Self-Imposed Limits

June 23, 2016

It is my contention many limits in our lives are self-imposed. You can do almost anything if you really want it! I realise there are plenty of things we can’t do, but most of the time we don’t even get close to those things because of our self-imposed limits. The impossible stuff is beyond the things we […]

What You Put Up With…

June 22, 2016

When we get a chance to talk to recently or soon to married folks, we warn them to be honest about what bothers them FROM DAY ONE! It seems many people think it’s loving to remain silent about things that drive them crazy. Perhaps they think it will go away or stop bothering them. Usually, neither […]

Change Your Story, Change Your Life

June 21, 2016

In my It’s Me, Not You  post I said, “Find what you really need as opposed to the lie-filled story you’ve told yourself.

Maybe It’s Not Just Between Your Legs

June 18, 2016

The last few weeks Lori and I have been doing a lot of reading, thinking, and talking about the way everyone thinks sex is. We’ve found places where the story we all tell doesn’t hold up. We see places where Christians say things about sex indicating it’s how God created us, but we don’t see any support […]

Friday Flashback: Perception

June 17, 2016

I was at the laundromat today. (For the moment we have two families on one well, and we feel it’s wise to limit water use rather than find out the hard way how much we can draw.) My bride did the laundromat run last time; I did it this time because she has a great […]

I Care About Apathy

June 16, 2016

Apathy is another marriage killer. Perhaps it could be called the silent marriage killer because it doesn’t result in anger or arguing – especially if both husband and wife are apathetic. Apathy may not end with divorce; it’s possible neither person cares enough to go to the trouble of getting a divorce. They just continue to […]
