Top Five Steps To Forgiveness

I recently wrote a post talking about the importance of forgiveness and how it affects our spiritual lives, our relationships, and really our emotional state.  About that time, Dr. Wyatt Fisher, a psychologist and founder of Christian Crush, Colorado Marriage Refresh, and Fisher Christian Counseling Services, contacted me about doing a guest post on the site.  Luckily for us, he had just completed a great post on forgiveness.  I encourage you to read his Top Five Steps to Forgiveness here and then follow the link to see his full article on reversing unforgiveness at his site. Forgiveness is the...

A Word To Husbands from the Peaceful Wife

As many of you know, my wife authors the Peaceful Wife blog.  Over the last couple of years she has been working on a book that would help women examine if they are living as a Godly wife and explore practical ways that they can transform their marriage and their walk with Christ.  The Peaceful Wife book has just been published by Kregel Publications and is available at most online booksellers.  I am a bit biased I know, but I wish my wife had the resources that the the book offers when she was going through the process of...

Happiness Gap

Is a wife’s or husband’s happiness more important to long-term marital happiness? Being the investigative journalist that I am I set out to answer that question by going to the top source for all things: Google.  A quick search led me to find several studies to definitively answer my question.

Selfishness and Unforgiveness

This past Sunday we were studying the Lord’s Prayer in Sunday School at our church.  What always strikes me when I study that passage is the importance that forgiving others has on our own forgiveness.  I have written about this before but I think it is important to remember that occasionally and look to see if we are harboring any unforgiveness in our lives. It is very easy to let the feeling of being sinned against by someone become a thorn in our side.  It would seem that it would be so easy to just forgive them and take...

Open Sesame! Men Healing Shame

During the Fall I ran a series of posts based on an article I was reading from Dr. John Guarnaschelli.  I thought that he really was able to express how men feel shame in a way that I had not seen before.  While working on that series, I contacted Dr. Guarnaschelli to see if he would let me publish his followup article about men healing shame.  He responded back to me and said that he was working on editing it and was going to have a new version available soon.  He contacted me a few weeks later with the final...

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 […]
