Fight For Your Marriage…Even If Everyone Tells You Not To

By | Family, Relationships | One Comment

Do you want your marriage to work, but you don’t know how? You know staying together is the right thing to do, but everything about our society makes it easier to give up and move on. Even the way people talk about marriage makes you question whether staying together is worth it:

“It’s just a signed piece of paper.”

“If you don’t like being married, just get a divorce. It’s that simple.” 

It is easy for someone else to tell you to quit when the going gets tough, but only you are responsible for your decisions. And if you’ll choose to fight for your marriage, God will fight with you.

Throughout the Bible, God is described as our help, our shield, our fortress, and our strength. And in Psalm 33, the Bible promises that “the eyes of the Lord are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love…” Read More

Our boys are ages eight and three, and sometimes they make me want to scream! I must admit that I do scream at times and wonder why God gave me not one, but two boys. Since we homeschool, Jase and Trey are at home with us throughout the day. This means that my house is messy more than I want it to be and that I clean up messes frequently. Read More

Below are a few of these thoughts that I hope will help you be an encouragement to someone who has been affected by abuse. Read More

What I have learned is that this junk is not only real, it is a lifelong battle for many. Read More

Last Sunday I shared with our church my family’s guiding values. You can find them in the message notes here, along with a downloadable template to help guide you through the process of clarifying your own family values. Keeping these values as a priority can be very difficult in our chaotic culture and I often get asked how I/we as a family balance all the responsibilities that come with leading a fast growing church, parenting and homeschooling two boys, having date nights together, training and coaching other leaders and church planters, and most importantly, focusing on my walk with Jesus Christ. The answer is quite simple: Read More

When Culture Shifts

By | Family, Spiritual Formation | No Comments

When my grandparents were growing up, a boy would get a job at some time in his adolescence, graduate high school and move out of the family home, and then get married…in that order. When I was growing up, culture was shifting—a boy would hit adolescence, date at least a few girls, hopefully finish school and maybe attend college, then at some point in the next few years settle down and get married. Today, a boy barely reaches adolescence, begins to date many girls, gets sexually involved, Read More
