks for being patrons of Imperfect Living!

Comic: Super Bowl Haters

Thanks again for sticking with me as I re-launch the Imperfect Living strip.  This week features a new character based on a buddy of mine.  Those of you who also listen to the podcast I co-host with my wife may recognize this dude and understand why I gave him the t-shirt I did.

Comic: Football IS Fun

I’m embarrassed to admit how many Sundays I’ve spent throughout my lifetime making faces like these.

Comic: Novel Ideas

While it’s been some time I posted a new Imperfect Living comic, I’ve continued to work on developing it in different forms. Then, my wonderful wife totally surprised me at Christmas with a new iPad and Apple Pencil and it feels like a million doors of creativity were opened up. Since then, I’ve been doing more strips than ever, but have been holding onto them so that I can start putting them out on a more frequent basis.

To the handful of you who have stuck around as a patron of this effort, many, many thanks! God willing, I’ll be able to grow this into something more over time. Ideally, I’d love to create enough of these to actually publish them in a book.

In the meantime, here’s a brand new Imperfect Living strip for you, with more to come!
