For years I’ve been fascinated with parody songs, skit comedy and impressions. But that part of me always lingered in the background covered up by a career and the opinions of people. People told me that if I wanted to be a professional, I needed to act like one. Impressions and silly songs were for clowns.
After I resigned, I remembered the boyish fascination and began to step into it. I started watching old Saturday Night Live skits, stand-up comedians, parody songs and hilarious impressionists. It was like I had jumped in a pool for my imagination and for the first time in years I had the freedom to dream again.
With four kids, it’s easy to get lost in the craziness of life. As I thought about our story and how much of a blessing these kids are, I began to celebrate what we call, “Ham House”. A few weeks ago, my Spotify was on shuffle and I heard Flo’Rida’s song “My House”. The lyric hit me immediately—”Welcome to Ham House.”
This song isn’t just about the craziness of everyday life, it’s about tapping into who you are and uncovering that thing God placed inside of you. No matter who you are or where you are, be courageous enough to follow that thing.
Welcome to Ham House
This is our celebration of laughter, family and the kid in all of us.
