This Year Will Be Different!

This You Tube video skit is put together by the Skit Guys. They focus on the promise that many of us make. “This year will be different; I’ll keep my New Years resolutions this year (unlike in previous years).” We believe that we can all relate to the things the Read More…

Being One in Purpose ON Purpose

“That they may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you…” (John 17:1) When we read this scripture passage together recently, we were inspired, as it pertains to the purpose of marriage. Jesus’ prayer is that we will be united as one. For us to Read More…

How’s the Climate Within Your Marriage?

Brrr!!! It has been cold outside this winter in most of the U.S. We’re talking bitterly cold. Although, we have to admit that we’re doing better than most because we live in the desert southwest. Even so, it has been (relatively) cold outside for us too. But with all of Read More…

Discussing the State of Your Marital Union

Can you believe another year has come and gone? We can hardly comprehend how quickly last year flew past. And now we are stepping into a New Year. There’s no doubt that “time flies by fast!” (That is, unless you’re waiting for something important to happen. Then it creeps along.) Read More…

Agreeing to Walk Together

“Do two walk together unless they have agreed to do so?” (Amos 3:3) In applying that question to marriage, I’m more than a bit puzzled. I used to think that when a couple says, “I do,” in agreement with God, to “love, honor, and cherish each other, forsaking all others, til Read More…

Do You See What God Sees?

There’s a Christmas song, where the lyrics read, “Do you see what I see?” That particular song “tells the story of the birth of Jesus from the perspective of those involved in the Christmas story.” Yes, we realize this song doesn’t portray the gospel truth, but it’s a nice song Read More…

Be Present in Your Marriage – MM #278

I just read a “one liner” that stated, “One day I’ll look up from my phone and realize my kids put me in a nursing home.” I’m thinking the same can be stated another way, “One day I’ll look up from my phone (or computer) and realize my spouse has Read More…
