July 2, 2012 by


Father’s Day was a few weeks ago, and while we don’t go crazy getting each other gifts for the card holidays, my wife decided to break tradition a little bit and buy me something really special. You can see it in the picture I took above. I was totally blown away that she would make […]

The Demanding Wife, Withdrawing Husband Trap

June 25, 2012 by


Recently, I came across an article written by Dr. Val Farmer, a clinical psychologist who works with farm families and writes a regular column for the Farm and Ranch Guide.
