Humans have been practicing dating on a large scale for around, oh, 50 to 75 years or so. Before that, no one dated. Oh, some snuck around, but that wasn’t dating, either. The very idea of two unmarried people of the opposite gender spending any time together, alone, was unthinkable, once upon a time. Why? … Continue reading About Dating
It's a Truth. He made man, male and female. Along with much of the rest of creation, he caused us to be attracted to each other through hormones. True, again. So tell me, why did He load us up with tons of desire and then forbid our using it? Good question. And the answer … Continue reading Overheard: God Created Hormones
Hers was a brave act, these days, foregoing 6-digit employment to cook and clean for a handful of people.
My man is so good at things I'm not good at. He can handle stress like an iron man, while I panic and flop around like a beached fish. He knows what to do when political things invade our lives, and I just want to shout. He has a GPS inside his brain; but I … Continue reading Adam or Eve: Who’s Better in a Crisis?
Dearest Angela, Has my last letter soaked in, yet? Let me tell you what I’ve learned about the tough times: One of the best tickets out of hard circumstances is contentment.

Dearest Angela, So, what do we make of it? Jesus forgave when He was crucified. So did Stephen, when he was stoned. So did Corrie ten Boom regarding the murder of her sister. In each case, if you study it, you will see the act of forgiveness connected to the imparting of Spiritual life and … Continue reading CONCESSIONS – Sent on Saturday Letter #3, part 2
Dearest Angela, I just love your questions! Let’s see—do we women have to make all the concessions? Oh, no, not at all! Please understand that I’m writing to you only what you, Angela, can do. You can’t do one thing about the things God requires of Dan. You must understand that I am not writing … Continue reading CONCESSIONS – Sent on Saturday Letter #3, part 1
Dearest Angela, Do you want to know what is easy? It is so easy, as a wife watching her husband, to want to change the channel. Some women, in reference to "husband watching" are real channel surfers. It's not funny, though. And some of us are just as tempted to hit the "escape" button, aren't we. … Continue reading Sent on Saturday – Letter #2, part 3
