The Unlovable Wife / The Unrespectable Husband

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – When I say life is hard sometimes it’s so you will know that nobody’s life is perfect and so that you will pray for me as (perhaps) I have prayed for you (maybe without even mentioning it to you).

But I don’t deny that I am blessed. Here are a few things I am thankful for right now: My 13 year old for taking up for his brother this week, my 10 year old for being intentional about reading the Bible (he decided to study Mark this week), the time and money to workout (my reprieve!), and my husband who loves me when I am mean, critical and (feeling) unlovable.

Tough weekend. Life is hard sometimes «Read the rest of this article»

 

Dear Adam: An Open Letter to the First Man

 

Kris WolfeDear Adam,

I can’t imagine what it is like to be a guy! What a load of responsibility (Genesis 3.17-19)! But I’m not going to lie, I feel like you could’ve done so much better. There’s a time to be laid-back and there’s a time to take action. That was an action time. You were supposed to co-rule with Eve, not give into sin.

I wish you would have been the voice of reason. Instead, you blamed her for your part in the sin, but that was a part of the curse that began with the sin (Genesis 3.12).

The Greatest Gift You Can Give Your Spouse

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Trust: it’s the cornerstone of a good marriage. Trust broken is not easily repaired. But sometimes, even with no real reason to be distrustful, we are suspicious and insecure.

Distrust in a relationship breeds frustration, anger, sorrow, and sometimes it even contributes to the justification of the behaviors you are trying to avoid. Trust is vital. «Read the rest of this article»

 

5 New Year’s Resolutions You Should NOT Make

 

New Years ResolutionsClarksville, TN – You said you weren’t making any more resolutions, but you know that’s a lie. You’ve got goals and plans, and there’s no better way than a New Year’s resolution to announce your plans to the world. But let me warn you, some plans are better left unmade. Here are 5 resolutions you should reconsider.

To Lose Weight–Yes, I know, losing weight by exercising and eating right is healthy for many of us, but be careful of your motive. If you are trying to get your ex back, look better than your secret nemesis, or just plain “look smokin’ hot: beware. This resolution will fail.

Tired of Losing Sleep Over Your Decisions? Time for Change

 

CompassClarksville, TN – Is your compass broken? Lost? Never owned one?

We all feel lost sometimes. It’s a freaky feeling. You feel frustrated, confused, even panic stricken. You pull over, palms sweating, try to find your bearings, double check your directions, reset your navigation.

But what do you do if you don’t have directions, navigation, or a compass? You might know where to go, but you won’t know how to get there. You might stop for directions, or call someone to ask for their advice, but how do you know if you can trust them? How long do you wander before you turn around and go back? «Read the rest of this article»

The Key to a Great Marriage

 

Love One AnotherClarksville, TN – Do you want a great marriage? I’ve got good news… it’s completely up to you, not your spouse.

If you want a great marriage, be a servant; serve your spouse. I use the word serve because that’s always been the way I’ve seen marriage – it takes work!

Serving someone, whether by loving them the way they need to be loved or doing something for them simply doesn’t come easily sometimes. «Read the rest of this article»

 

Confession of an Ex-Flirt

 

FlirtingClarksville, TN – Extended eye contact, suggestive comments, double entendres…yeah, I did that.

Some say flirting is okay, even healthy, that it keeps there marriage on its toes.

I disagree and here’s why. When I flirted with men during my first marriage, it was because I was unhappy. I was lonely. I wanted approval from others. I risked my female relationships for this approval at times, not to mention my self-respect. «Read the rest of this article»

 

The Surprising Reason Your Marriage Might be Failing

 

Love RespectIt could be you.

Now before you get defensive, let me say this. It could be me too. This article is for the wives. Any one of us at any time could be at risk for a failing marriage if we miss this big point:

Love Isn’t Enough

This is the part where I tell you what’s wrong with America. We tell girls that being “loved” is the most important thing in the world (after being beautiful, right?). We show them fairy tale romances and doting, chivalrous men fulfilling their every whim. In the U.S., more women do the leaving, a striking 2/3 of the time! «Read the rest of this article»
