When I was single, I had a season of isolation where I worked on myself. As a married man, I am bearing the fruit of the time I spent addressing my personal issues. I addressed my issue of low self-esteem, sought wisdom and understanding of my purpose in life, recognized my value and what I had to offer someone else, worked on being able to recognize when I was being “crazy”…lbvs, and really allowed God to show me true myself. During that season, I wanted to grow and mature. Because marriage was always the end goal for me, I dedicated time to healing from past hurtsRead More →

My wife and I have been more married for two and a half years. The other day, one of mom’s friends said, “I love the way you and your wife interact. You guys really get along and it’s clear that you respect each other.” I smiled and agreed with her, noting that I was blessed to have a very patient wife who I highly value and cherish. But it got me to thinking…why isn’t this the norm? Why do we live in generation where broken, dysfunctional relationships are the norm?

I’ve been meaning to share this post since November 22, 2015 (our first year anniversary), but with a new baby, work, ministry, more work and just my desire to fully share these thoughts regarding the first year of marriage, I just finished the blog.  I understand that everyone’s first year of marriage is different, but I thank God that ours was AMAZING, and I give all the honor and glory to Him because it could have been different, BUT GOD! 1. God has to be at the center of your marriage. There is no way around it and you shouldn’t want to have it any other way. PrayingRead More →

Where is the love? 1st Corithians 13:4-8 clearly explains what LOVE is: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails.” Based on my reading of that scripture, it is clear to me that love is an action word.  Love requires you to demonstrate by your actions how you feel.  If you really love something or someone,Read More →

My wife and I decided that we wanted to do a blog about healthy relationships, marriage, family and the importance of living a God-centered life. Now, although we do not proclaim to be “experts” in this area, God has specifically blessed us with wisdom, knowledge, and understanding about relationships that we believe will be a blessing to someone else.  And I, being the husband and head of our household, decided to write the first introductory blog. (I think that’s okay, right babe? #HappyWifeHappyLife) As of today, my wife and I have been married for 9 months and 5 days, and I can honestly say everyday gets sweeter thanRead More →
