THE BOOK YOU'VE BEEN WAITING FOR IS COMING SOON!

A few days ago we got our author proof of Intentional Courtship. We will be making some minor changes and then announcing the official release date. This book was our COVID-19 project, but it was more than that. I started writing it several years ago, before Cathy and I even met. When I pulled it […]

LILY Letter 16: Risks Worth Taking

You cannot find love without risk. This is a fundamental law of nature. Ultimately, the games we play in dating are all attempts to violate this law. You might ask your friend to talk to the person and see if they can tease out a revelation about that person’s feelings for you, without telling the […]

THE DEVIL

My mother talks about the devil more than anyone I know. Maybe that's a generational thing. I'm not sure. She has told me during the hardships of two divorces and hitting roadblocks in my career, "The devil is camping on your trail!" I think it's always a good idea to be aware that there is […]

LILY Letter 15: The Power of Intention

Children of God, made in His image are given the power, “to act for themselves and not to be acted upon[.]” (2 Nephi 2:26.) Yet how often do married people resort to blaming each other for their misery and even for their own angry outbursts? We can be acted upon by our own emotions and […]

SOMETHING STUPID?

Verse 2 of Frank Sinatra's famous song, "Something Stupid," goes like this: "I practice every day to find some clever lines to say to make the meaning come true But then I think I'll wait until the evening gets late, and I'm alone with you The time is right, your perfume fills my head, the […]

BECOMING ONE IN CHRIST JESUS

I love the symbolism of this stained glass window. It shows Yeshua the Christ holding the hands of a married couple. Notice that the star of David is between them. The star is composed of two triangles. The upside down triangle represents the infinite power of God, loving each person individually. The right side up […]
