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.

What Does A Prize Worthy Vineyard Have To Do With Your Marriage?

This is a guest article by Michelle Lozano. Her way of communicating how wine is relatable to marriage is captivating. I hope you enjoy her words as much as I do. Michelle writes: I watched a video recently about the wines of Oregon and how specific regions recently yielded some of the best wines in the state’s history. Certain perfect combinations of drainage in the hills, rock layers of the earth beneath the vineyards, the weather cycles, the rain cycles, and fermenting processes have created immense complexity and depth of what defines a great wine. Reading of all these things taught me just how artistically beautiful a glass of wine can be and how most people overlook the ocean of time and history corked within a bottle of Pinot

The Day My Marriage Ended

This is a guest article by a wife named Megan. She is openly sharing her marriage story in hopes of encouraging other wives. Megan writes: My first marriage ended on a Tuesday afternoon as we battled over finances on the front porch. Fine—you want to leave. Just go!”…he shouted, pointing to my car which was already running in the driveway. This was not a command on his part but a reaction to a note he found sitting on the kitchen counter. I was sneaking out of my house with our four month old baby in tow.  It was a coward’s way out of a relationship that became harder than I was prepared for.  We argued more than we talked; we griped more than we laughed; and

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.
