I was reading an article for leisure recently and it made a very interesting assertion: that men should know that the purpose of marriage is less to make you happy, than to make you holy. It struck me as interesting because as I prepare for my “Happy Husbands” seminars this summer and fall, I’m going to be standing in front of men explaining to them HOW to become happy husbands. Am I going about this all wrong? I asked myself this question and decided to dig a little deep
Heated fellowship. I wish I could say it's a term I coined but I'm so sad to inform you that I didn't. I first heard it from one of Prophetess Juanita Bynum's sermons (when she was married, now currently divorced). She was sharing a story of how she and her former husband would have frequent moments of "heated fellowship," or in other words, frequent arguments. I fell in love with this concept!

When Lanc
Kori with her WubbaNub Doggy Paci in hand. (One of my favorite pics!) When we took pictures of our daughter Kori, when she was an infant, it was very rare you would see her alone. Her best friend, companion, and comfort was always nearby…the “Paci!” When she was born, my Mommy bought a WubbaNub Soothie Pacifier from the hospital gift shop. We did try giving Kori a NUK pacifier but she just didn’t like it. Kori quickly became attached to her all-in-one plush friend attached to
Scripture Reference: For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith: as it is written, The just shall live by faith. -Romans 1:17 (KJV) For some of us, the need to try something new or to perhaps change the way a task is being performed, is often realized, but rarely actualized. Many times, we may feel the need to break out of the mold, but somehow we just never manage to do so. Change can be difficult, but in many instances, it is also necessary, espe
