We found some baby birds in our yard last week. Really new baby birds. They looked like they’d just popped out of their shells. No feathers. They were lying on the ground waiting to be something’s dinner. We could see the nest in the tree. Undisturbed. “What kind of self-respecting mother bird would throw her babies out of the nest?” I thought. They didn’t even have feathers yet. What a creep of a mom. I was really disgusted with her…. Read more

Fighting stinks. When things get heated, it’s easy to say something you’ll later regret. So when you sense the conversation heading in that direction, back off. It’s the fastest way to stop an argument before it starts. In our modern era of girl power, backing off isn’t always a popular option. But in many cases, it’s the best and can save a lot of wear and tear on your marriage. If your husband says or does something you don’t like, you… Read more

Has your husband ever said or done something that was completely insensitive and hurt your feelings? He might’ve started it, but you got in a few verbal jabs of your own. You part ways before the thing’s settled because you each have a thousand other things to do–kids’ baths, pay bills, make lunches–so when you come back together later that night, the issue is still unresolved. He’s most likely forgotten about it. But you haven’t. That thing about “not letting… Read more

Are you fatigued and depressed? Are you gaining weight but losing your hair? Is your marriage in shambles because in addition to everything else, your sex drive is missing in action? You could be suffering from hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism affects millions of people worldwide, mostly women. Yet it’s one of the most unrecognized and misdiagnosed illnesses in the world. It can make you think you’re losing your mind. You’re grumpy and overwhelmed by simple tasks. I wasn’t suicidal, but death didn’t sound bad…. Read more

It’s hard to stay married to the same guy forever. Believe me, I know. I’ve been married to three. Let me explain. I’ve been married once, but over the course of 32 years, I feel like I’ve been married to three different men. The man I married more than 30 years ago is not the same man I’m married to today. Marriage is hard in the beginning. It still has its challenges. Maybe you’re in a tough season of marriage right now. Are… Read more

Can you believe how politically correct we’ve become? Are we really afraid to wish someone well by saying “Merry Christmas” because we might offend them? Seriously? Being politically correct (PC) isn’t always driven by a concern for others. Sometimes, it’s driven by fear. For years, I caved to political correctness because I was afraid what others would think if I didn’t. I used sex as a weapon. Everything short of giving birth was divided in half. And it nearly destroyed… Read more

It’s easy to respect your husband if he’s a nice guy. But what about when he’s insensitive or sarcastic or leaves his clothes on the bathroom floor or refuses to help out or is just plain mean? What if your husband is a jerk? Every husband does jerky things now and then.  And I’m not talking about jerks who are physically or emotionally abusive. I’m talking about a man whose behavior makes you cray-cray. A man who makes decisions and… Read more

Are you married to a guy who’s always right? It can be downright frustrating to have iron-clad ev-i-dence he’s wrong, and he still denies it. You want him to admit  he’s wrong, but sometimes you have to ask yourself, “Is it really worth it?” In most cases, it’s probably not. When’s the last time he said, “Wow, Honey, thanks for telling me all the things I’m doing wrong. It really helps”? Probably never. Trying to prove he’s wrong most likely… Read more

How you remember the days. Horizontal hula, knocking boots–whatever you called it, you couldn’t get enough. He was so hot. Before bed (or any time of day), you donned your lingerie or even hopped in the sack in your birthday suit. Now you’re scratching your head and asking yourself,  “Why don’t I ever want to have sex?” He’s still sexy, but now at the end of the day you barely have energy to put on your raggedy plaid pajama bottoms… Read more

You could talk for hours before you got married. It seemed you could talk about anything. But somewhere the lines of communication have unraveled. Now when you try to talk to him, he just walks away. Or he gets angry. Effective communication in marriage is getting harder and harder.  “I’ve had it. I finally just blew up,” Kendra posted in her Facebook group. “He’s so rude. Whenever I try to talk to him, he just walks away.” Kendra’s problem is… Read more
