My husband and I have almost finished reading “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman, and we are convinced that it is one of the greatest revelations a marriage can see.  We are beginning to see how far-reaching this idea of “Love Languages” truly can be… how you can use them to express love to [...]

I don’t know about you, but I’m NOT a fan of New Year’s resolutions.  Why not? Because I BREAK them! That’s why if I start a diet or a gym membership, I do NOT start it in January because it will be bound to fail! (That’s right… my latest gym membership began early December, so [...]

Jason and I began reading “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman the other night, and already I’m fully convinced that this is BY FAR the best marriage-improvement book ever.
Okay, I’ll back up that bold statement….
Back in 2005, I went on a missions trip to the Dominican Republic with my church.  I don’t speak Spanish, [...]

I just bought a book that I am SUPER excited to read…. it’s called “The Five Love Languages” by Gary Chapman.  Understanding how you (and your husband) give and receive love is sooo super important in having a healthy & thriving marriage!
During premarital counseling, Jason and I had to figure out what each other’s love [...]

I was convicted recently … I came to the realization that I have been doing my husband a MAJOR disservice by not regularly, specifically, and fervently praying for him!
“The prayer of a righteous [wo]man is powerful and effective.” James 5:16(b)
Now, I pray all day long… and often it’s for my husband, but I’m talking about [...]

Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner?!?! I’ve been getting my daily countdown from 100DaysToChristmas.com and I just can’t believe how quickly it’s coming upon us (38 days!!)!  My husband is still trying to get away with wearing flip-flops, and I just recently (and very grudgingly) took out my winter clothes!
But…. it’s here.  [...]

“Men and women belong to different species and communications between them is still in its infancy.” ~ Bill Cosby

Ahh, communication….  have you noticed how hard it can be?  Most fights (at least in my marriage) start due to a lack of communication.  Or, to be more accurate, a lack of UNDERSTANDABLE communication.
What do I mean [...]

Did you realize that, as Americans, we are inundated with CHOICES?
Every day, we make hundreds, even thousands of choices. What to wear, what to eat, what to say, what to do, where to go, who to talk to, who to sit near, who to marry, who to vote for.  Some choices are inconsequential; others have [...]

In case you haven’t noticed, it’s been a little while since my last post.  Main reason:  I’ve been in California (internet-less) since Thursday!!

I was at an internet marketing event, the first ever Christian internet marketing seminar called Illuminate Conference.  My husband was one of the speakers, and I was looking forward to learning and hearing [...]

I’m reading a great book called Hind’s Feet on High Places by Hannah Hurnard. It’s one of my mom’s favorites, and I bought it a few years ago to read… but I’m just getting around to reading it now. It’s a great little allegory about a girl, Much-Afraid, who goes on a journey [...]
