Larry's gift



So the other day I shared what Larry got me for our 20th anniversary - a platinum/diamond anniversary ring. And I said he was getting golf stuff from me.


Well for Father's Day the kids and I got him golf shoes. He loved them! And for our anniversary this year, I got him... (drumroll please...)

A set of Callaway golf clubs!

He's in heaven! And that's how every husband like him SHOULD be, right?

After all we've been through together and made it through the past 20 years, I wish I could give him so much more. I have the next 20 years to save up for the next thing. Actually the next five, because I want to do something special at 25. And really, we should celebrate every anniversary in a big way because it's such a significant thing.

Recently I was reading the blog of a pastor who has been married for many years and they had a special anniversary this year and said they didn't even get to celebrate it until weeks later, nor did they even exchange gifts until weeks had past because they were too busy ministering to other people. I was really sad to hear that. And may we never, never, never fall into that. While I love the ministry the fact of the matter is, a lot of people I've ministered to have come and gone. And nobody has ever been to me what this man has. So on our anniversary? I'm all his.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
