The Ides of Marriage: Ideals, Idle Time, and Idols

March 26, 2015 by


You are probably familiar with the Ides of March.  In the Roman calendar they split up each month into three sections.  Each month had the Kalends (1st of the month), Nones (5th to 7th day of the month), and the Ides (13th to 15th day of the month corresponding to the full moon).  So, each […]

Foundations of Sexuality (Part 5): Sin’s Effect on Manhood and Womanhood

May 30, 2014 by


We have been looking at some Biblical foundations of sexuality in the last few posts. Those foundations we tried to establish were that God created men and women with equal dignity, with distinctly different roles, and to mirror the trinity. Today we would like to see the effect of sin on men and women through […]

Are you a Facebook Christian?

April 4, 2014 by


When I think about a lot of Christians that I know their relationship with Christ is similar to their relationship with a friend on Facebook. Many Christians accepted Christ sometime as a kid at a church, Christian concert, or a vacation bible school. The basic pattern was to admit that you were a sinner (check!), […]

Suggestions versus Directives

April 1, 2014 by


In marriages it is inevitable that one spouse is going to be more dominant than the other spouse. That may be a 51/49 split, a 75/25 split, a 99/1 split, or anywhere in between. While I hope most are not on the extreme side of that split, it is only natural that one spouse is […]

Modern Sportsmanship

December 10, 2013 by


This weekend, being an avid football watching junkie, I took delight in getting to watch all of the college football conference championship games on TV. With all of the best of the best teams playing, it is a great opportunity to see some of the most talented players going up against equally strong opposition. I […]

Promise Keepers: Do What You Say You Are Going To Do

March 12, 2013 by


Ever been in the last 5 minutes of watching a ballgame and your wife peeks in and says something like, “Dear, Could you put in a load of laundry?” You probably answered something like, “Sure” or “Ok” and then went about watching the rest of the game. You may have immediately stopped and got the […]

Get on the Ride

March 6, 2013 by


My son does not like roller coasters. Last summer we went to Universal Studios Florida for a day of family fun and it turned into a “fearfest” for him. It was not that most of the rides were too crazy for him, but it was a fear of the unknown that scared him beyond the […]

The List (Part 1): Ground Rules

February 6, 2013 by


This past weekend was Groundhog’s Day. Back in 1993, there was a movie that came out about Groundhog’s Day where a weatherman played by Bill Murray has to cover the annual event in Pennsylvania. In the film, he keeps waking up in his hotel room each morning and it is still Groundhog’s Day. After basically […]

January 31, 2013 by


The Peacefulwife Blog started a discussion yesterday in her post, “We Can Put Our Husbands in a Lose-Lose Situation”. Her post came out of the following email she received from a Christian husband. I think almost every husband can relate in some way with the frustrations this husband is writing about. FROM A CHRISTIAN HUSBAND: […]

When I first started this blog I did a series on topics discussed in the book For Men Only by Shaunti and Jeff Feldhahn. I wanted to go back and take another look at this book and maybe hit some areas I didn’t look at the first time. For a modern husband, it is a […]

The God’s Will Trap

January 3, 2013 by


Has anyone ever told you about a big decision that they were making in their life and justified it by saying, “I believe this is God’s will for me or for my family?” I have often told my wife that if someone tells her this very phrase she should run far away from them. Sometimes […]
