No One Needs an Ishmael!

April 16, 2014

Recently I linked to a great article from Calm.Healthy.Sexy. Here is part of the post: “This idea – that some things can’t be forced to happen on our schedule – applies to so many things.  Changes we want to see in our marriages, decisions we want our children to make, the outcome of an illness, our […]

The Bigger Piece of Ham Effect

April 15, 2014

Recently our pastor mentioned a true story about a church split. The two sides went to court (really?) but the court sent it back to the denomination.

April 10, 2014

Yesterday in Charity and Love Begin at Home I talked about doing for other people things we are not doing them at home. I know men who say yes to everyone else most of the time, while often saying no to their wife. Understanding why we do something can help us change, so why do men do […]

Charity and Love Begin at Home

April 9, 2014

One of the comments on the What Your Wife Wants You to Know survey read: “Why is it more important to help other people before you help me? — Why is it easier to say no to me and yes to someone else?” I have been guilty of this. When I owned a landscape and irrigation company, […]
