Marriage

The guy who ruined Christmas in November

I hang my head in shame as I write this, and I know this is an overused cliché, but if I can save one parent from making this painful mistake, then he or she won’t have to experience the horrors of sucking the joy out of their children (because I have yet to meet a parent who strives to do that). You see, that’s exactly what I did. I sucked…

Has your marriage made you more like Christ?

Bestselling author Gary Thomas poses a thought-provoking question in his book Sacred Marriage:… What if God designed marriage to make us holy more than to make us happy? Great question.

Other woman marry men who are capable of wonderfully…

Tips for finding peace as a perfectionist loving momma

From my earliest days, I knew I wanted to be a mom. I also knew I wanted to take Katie Couric’s spot on The Today Show – hasn’t happened. Wanted to take Sandra Day O’Connor’s spot on the Supreme Court – also seems highly unlikely. And wanted to be the youngest state senator in Nebraska history – my college friend did that…

When me became we

It still makes me smile. It was like today, on June 6. And it was also a Thursday. I had been spending time with a handsome young farmer I had met at church. We had dinner and because the evening was so beautiful, we went to a park so we could be outdoors. At just the right moment, a small velvet box appeared with a sparkling diamond ring inside.…
