Something to Stu Over

There are a few sayings that I totally disagree with. And here is one of them…

Your knight in shining armor will come one day and sweep you off your feet.

Let me say this right now…

I’ve always loved Disney movies. You know those enduring classics with the prince and or knight in shining armor that swoops in to save the princess from the villain or villainess and then they live happy ever after.

Those are great movies but they also give false ideals on what life is really like.

Here is why I say that…

A lot of young girls grow up believing that once they get married everything will be fine. They’ll get away from their parents(the villains) and be happy. No…they will not. Because they married for the wrong reason.

Maybe a young girl falls in “love” with the first boy that shows her attention. This…

The Messy Places

This is just too beautiful of a post NOT to share! Such a wonderful post of truth on marriage! I love how Jordan prays for a heart of discernment for her husband at the end.

Grace Waves

Today, as I was putting away a folded pile of laundry, I realized that of all the rooms in our house, our bedroom is usually the messiest. Logically, I suppose it makes sense. We want people to feel welcome in our home, so we spend most of our time cleaning the rooms they are going to see.

But how often is our marriage that way?

We spend the most time working on the pieces other people will see so we can portray a picture-perfect family to the world. But when we get to the intimate side of marriage, or the room where it’s really just the two of us, what have we left untouched, uncleaned, or unsaid?

Living with a toddler and a baby, it’s easy to put their needs ahead of each other’s needs. When there’s never-ending laundry to do, dishes to clean, toys to pick up, and meals…

Snakes In The Playground

Dear Fathers, I know we look forward to walking our little girl down the aisle one day. I also know that many of us do not want that to happen until she is like 40. I believe that all of us want to do that, not only with a smile on our face but one… Continue reading Snakes In The Playground

G Is For Grateful

One of the easiest ways to show how grateful you are is with two words...thank you. Show your appreciation for that dinner...say thank you! Many times your spouse may not be in the mood for sex and yet they agree to please you...say thank you! Heck, even if you both want it...say thank you as… Continue reading G Is For Grateful

Power Of A Praying Husband

Men, when we pray for our spouses we need to remember that we are to love them as Christ loves the church..selflessly! While in the garden of Gethsemane Jesus prayed not my will but thine. Do not ask God to change your spouse because there are things you do not like anymore. All people change… Continue reading Power Of A Praying Husband
