Get Out of My Christian MarriageWe are constantly facing challenges within our Christian marriage. Some of the challenges come from outside forces like work, family, or even church. We allow our emotions to be displaced toward our spouse and we experience a struggle within our marriage. When outside forces have crept into your marriage it usually starts off as a conversation about what is bothering you, and winds up as an argument because the two of you do not see the situation the same way. Women have a tendency to want their husband to agree with them or at best understand why they feel the way they do. Men on the other hand were created to be solution oriented, which means they do not want to listen but rather resolve our issue. This is usually what causes a fight within our marriages because we are not viewing the situation in the same light.  [click to continue…]

Building A Strong Marriage!It is possible to be married, but not a team. Marriage operates best when you see the two of you as a team. Some people have created a five, ten, even a fifteen year plan for their marriage. Do whatever works best for your marriage. The key to working as a team is to work in the areas of your strength. The areas you are weak in God has designed your spouse to be strong. Instead of complaining about what he or she doesn’t do, allow them to do what they are good at doing. For example, Jonathan rarely cleans at home, however, because he works so hard in his business I am able to stay home with our children and homeschool them. So, he doesn’t work inside the home, and I don’t work outside of the home, but everything still manages to get done! I want to share with you what Jonathan and I do that helps us operate as a team in our marriage. I created the acronym F.O.C.U.S. When we focus on our marriage we will develop a strong, healthy, long-lasting, peaceful, and enjoyable marriage. Here are five tips to building a strong marriage in the form of the acronym F.O.C.U.S [click to continue…]

Movie Review: "War Room"A few months ago the pastor of the church we attend decided to have a movie night. The pastor invited everyone to go to the movies to see “War Room.” We were not able to make it. I don’t remember why we didn’t go, maybe our children had sports or maybe we just wanted to relax at home that day, I’m not really sure. Well about a month ago or so, Jonathan and I selected a movie from Red Box, it was “War Room.”

This movie is very powerful. We need more movies like this one. The kind of movie that makes you a better person when you are done watching it. Sadly, most movies are just space fillers, but not this one! I am extremely happy that we watched this movie at home with just each other. The “War Room” is the kind of movie that forces you to meditate on the way you operate your own life and challenges you to change. I do not want to go into too much detail about the movie for fear of taking away the impact the movie can have on your life. However I will give you one example from the movie that woke me up spiritually. [click to continue…]

March 12, 2014

God has placed greatness inside of everyone, however, he expects us to search out why we were created. The bible confirms this in Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter;  to search out a matter is the glory of kings.” In a previous post I explained that everyone was created with […]

Why Do I Feel Drained, After Church?

March 5, 2014

It is amazing how God can take one message given by the preacher and use it to speak to everyone at the same time in a different way.  This past Sunday the word came from Matthew the 25th chapter. The minister used this scripture passage to pose the question; will you be ready when Jesus […]
