Fireproof: A Movie For Every Marriage | Review

About 5 years ago my husband and I watched Fireproof, a faith-based film that follows a marriage through brokenness to restoration. I thought I had reviewed it and shared it on my blog for others to know about, but I checked recently and didn’t see it. Despite being nearly 8 years old, this movie is very relevant for every marriage. I highly recommend it.  I rented it from Amazon recently for the second time and took a few notes. Buy DVD HERE Rent Movie HERE This is a great movie for couples to curl up on the couch together or watch in bed together. I feel like it hits some specific points on marriage that most couples can relate with. It also provides an awesome

When You Decide To Initiate, And A Fight Breaks Out Instead!

Today’s topic of discussion is initiating. When it comes to sex, someone has to be the one to start it, to turn the flame on, to let the other one know it’s time to get busy. Initiating does not come easy to me. I didn’t see this as a problem until a few years into marriage. My husband got his feelings hurt by me because I rarely initiated. He wanted to know that I wanted him and desired him. Initiating was evidence of that. Once I knew how my husband felt, I wanted to change, but it was hard, it is still hard. I first had to evaluate why it was hard for me. A few things were revealed. Initiating is an act of romance.

Stop Doing This When You Get Angry

I use to believe that anger was something that happened to me. When I felt angry, I felt like I was a victim of anger, as if it controlled me, and I just had to let it run its course until it sputtered out. I feel like comparing it to a cold virus. It comes on strong and I just have to wait until it passes. This type of thinking is wrong. If you do this when you get angry…if you believe anger controls you and that it has to run its course…you need to stop thinking this way. You may be thinking now: How do I stop being angry? My husband did this… My child keeps doing this… My mom said this… My sister

I Can Sit Here Forever

How often do you picture sitting by your spouse, peacefully growing old together?  Some relationships can’t see past the fight that broke out two days before. Carrying the weight of pride, stubbornness, anger, resentment and jealousy hinders the awesome power that marriage holds. Sin severs intimacy. A husband and wife have a beautiful opportunity to grow closer with time. This is unique and no other relationship is like it. However, a husband and wife will not grow closer together by happenstance. Sure a husband and wife can stay true to their vows and faithful in marriage and sure they may sit closer to one another in their older age, but I am not referring to a close proximity. What I mean is growing closer together through
