Hope Begins in the Mind

Since technical difficulties continue to hinder my vlog posts, I have decided to post a previous article on our thoughts.  I will continue with my vlogging as soon as possible!  Thank you for your patience.


Hope Begins in the Mind
So you would like to find some hope for your marriage, even when you see no possible solutions.  Hang in there – there is always hope.
Do you know that our thoughts are the beginning of our destiny, the birth or death of our hope?  That’s where it all starts.
“Watch your thoughts, they become words; watch your words, they become actions; watch your actions, they become habits; watch your habits, they become character; watch your character, it becomes your destiny.”   - Author unknown
The bible tells us to “take your thoughts captive.”  Contrary to what the world would have us think, we can have control of our thoughts. 
Divorce all starts in someone’s mind, in their thinking.  It’s what you do with those thoughts that determine what will happen to your marriage. …

10 Things Men Can Do to Make Their Wives Happy

From a woman’s perspective, though, a dozen roses will earn him one point as would a single rose or even a new car.  Men can  make their wives the happiest by taking the time to figure out exactly what makes her feel the most intimate towards him.  (Sorry guys.  It’s probably not anything from Frederick’s of Hollywood.  That’s your idea of intimacy.) It’s usually the simple acts, not the fancy cars or vacations, that will make us feel the closest to our man.

Get Out of the Funk!

Okay, so I haven’t posted an article in a while.  I have been busy, though, combining my seven years of blog writing into a year-long devotional for married couples.  I am in the process of publishing it as an Ebook so please stay tuned for further details!
I also plan to take a different direction with my blog.  Since I’ve written almost everything I know about marriage, I want to start doing webinars/video blogs.  I will have a live webinar once a week (on marriage and women) which will be open to questions from you that we will discuss.  I will record those sessions and use them as a video blog.  Please keep your eyes open for those details coming soon!
I do have one more article that has been on my heart.  (There may be more down the road.)  I know I promised to not get too preachy about nutrition and what you eat, but I have to share this new revelation with you. (A not so wonderful revelation at that.)
I have discussed, numerous times, the effect that sugar has on my mind.  It depr…
