Are You Stuck in a Rut of Thinking?

When is it time? Since our family crisis of 2004 my husband and I have asked that question often in a lot of different context. His realization of abuse in his life and confessions of adultery that followed required soul searching, counseling, care of friends and family and time to heal. We have a new […]

Marriage Monday – Just Enjoying

Sometimes we need to just relax and enjoy the moment. We are finding that we want/need to do more of this. To just appreciate the moment and enjoy what we have. This weekend we did a pretty good job of that. Saturday we enjoyed our friends by helping them prepare and then celebrate their son’s […]

Wellness Wednesday – Too Much Stress

The decrease of health of people in America today is staggering. With all of the discoveries of science and the  increased investment in time and money spent on trying to curing disease you would think it would be just the opposite. The simple fact is no pill or potion is going to “fix” us. Think […]

Marriage Monday – Teamwork Part 2

Last week I shared our perspective on marriage comparing it to being on the same team.  Over the weekend we’ve been talking about that team needing to have the same goal. Every good team needs a coach with a vision. That coach shares the vision, inspiring the team to be disciplined, come to practices and […]

I Chose to Look Around and Be Amazed

An old friend, Jan just announced her daughter’s engagement. (Thanks for sharing the proposal youtube. Such fun!) As most of you know our daughter has had two weddings, […]

Marriage is Just Plain Hard

In just the past week we (my husband and I) hit one of “those” moments. You know one that brings up all kinds of thoughts and feelings from the past in an instant. We were needing to leave so only the minimum got dealt with until we were on the road. With a bit time […]

Relationships are Important

I’m not exactly sure where this thought came from. I know no one actually said this to me but somewhere along the line growing up I thought that the only “real” way to make an impact for Christ was to be in full-time vocational ministry. You know, a missionary, pastor or pastor’s wife, author or […]

Weekend Review – We’ve Got a Choice to Make

Valentines day is over. Lots of people are saying “Great!” Others like me, take a deep sigh. It was a busy weekend. We helped with and attended a short marriage enrichment Friday night and Saturday morning led by our friends Mike and LeeAnn Hartwig. It was a good time. It was a fun time. It […]
