Gold Stars or God Stars?

I recently read an article by Gretchen Rubin that listed several mistakes that we all make in our marriages. The mistakes that she lists I think are worth all of us taking a look at and evaluating if we are making the same mistakes in our marriage. Gretchen Rubin is the New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Project and Happier at Home. In her books she writes about her pursuit of happiness in every facet of her life and how she lived out her theories on happiness throughout a year. As part of her Happiness Project, Gretchen...

Are we Responsible for our Spouse’s Happiness?

Last week over at the Peacefulwife Blog, one person left the following comment: I have found it ironic that husbands are not responsible for our happiness as wives (something I am learning) but they measure their success as husbands by our happiness.

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 […]
