1. He doesn’t apologize for being a man.  He’s proud to be a man. He accepts his masculinity and knows he’s designed to be different. He’s sensitive, but he’s not a sissy. He doesn’t want you to be like him. He appreciates your differences. 2. He listens to you. He wants to hear your opinions and encourages you to express them. He’s not intimidated by your knowledge and strength. He admires them. He wants to hear what you have to say… Read more

Being a wife isn’t easy. Being an excellent wife can be really hard, especially in today’s culture. Biblical excellence in wifehood goes against everything society says a woman should be. Respect and submission communicate excellence but go against the cultural grain. And it’s easy to go with the grain, especially when life’s hard or you’re tired. If you’re like me, some days, you don’t feel like trying to be excellent. Some days you don’t think your husband deserves an excellent wife…. Read more

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.

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?

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
