  • The Knight in Blue Jeans

    My phone alerted me to a text. I paused to read it and shook my head. It was from my husband, his latest response to a series of messages between us. I tapped the reply square. “You’re such a man.” And I didn’t mean that in a “you’re the hunk of my dreams and I […]

  • Marriage Part V: Loser Cleans the Toilet

    All marriages require decisions be made. Some are huge, others not so huge. And the rest? Well, I won’t label them. Let’s just say the stakes are low, the potential to bicker about them high. For example: “I will paint a yellow stripe down my face before I let you paint our ceilings yellow.” “Why […]

  • Marriage Part IV: The Christian Husband

    Not being a man, I didn’t see fit to write on this topic myself because–despite what today’s popular culture would have one believe–men and women are just not the same.

  • Rich, Famous, Poor…And More

    Do you remember the game RFP-MASH? It consisted of a rectangle with three lines drawn to the left (with the names of three love interests on them), three lines drawn to the right (with the names of three dream cars), RFP – MASH written across the top (standing for rich, famous, poor – mansion, apartment, shack, […]

  • A Marriage Worth Saving

    My husband and I recently celebrated our tenth year of marriage. My surprise at how fast that milestone has come is surpassed only by how many of our friends’ marriages have collapsed along the way. Couples who were as vibrant and playful with each other as we are, whose faces and smiles grace the pages of our […]
