Talk is cheap, act now
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Let me know if you ever feel this way: The whole idea about blessings is becoming more and more clear to me every day. I don’t know if it’s age or not, but life’s experiences do bring perspective to one’s outlook regarding the notion of being blessed. I mean, haven’t we all been taught that it’s better to give than to
 
Share your faith with seekers and skeptics
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
If thinking about the concept of apologetics (communicating the core themes of Christianity to people who don’t yet have relationships with Jesus) brings to mind worries about getting into defensive or even hostile conversations with people, stop right there. Sharing your faith with others through apologetics doesn’t ever have to be a negative
 
Freedom ain’t free
Tuesday, August 26, 2014
Let’s talk a little bit about freedom. I’m referring to the freedom afforded all of us through Christ.

10 men Christian women should never marry
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
My wife and I raised four daughters — without shotguns in the house! — and three of them have already married. We love our sons-in-law, and it’s obvious God handpicked each of them to match our daughters’ temperaments and personality. I have always believed God is in the matchmaking business. If He can do it for my daughters, He can
 
Marriage power struggles are exhausting
Wednesday, August 13, 2014
I watched yet again as a couple attending a marriage intensive here at The Marriage Recovery Center clawed and fought for what they wanted from each other, all the while becoming more and more exhausted and discouraged. “Do you notice what is happening here?” I asked.
