Why Does My Husband Intentionally Annoy Me?

Men need attention. They need to feel appreciated, loved and most importantly respected. Don’t get me wrong women need that too but it’s different for men. When they don’t get what they need they aren’t always good at expressing themselves in a productive way. I’ve learned over many difficult years that if my husband is not being nice, one of his needs are not being met. This week I got the opportunity to watch this play out as I saw my husband interact with our teenage daughter.  As you know, teenagers can be difficult at times. My daughter is 14 […]

How To Train Your Brain To Meditate

How to meditate I find the days I meditate and get my inner world in harmony, my outer world is harmonious. This was a major factor for me in saving my marriage. Once I learned to control my thoughts, it changed my world. So the goal of meditation for me is not to sit and have no thought at all, though that is a part of it. The bigger picture though is to be able to control my thoughts. To be able to stop the thoughts of worry and fear before they take hold of my heart. When I learned […]

Marriage shouldn’t be this hard.   Couples think if marriage is  hard and a lot of work that something is wrong. Unfortunately that’s just marriage, it is hard and it is a lot of work.  When we first get married it seems easy, we are in love and usually very attentive to our spouses.

Make 2012 Your Year of Faith For a Better Marriage

  I’ve been on a bible reading plan to read the entire bible in a year. I’m on day 65 and so far so good. I’ve never read the entire bible and honestly I wasn’t very excited about it.  I didn’t think I’d understand a lot of it and most of the Old Testament just didn’t interest me. But God has a way of leading me right where I need to be when I need to be there. As I was reading the story of Moses, I couldn’t understand why the people kept questioning God and having no faith. He […]

I do all the time. “Why am I the only one doing all the chores?” “Why don’t my kids listen when I tell them to do something?””Why do I have to tell my husband something 5 times?” “Why do I do all the work at Christmas and then get questioned about it?”  The list could go on and on…… I’ve realized when I start asking why questions, I have a problem. The problem is not everyone else but the problem is all me. I’ve found that when I’m asking why, I’m doing nothing […]

How to Stay Happy With a Miserable Husband

  Living with an unhappy spouse is miserable.  It is very hard be happy when they are constantly bringing you down. There are things you can do however. You certainly can’t change them, but you can change your response to them. I love this well written article by Gina Parris Question: My husband is just a miserable person. He sits around moaning about his headaches, and being angry at everybody. The kids and I walk on eggshells around him so as to not upset him more. I know I should feel sorry for him, but I’m just tired of being […]
