Conflict Resolution for Couples

By |September 20th, 2018|

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 |August 22nd, 2018|

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 it hit […]

Seeing Your Spouse With New Eyes

By |July 18th, 2018|

I love listening to podcasts. They are a great way to learn, be inspired and receive encouragement. I like to listen when I’m driving alone or doing chores like dishes or laundry.

How to Stay Connected When You’re Apart

By |April 4th, 2018|

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. Just a few weeks later, I went to Argentina for a semester. We got engaged that summer and spent a few months together before I went back to […]

The Walls We Build

By |March 6th, 2018|

Do you ever feel like there’s a wall between you and your spouse?  

Maybe the wall is an issue that hasn’t been resolved, a betrayal of trust or just a lack of connection and attention over a long period of time.  

Whatever it was, in order for us to work through the problem and tear […]

Love Does

By |February 7th, 2018|

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!

Although it is very much a Hallmark holiday, I do enjoy how Valentine’s Day gives us the opportunity to think about love and expressing it to the important people in […]

The Best Christmas Gift for Your Spouse

By |December 20th, 2017|

You may have already purchased your spouse a Christmas gift. Or maybe you’ve just started thinking about it. Either way, I have a suggestion for all of us that doesn’t cost a lot of money: living a life of love.

We often think about intentionally loving our spouse around Valentine’s Day or our wedding anniversary, but […]
