Wives, Your Husband IS Talking to You

In marriage, there is a complaint that is almost universal among wives…their husbands don’t talk to them.

Yet, when I pull the husbands aside, they tell me they talk all of the time, but their wives don’t listen to them.

How Do You Know When Love is Real

Love is one of those overused words in our culture that has become so mangled by misuse we aren’t sure what it means anymore. What does it mean when you say you love someone?
