One of my favorite books is The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. If you haven’t read it, definitely put it on your reading list. We often give it as a wedding gift. The premise of the book is that we all have a primary love language, a specific way in which we feel most [...]

Conflict Resolution for Couples

How well do you and your spouse handle conflict? While conflict isn’t usually fun, it is an inevitable part of relationships because all relationships are comprised of sinners. We don’t always see eye to eye. We hurt each other. We misunderstand each other. We say the wrong thing. We react in our anger. We’re selfish. [...]

Being Marriage-Centered

By |2019-03-16T22:18:51-06:00August 22nd, 2018|Blog|

My pastor gave a message a few months back and asked this question: “Is your family child-centered or marriage-centered?” He then went on to say that our families need to be marriage-centered, not child-centered. At first I balked a bit, Of course our marriage is child-centered, those children made us a family.   But then [...]

When my husband and I started dating, we attended different colleges in different states. We had been friends in high school and reconnected over a Christmas break.

What’s your opinion of Valentine’s Day? I find that people either love it or hate it. In either case, Valentine’s Day is just a week away!
