Hello world!

Hello to those who are reading this blog.  My oldest daughter Debi has blogged for some time and so when she flew home for the weekend from Virginia Beach, we found ourselves drinking coffee and talking about life.   What a rich time to catch up face to face for a few hours and drink in the richness of our love and respect that we have for one another.  As she was sharing her latest blog topic, I had to ask some very basic questions:  what is it?; why would anyone blog?; how do you set one up?; etc.  I decided to jump into the pool of blogging and here is the first one that word press set up for me that I can add to or drop.

I hope you enjoy the journey with me as I think about life and relationships and journal my musings and hopefully insights into how relationships grow, develop and deepen.  By the way I along the process of getting into blogging found out the blog stands for “web log” or “blog.”  I know that is not new to most of you who are reading this but it was to me.  So I am toying with the idea of calling my blog  “jlog” for “Jim’s log.”  How novel.  Enjoy the journey with me.

About James Gorton

I am happily married to Nadine, a person I've known for 20+ years. She and her late husband owned Airpark Auto Service where I took my car for years. Four years after my wife died we began dating and the rest is history. We have a blended family of 6 children between us and love visiting them across this country. We recently had our third grandchild between us. We love to hike, bike and ski. I am a psychologist and do relational life coaching for marriages and families primarily. I love what I do and never get tired of seeing marriages and families move to more healthy places in their lives. Five years ago my oldest daughter Deborah encouraged me to begin writing my thought into a blog I call my Jlog (Jim's log). I have become more and more passionate in connecting everyday experiences to spiritual truths. I hope that as you read my Jlog, you will gain insight into your personal life and experience true growth in your personal and relational life.

  1. Hey dad! I love the idea of “jlog.” So “you.” This is great stuff! I look forward to reading more. 🙂

    P.S. Cherished our coffee conversation on Friday morning. You make one mean omelet!
