Men and Women’s Real Love Needs

by Harold and Bette Gillogly This month we celebrated our 30th wedding anniversary (June 11)!  Yes, we’re getting older.  But who says old dogs can’t learn new tricks?  We’re still learning.  And as long as we are open to what God wants to do in our lives, He will keep on teaching us new ways […]

Two Becoming One

Kick ’em Out of the Bedroom

No, we’re not talking about kicking your spouse out.  We’re talking about kicking out a couple of habits you may have developed in your marriage relationship.  If you are going to experience joy in your sexual relationship, these two habits have gotta go! Demanding Has Gotta Go: 1 Corinthians 7:3-5 is an often misunderstood Scripture.  […]
