C-A-U-S-E

Let’s continue trying to get out of the Downward Spiral of Doubt that is created when your wife has insecurity about your love for her. In this post we are going to look at some things that Shaunti and Jeff Feldhaun found surprising when they interviewed wives in their book, “For Men Only” and look at some of the things that can cause these doubts to creep out to the surface. I know that as a husband I want my relationship with my wife to be in good shape, but how much time do I spend thinking about whether...

Stopping the Downward Spiral of Doubt

I spent years pursuing my wife. I talked with her about my dreams, goals, and future plans. I carried her out to nice restaurants, movies, concerts, and all types of fun activities. I made it a point to show her I loved her by cuddling, hugs, kisses, and telling her how much I loved her. Now that we are married, she knows that I love her and I will love her forever, right?

The practice has taken place for generations and the thrill that the big one is close to 14 foot long and over 1000 pounds. Each of the hunters have their own special blends of bait and tricks to try to lure the big one to bite their hook. Typically, each of the boats...

The Respected Husband: It started in a Coffee Shop

Where do I begin? Back several years ago, the Peacefulwife and I were in our church’s book and coffee shop waiting while our kids were attending AWANA. We often times head over there because it is a great place to catch up with each other and maybe have a smoothie. While we were there she ventured over into the books section and came back a little bit later with a book called “Love and Respect” by Dr. Emerson Eggerichs. Well, the Peacefulwife loves to read, but self-help style books typically meant bad news for me, particularly books that might...
