Denise Jackson, wife of country music superstar Alan Jackson, seemed to have it all.  Married to her high-school sweetheart, she had three beautiful daughters and most anything money could buy.  Her world included mansions, jewelry, luxury cars, and expensive clothing.

But despite the appearance of a perfect life, all was not well.  Denise’s marriage to Alan was crumbling, and she felt lost and alone.  Having spent her entire adult life focused and dependent on her husband, what was she to do once he decided to leave?

Wedding Day Promises

Today we went to a wedding for a couple from our church. It’s been a long time since we’ve been to a wedding and it was the first wedding that our kids have been to. Having recently celebrated our 15th anniversary, most of our friends have long since been married.

The wedding we went to today was very nice. Everyone could tell how much the bride and groom truly adored each other. And the ceremony itself was very deliberately focused on God being a part of the union and that with Him at the lead, the marriage would be strong.

While sitting in the church, watching the couple exchange vows, a few things came to mind.

Valentine’s Day Tips to Use Throughout the Year

That romantic day of the year is here again. And if you’re like me, it may have snuck up on you.

To me it seems to come too quickly after Christmas. But then again, maybe spouses need to restart the romance after the stress that tends to come with the Christmas holidays.

Valentine’s Day is a great day to do something nice and romantic for your spouse. But even better than limiting it to that one day, it’s a great starting point to begin a round of year long romance.

Make Every Day Valentine’s Day with Romance in Your Marriage

Valentine’s Day is now upon us. If you haven’t gotten your significant other something yet, whether it be a card, candy, flowers, or whatever, quit reading this and go do that right now.

Okay, you’re back. Whew, that was a close call.

Foot to da flo’

Okay, so I talk a little funny sometimes. I’m originally from south Louisiana:)

It’s “Foot to the floor”, you know…on the accelerator in your car.

Anyhow, that’s what I’ve had to do this year. Stomp down on the gas of faith and blow right through the barriers.

Since making the decision to follow God and pursue the path of writing and selling a Christian marriage ebook, the devil has tried running me off the road at every opportunity. Much of the time I’ve just kinda laughed and handed it over to God, but I got really fed up the other day. For pretty much a whole day, I had to do as David did in 1 Samuel 30:6 and strengthen myself in the Lord.
