Don’t Lose Your Focus!

Learning accept God's grace and forgiveness.

This is a sample from my new book, Grace: What’s So Amazing About It?

How Do You Keep Your Marriage Hot?

5 Secrets that will create a Successful Marriage.

This post is dedicated to my wife, Kari. I love you and am excited to be celebrating 4 years of marriage to you–my best friend. Happy Anniversary – on June 9th – Thank you for making me the happiest man on earth.

If you’re married, remember the moment you either walked down the aisle, or like me, waited at the altar for your Bride? It’s an exhilarating feeling knowing your life is about to be forever changed. The music and fanfare, but all you care about is the person on the other side of the aisle. But what happens after it all wears off and life settles in.

This Thursday will be four years since Kari and I tied the knot. The weeks of planning and waiting, the day finally arrived. Yet, when I think back to simpler days, where I only had myself to worry about, it sounds like a good idea.

He grabs a ring from his hand and taps your ring, “It’s solid.” He proclaims. He taps it again and with a metallic clink the ring he’s holding magically passes through the solid metal ring you’re holding. You are now linked with the magician and to prove it he asks you to pull  your ring to make sure they truly are linked together.
