Marriage Awakening - The Curse in Marriage 0

The Curse In Marriage

The “experts” say that one key way to catch the attention of your audience would be to offer up a title such as, “The Five Biggest Areas of Conflict in Marriage”.  Maybe it would be about how money, sex, communication, children, or unmet expectations can be a source of conflict in marriage.  This would be a tempting title to write about, but what if I told you that I believe there is a definite root cause of conflict that can be traced all the way back to the beginning? Have you ever read the account of “The Fall” in Genesis 3?  Well, there is...

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.

You are correct that I do not know your exact circumstances in your marriage. However, I know that the wisest man in history, King Soloman, wrote many proverbs reminding us that we should all seek guidance and counsel for all areas of life. Proverbs 11:14 (ESV) says: Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety. A little more than a year ago, a dear...

Log Ride

Ahh, the log ride… One of the simple rides you can find at most theme parks. We have a log ride at our nearby theme park, Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. I rather enjoy this ride. You get to snuggle in close with your spouse and glide leisurely and gently through the quiet trees. There is a little bit of darkness as we enter a tunnel, but we can hold tighter to each other as we see the light at the end. This is where things get a little crazy. The vessel we’re in hits a bump, jarring us...
