Valentine’s Day: Loving Your Husband

Valentine’s Day: Loving Your Husband

Since Valentine’s Day comes this month, all our posts will be on love. Today’s post is about loving your husband.

Certainly romantic love and marriage should go together, but a husband and wife can drift apart. That’s what happened to my guest this week. Author Kathy Collard Miller had wrong ideas about men and marriage and ended up hating her husband. However, she the Lord gave her insights, and she turned her marriage around. Now she is delighted to share her insight to help others.

Discover How to Have a Peaceful Mind

Discover How to Have a Peaceful Mind

Recently, I took my granddaughter to the play ground and watched while she threw herself into enjoying the equipment and making friends. She was free and peaceful.

As we get older, we experience an influx of intrusive thoughts, and we second guess everything we do. Conflicting voices torment our thoughts and rob our peace.

My guest this week was  author and therapist Tracy Taris. She offered advice about sorting through the chaos so you can have a peaceful mind.

Navigate a Tough Conversation with Your Child

Navigate a Tough Conversation with Your Child

Most of us have packed away our Christmas decorations, and now we must pull out the dirty laundry we stuck in the closet. I would rather talk to my husband, a good friend, or even lecture the cat than to launch into a tough conversation with my my child. However, we need to get the facts on the table rather than underneath. Manipulation never works.

Author Lori Wildenberg gave us guidelines for getting started with that tough conversation. She said to find common ground, and approach you child with humility. With Lori’s guidance and lots of prayer, we can do it.

Overcome the After-Christmas Blues

Overcome the After-Christmas Blues

Do you ever have the blues after Christmas?

When my daughter was about three, we took down our live Christmas tree during her nap. When she woke, she went to the window and said, “Christmas tree, please come back.”

That made me sad.

Dr. Michelle Bingstrom

Putting up decorations is fun, but I hate taking them down. When you finish, your house feels bare and cold. So, how can we overcome the post-Christmas blues? My guest this week was Dr. Michelle Bengstrom who holds a degree in psychology. She studied neurology and how the brain works. For instance, she suggested you get outside in the sunshine. The light increases your mood even if you slather on sunscreen like I do.
