Marriage and Family Matters


God Gave Us Family

The newest installment in the “God Gave Us” children’s book series is full of warm fuzzy feelings! Little Pup is traveling to a family reunion with his mom and dad.

8 Lies People Tell You About Marriage

We have celebrated nine years of marriage so far. I would be lying if I told you that it was all rainbows and bonfires. Our friends would joke and say that we have the “perfect” marriage. It’s not. Really, it’s not. Sure, we put on smiles if we are fighting or disagreeing over something, but […]

#10 Exercise Grace Every Chance You Get

#4 Be Intimate

CAUTION: SEX IS DISCUSSED IN THIS POST… Intimacy. Let that word soak in for a bit… What comes to mind when you think of intimacy? (…sex…?) Did you think of something different? If you did, good for you! Intimacy is about more than sex! Yes, sex is great and God designed it for couples to […]
