Blessed are they who thank God for their food and who set aside some time each day to read the Bible and [...]

This weekend, I was given the opportunity to share with a group of ladies at a “20-Something” retreat.  I chose to talk to them about an area in marriage that is often lacking: RESPECT! 
Ephesians 5:33 commands that a wife respect her husband.  Unfortunately, there is no condition on that command.  We are to respect our [...]
