Every Husband's Lose-Lose Situation

The Peacefulwife Blog started a discussion yesterday in her post, “We Can Put Our Husbands in a Lose-Lose Situation”. Her post came out of the following email she received from a Christian husband. I think almost every husband can relate in some way with the frustrations this husband is writing about. FROM A CHRISTIAN HUSBAND: Is it really a good idea to tell one’s wife she is being disrespectful? I know if I told my wife that I would get an “alright….” and then probably not hear from her for a couple of days, at least. When asked about...

The No. 2 Pencil Marriage

A friend told me the other day that their child was taking the SAT’s for the first time on Saturday. That brought up a bunch of reminders of my high school days and how “important” those standardized test scores were to a student’s future college endeavors. One of the big things I remember about those tests was that you had to have a number 2 pencil and bubble in all of those circles. You even had to bubble in the right circles for your name and address. I think you even got a certain amount of points just for...

We’re Married, Right? Why Does She Still Feel Insecure About My Love For Her?

When I first started this blog I did a series on topics discussed in the book For Men Only by Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn. I wanted to go back and take another look at this book and maybe hit some areas I didn’t look at the first time. For a modern husband, it is a good day when we feel like we have had a productive day at work, had a little time with our kids, and a little time with our wife. That seems overly simple until we throw in all of the distractions, temptations, chores, activities, and...

Dollars and Mints

After we got married there were a few things that we were sure as a married couple that we wanted to do when it came to finances. First, we were both on the same page that my money was her money and her money was my money. Secondly, because of this we decided that we would have one joint bank account for our money. Basically, all of our expenses would be paid out of the same pot and from the income we both contributed. Don’t take that last sentence in the wrong way if there is only one income...

Public Defender

My Sunday School teacher’s son is an actor and singer in New York. Last week, he made an appearance as a judge on Law and Order: Special Victims Unit. In the episode he is a mean judge and at the hearing sets a lady’s bail high at the request of the prosecuting attorney. In real life, he is a very kind and compassionate guy that is not anything like the character he played. I have another friend that is a public defender in a rural area. He is a strong Christian. Unfortunately, his job is to defend some of the...

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 […]
