Finding Time to be a Father

I meet with a group of men from the church every other week where we discuss topics that we face as husbands and fathers. It is really a great group where we try to support each other in living in a manner that is in line with God’s teaching.

Changing Your Attitude: The 80/20 Marriage Rule

I recently saw an article by Dr. Douglas Abbott where he made reference to a short story he read entitled, “80 percent I love you, 20 percent I hate you.” Basically the story looks at a middle-aged man in a 15 year marriage who is dissatisfied in his marriage.

It is like they can’t catch a break and every time they seem to get things under control the wind shifts and they are back to square one. Everyone is going to have to...

Remember that these are not meant to be “Ways to Feel Guilty about What I Don’t Do For My Wife” or “I Must Be Really Lazy in My Marriage”, but just some things to think about and see if there are some ways that you...

How Can I Know God’s Will for Me?

Photo by Jurica Koletić on Unsplash Sometimes, I think that we tend to assume that the most important things about God’s will are the external things. The decisions we make about who to marry, what job to take, what house to buy, what school the kids should attend, etc… But it is my belief that […]

How Can I Find God’s Will for Me?

Sometimes, I think that we tend to assume that the most important things about God’s will are the external things. The decisions we make about who to marry, what job to take, what house to buy, etc… But it is my belief that those things, though important, are quite secondary in God’s eyes to the […]
