Making Your Marriage a Priority

Making Your Marriage a Priority After Baby

When I was pregnant with my first son, I received more advice than I could possibly process. I couldn’t go to the grocery store without people giving me their (often unsolicited) child-rearing opinions. So around the middle of the second trimester, I just stopped listening.

The Book That Saved My Marriage

To say that I was the most religious of individuals when I got married would be an exaggeration, to say the least. But before we were married, my husband and I did see a religious movie, Fireproof, and it was very powerful. The movie inspired me to read the related book, The Love Dare. But it […]
