What is marriage for? 22/1/2012|
After the service on the third Sunday of each month some
of the guys play basketball in the gym. Simultaneously,
the Jr. High kids play some games and have a Bible study.
After everything had wrapped up, I was casually talking
with my friend Rob off to the side of where the youth were
when one of the girls called over to us and asked "Hey,
how many girlfriends have you ever had?" Not even

Building good friendships 10/10/2011|
The Lord Jesus when He was on the Earth was all about building
good relationships. He was celibate and perfect in every
way and yet He had a real love for men and women. He still does.
He isnt dead, He is alive in heaven, seated on His throne
actively ruling with His Heavenly Father and with the Holy
Spirit, but when He was on earth, He demonstrated His Perfect
love for us, a love which casts ...

How I Met My Soul Mate (Part 2) 15/2/2010|
Long before the advent of sites like Big Church, there was a very popular little website
called Classifieds 2000. It was more like the classified
ad section of a local newspaper than a dating site, but it
served its purpose for the time that it reigned supreme.
I was a junior web designer, professional writer and accomplished
graphic artist back in those days. It was during the time

How I Met My Soul Mate! 23/1/2010|
The “cheating gene” is not only inherent in the male species,
although they do get the bulk of the recognition for their
participation in this notorious, world-wide sport.
My ex-wife was a gold-medalist in the cheating game! She
artfully maintained two kitchens, four bathrooms and
two master bedrooms, with the ease of a child turning summersaults.
Do I hate her for renowned ...

Soulmates= True Love? 7/3/2008|
How I feel about the whole soulmate thing can at times come
and go for me like the seasons. I think when you have a true
and deep feeling of connection with anyone be it male as
in a dating relationship or a female who is a good close friend,
you can be or classify that at as a good soul connection.
To me it's like the birds of a feather, kindred spirit,

The Passed is what makes us TODAY 28/5/2007|
Many times people will tell another.. oh that's in

A day without clouds It was a day without clouds; where the wind blew with warmth

and the sand was warm. And my lover, my friend was walking
right here next to me. We were on that long beach , that vacant
place where the voices of strangers were not ...

A good relationship is worth taking your time. 30/1/2007|
I like to take my time, when building a relationship. It
seems that building
relationships are different, in various cultures, which
can make it, doing it correctly, even more complex.
Building a relationship is a two way street.
If both parties are interested,
they can work together to overcome differences and build
a good relationship.

"What Is Love?" 11/11/2006|
It is amazing that in my counseling practice when I am working
with couples and they are at each other's throats hurling
angry words at each other, I will interrupt them and ask
them in a quizzical voice, "Why are you two still together?"
Sometimes they will say they are still together "for
the kids", "for financial reasons",
"afraid of what family and friends will think and
say", etc. But ...

Warm Fuzzies & Cold Pricklies 10/11/2006|
Beginning with the first counseling session, it is imperative
that I, the therapist, am able to successfully begin to
change the couple’s direction of focus from one which is
problem and blame oriented to one that is solution and growth
oriented. By the time a couple usually comes to the first
session, both are feeling hurt, empty, angry, frustrated,
numb… and a bunch of ...

Sustaining a relationship and romance 19/8/2006|
I think that romantic love can be a wonderful feeling but
can be upsetting if it all goes wrong. Maybe God created
romantic love (which of course is different to the love
we have for our parents and brothers and sisters) to help
a family stay together. Once you have found a loving relationship
with a good person I think its important to work at it for
it to be a success. You can't only ...

Would you get involved with a 100% disabled person on a fixed

90% or more of the expenses, will fall on your shoulders
alone for the rest of the marriage, 30 or more years.

Why "Agape" is so important for Human Relationships 26/2/2006|
Our God is not only a loving God - no, he IS love! We all know
that from the Bible. But many people dont fully understand
what that really means.
As human beings in descendence of Adam, we simply dont love
God. We are not connected with God, we dont know God and therefore
we dont know true love - or better Agape, the godly love.
True love doesnt know differences in age or race, not even ...

Why Eve had to be made from Adam's rib 30/12/2005|
I once heard this curious Jewish saying which made quaint
(if not real) sense. Forgive me if some of you know the original
words - it's called artistic license
God did not make Eve from Adam's skull bone lest she
grew too proud of herself;
God did not make Eve from a bone in Adam's foot lest Adam
trampled over her;
God chose to make Eve from one of Adam's ...

"I DELIGHT to do your will..." 28/8/2005|
Maybe this is just coming from my personal observation:
There seems to be a lack of "covenant keepers"(*)
and "lack of commitment" in married couples
in the past 30 years. Perhaps, we have tried to put a new spin
how we view marriage commitment and relegated to a lesser
degree and thereby provided a license to take the easy way
out, rather than "honoring commitments and vows."
