Date Night Comedy – Springfield

  A few years ago while we were speaking at the International Marriage Conference in Phoenix, AZ, we ran into Ted Cunningham for the first time.  Every evening before the main event they prepared a meal for all the contributors of the conference.  As we were finding a place to sit down to enjoy our meal, little did we know that we would land next the keynote speaker for that evening who just so happened to be Ted.  We laughed and joked with him about things we had in common such as living in the Ozarks of Missouri. We also had...

Marriage Awakening - What to do if your spouse is having an affair 0

What to Do if Your Spouse is Having an Affair

If you’re reading this post because you have found out that your spouse is having an affair, then let me be the first to offer you a little encouragement. An extramarital affair does not have to mean the end of your marriage. Often times, the initial shock of betrayal sends you into a fight or flight mode, and you feel torn between screaming and yelling, or just running away to hide. If you’re not in this situation, I hope that you read this post for several reasons. Whether you find yourself counseling a friend some day or you find your own...

Forsaken

Some of you may have heard the FamilyLife Today broadcast “The Complex World of a Blended Family“, specifically “From Broken to Beautiful” on July 5, 2016, and “Step Parenting Challenges” on July 6, 2016.  We briefly discussed the challenges and victories regarding our testimony of how Christ has worked and continues to work in our blended family.

We know that there are people out there who are in a very similar circumstance as we were in years ago.  Maybe you can’t see...

God’s Promises

Many times in my life, I’ve looked out the window to spot a beautiful rainbow arching across the sky. I would smile and find myself feeling surprisingly closer to God than I had a moment before. The children and I snap photos with whatever camera device we have handy while Jerry drives along asking if we got a good shot. We would look at the photos and show each other, laughing and feeling blessed to have seen a rainbow in the sky even when it didn’t appear to be raining. Rainbows have always been very significant to Jerry and me,...
