GOD FIRST. YOUR SPOUSE SECOND. YOUR CHILDREN NEXT. OTHERS LAST

I’ve written several posts related to this if I’m not mistaken. One of which is “Who Takes Priority?” Here.  This is not so much of a new subject on the blog, but I want you to hold a little longer and read to the end. In my previous posts, (you can be selfish), (who comes...

You feel he is busy and has other ‘important’ things he has to do. Who told you so? Except he expressly states so which even begs a question...

IT’S A JOINT RESPONSIBILITY

This thing called marriage is a a joint responsibility anyhow you want to see it or explain it. If one person is bearing the burden alone in any area, there will be strains. YOU CAN ALSO READ: ARE YOU HELPING HER?  However, how you (as a couple or would be couple) want to share the...

BOOK OF THE MONTH: THE SPIRIT-FILLED FAMILY

If there’s a book that spans decade and written in a different century but still maintains its relevance in our own generation, it is “The Spirit Controlled Family,” by Tim and Beverly LaHaye.
