10 Things to Tell Your Wife Everyday

A note from Alex: On Sunday, June 22, my wife and I will celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. While Mary Beth and I don’t have a perfect marriage, we have an honest, loving marriage that is built on trust and communication.

To honor this milestone, I’m writing a two-part post. Today’s post is for written husbands. Thursday’s post will be for wives, and each post provides the same amazing lesson my marriage has taught me: Open and sincere communication is a must-have for lasting love.

If you’re like many, then you can appreciate the value in an inspirational quote. When times get tough, it’s important to keep your thoughts “positive” to avoid spiraling downward into a dark pit of despair.

private worship

“Worship is a way of seeing the world in the light of God.” – Abraham Joshua Heschel

Sometimes a busy work schedule or increased responsibilities can interfere with traditional worship times. Of course, this doesn’t mean that you can’t participate in worship. You just need to be a little more creative in working worship time into your life, but it can be done.

Here are five ways you can use to make sure worship remains an integral part of your life when life’s demands get in the way:

1. Attend an Online Worship Service
There are several churches that make services available online for people who can’t attend church for one reason or another. Additionally, some major churches have made the move to all-online services at multiple locations. Where there’s a will, there’s a way. An online service with chat rooms and forums can offer the same type of fellowship that traditional church attendance offers for members. Continue Reading This Post »
