Pollock Husbands and Blonde Wives

  Pollack jokes (referring to Polish people as “Pollacks”) came about amidst the start of World War II. When Germany invaded Poland in 1939, Americans were not very aware of global politics or conflicts, and President Roosevelt had instituted the Neutrality Acts keeping the U.S. out of the conflict for the time being.  When word spread in America of the very quick defeat of Poland by German and Russian forces (just over a month), Pollack jokes came about making fun of the Polish people.  And in that defeat an advance on a German tank battalion charged on by a...

The Power of a Husband’s Prayer

A couple of weeks ago I had emailed back and forth a couple of times with a Christian husband named Link. In one of his emails he told me about a time in his marriage where he prayed for 5 specific things for his marriage and how God had answered his prayers. I asked him if he would write up his story so all of us could learn from his experience.

The show is a reality based program that follows the people that hunt alligators in Louisiana during the one month during the year that it is allowed.

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 they...

The idea of picking a card out in a busy store, picking out a candy box, or buying expensive roses is usually more of meeting a wife’s expectation of the holiday than showing his true love for his wife. That being said, I am not fully anti-Valentine’s Day. If we can...

A Wife’s Story: From Table Talk to Bedroom

Over the last couple of weeks the Peacefulwife has run a series of posts on God’s Design For Marriage is Sexy which looks at some of the benefits of following God’s design. You can read Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4 here. A wife sent in an email with a story that I think is a great reminder to all of us that taking the time to connect emotionally with our wives earlier in the day can pay big dividends physically for husband and wife later. It is also another good reason to spend time together...
