Hello. My name is Chet Collins. I’m a stay-at-home dad who happens to also be a writer and a web designer.

I publish new articles every week on the topics of marriage, family life, philosophy, and bioethics.

My love for writing pairs nicely with my love for reading. I keep a list of all of the books that I’ve read since 2018. I also post a review of each book as I finish it.

I’ve been podcasting on and off since 2007. My latest is called ChetCast. It’s a podcast starring my three children as we process our adventures and activities. It’s mainly to keep in touch with our family, but people that I’m not related to seem to enjoy it as well.

I’ve published three books:

Humble Service: Leading Your Family as a Stay-at-Home Dad (2019). My cheat codes for men who serve their families as stay-at-home dads.

The Transition: A Practical Guide to Engagement for the Catholic Man (2014). My best advice for guys who are engaged and preparing for marriage.

Grant Us Peace (2018). The easy first step for building a habit of prayer. It’s now in its second edition.

Here are a few of my favorite blog posts (I’ve written over 750 since 2013):

I’m not on any of the big social media sites. I quit Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram in 2018, and quit Google in 2019. I explained my decision in a blog post.

I publish new articles weekly here and on these websites:
