Hmm, as I began to write the title for this post, I thought, “Wow, that’s got a double meaning! I’m announcing the winner of the book “Love & Respect“… but I’m also going to tell everyone who the winner is if they PRACTICE love & respect in their marriage!!”
So first…. let’s talk about the book [...]
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 [...]
This weekend, Jason & I took a nice long walk/jog along the road that leads from our island (Ocean City) to the next island (containing the towns of Strathmere & Sea Isle).

I face the fear of rejection - that if I do something “wrong”, my [...]
Wow, has it REALLY been over a month since my last blog post?! My goodness! What a month this has been! And what a major case of writer’s block I have had!!
However, I HAVE been reading… a lot. I’m currently in the midst of reading 4 books - at the same time! One is in [...]
February was the “Month of Love,” right? There’s Valentine’s Day, and of course…. my engagement day was in February as well! My pastor did a series this month on marriage… we had a “Fireproof” outreach the other evening…. Stores go nuts for Valentine’s day related love … Hallmark cards are splashed in red as they [...]
Not so sure what your Love Language is? That’s okay, I didn’t know for the longest time. I mean, I suspected, but I wasn’t entirely sure. If you’re in the same boat as me, or if perhaps you can’t decide between two (or three), a quiz might be the right next step for you!
