A Mother’s Day Legacy

May 8, 2019

I love the thought,  A MOTHER’S LEGACY, “She does him good, and not harm, all the days of her life.”  Proverbs 31:12 As we think of Mother’s Day approaching how do we celebrate our mom’s?  We think of mom’s job of caring for her children as they are growing up regardless if they are working…

Loyal Opposition

May 7, 2019

Loyal Opposition by Nancy DeMoss in THE QUIET PLACE. PSALM 118:6 SAYS “ The LORD is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?” The forces of Satan and evil are arrayed against the kingdom of God and His people. When you feel swallowed up and overwhelmed by the forces…

Squeezed by Circumstances

April 22, 2019

A great reading A QUIET PLACEPby Nancy DeMoss this morning. Circumstances does not make us who we are.  That would mean we are all victims and that is what Satan wants us to feel like.  Our circumstances merely reveal what we are. They “squeeze” us, forcing what’s on the inside to come out.  We can…

Knee to Knee

April 11, 2019

Knee to Knee Conversation:  When a couple comes in for counseling, I like to get them connected with each other.  The sex life can be dependent on how connected the wife feels toward the husband.  They say that “sex begins in the kitchen.”  Not really but if the wife feels loved and connected to her…

Take it to God…

January 30, 2019

My mother was very critical as I grew up.  Probably because her mother was critical as she was growing up.  The Bible says in Proverbs 21:19 “Better to live in a desert than with a quarrelsome and nagging wife.”  Proverbs 27:15 says “A quarrelsome wife is like the dripping of a leaky roof in a…

As I share with a couple about the importance of a relationship with God and drawing close to him, I share the image of a triangle. God is at the top; the Wife is at one corner and the Husband is on the opposite corner.  If we just focus on our relationship with God, learning…

The Martyr

January 26, 2019

Mark 10:9 “Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”  That is a really hard thing to do as someone that may be frustrated in a marriage.  What do you do when your heart is not in it? As we look at God’s Word, we see that God does not like divorce.  But…

I am writing a book on marriage. Of course, some of these ideas could be used in any relationships.  I am putting my techniques that I use in my counseling on paper so that someday all will be able to have access the information.  So, as I write I would like to share pieces of…
