3 Things Every Wife Wants To Tell Her Husband

What She Needs From Her Man

by Andrea Isaacs

My husband recently wrote, 3 Things Every Husband Wishes He Could Say To His Wife, and the response was so overwhelming I felt I needed to chime in. You can read his article by clicking here.

My favorite thing about his article is all the passionate conversations it started between spouses. It gave husbands a chance to verbalize some things they may have wanted to say, but I’ve heard from the ladies, “Hey! What about what we want

The things he's afraid to say

There’s an old joke about the difference between men and women…

A woman visited a store in New York City that offers free husbands. At the entrance, there are instructions posted that say:

“You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are 6 floors to choose from. You may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you CANNOT go back down except to exit the building!

5 Reasons We Choose To Homeschool

Why Homeschooling Works For Our Family

by April Heitzman

I’ll admit that I never imagined I would homeschool, or be a stay home mom for that matter.

I loved my job and my independence. My journey to homeschool began when my oldest turned 3. My husband and I checked out our local public school and a local private school. We knew that the private school would be a far stretch for financial reasons and was moving forward to register our son at the local public school when a friend …

5 Reasons Why We Don’t Homeschool Our Kids

Why public school is better for our family

by Jason Isaacs

Homeschooling has been around forever, and maybe it’s just because of my season of life, but it feels like it’s popularity is at an all-time high.

Having a growing number of friends who homeschool has given me a chance to become more familiar with the realities of homeschooling and debunk the common misconceptions associated with it.

Andrea and I decided during our first pregnancy that we would not homeschool or send our kids to private school. For our family homeschooling

How God Saved My Marriage After Filing for Divorce

A Marriage Miracle

by Jennifer Norwood

I grew up in a traditional two-parent home in East Texas. My dad is a pastor, and even though I committed my life to Christ at the age of seven, I learned that in the church world keeping up appearances is important.

I remember my dad being gone a lot, counseling, and pastoring people. He was doing a good thing, helping people, but it affected my self-esteem. As a teenager, I dated guys because they showed interest in me, not …

The 2 Letter Word That Is Killing Your Marriage

How to fight less with your spouse

by Jason Isaacs

Tell me if you’ve ever experienced this before in your marriage.

You’re mad at your spouse for something they did or said. You’re not angry, just upset, and a simple apology would probably make the whole thing go away. So when it comes up in the next conversation you are fully prepared to accept an apology and move on, except your spouse does the only thing worse than not apologizing, they say “I’m sorry IF…”

Let me give you …

A New Year, A New Try

My frustration with diet failure!

by Jamie Franklin

My youngest kids are four-year-old twins. I have lost the “baby weight” from their pregnancy about three times!

Each time I lose the weight and will stay that size for a couple of months, and then I fall off the wagon. I get tired of counting calories, tired of workouts, and I gain the weight back plus some more! It’s so frustrating. It’s so deflating. I have tried different workouts, different diets all to keep my attention. I want to …

You’re Right, Winning the Powerball Jackpot Wouldn’t Change You

The myth of generosity

by Jason Isaacs

You’ve probably heard the Powerball jackpot is up to $1.3 billion, the largest prize in history.

If you’re anything like me, even though the odds of winning are 292 million to 1, you’ve allowed yourself to dream about how you would spend the money. Most of us have the same ideas; we would all pay off debt, buy a new house, and put enough money away to live off the interest, but how much would we give away?

Anytime the …

The Day I Realized I Had A “Dad Bod”

My love/hate relationship with exercise

by Jason Isaacs

Back in 2011 I stepped on the scale in my bathroom and saw the number 215. I was 28 years old, 5’9 and already 215 pounds. I was destined for 300 pounds; it was only a matter of time. I officially had a “Dad Bod.”

Up until that point in my life I never exercised, but I was very active in sports. Although I had slowly been gaining a few pounds each year, I never had to worry about my …

Finding Time to Exercise When You’re The Mother of 4 Small Kids

The struggle is real

by Kristin Mooney

Just like anything we do in life, exercise takes intentionality.  

As a busy mom of four young children, I rarely have an extra 30 minutes in the middle of my afternoon or evening to exercise, I have to make time to exercise. Don’t mistake my words, exercising is not my top priority, it’s far from the top, but honestly, if I’m not intentional, it doesn’t happen at all.

I am a rule follower, so when I set a plan I
