In Trouble with God

In Joshua chapter 7 we read about Achan’s sin. In short, Achan, an Israelite, broke a direct command of God by taking some of the “devoted things” from Jericho.

After the ceremony is over, it never fails that there are one or two people who want to comment about the “husband challenge.” Sometimes it’s a wife who says, “I wish my husband could have been here to hear that.” Sometimes it’s a husband standing with his wife...

The 6 Myths of Romance

Bigfoot. The Loch Ness Monster. The Hover Board from the 1989 classic Back to the Future 2.  All myths. All cool ideas (especially the hover board) but nothing to validate the claims to their existence. Similarly, I’ve run across a few myths regarding love, marriage and romance. These myths continually resurface like pictures of Bigfoot on the internet, as men and women make their way down the path of romance. Here are a few I’ve identified, I hope this helps bring...
