8 Truths about Anger that Will Change Your Life

by Harold and Bette Gillogly ANGER – Turn on the news.  Venture into the caustic world of social media.  It’s everywhere!  People are angry…some for very good reasons.  And some for very bad reasons. Anger is a tricky emotion, that’s why the Scriptures say a lot about it.  Take a look at Ephesians 4:26 through 5:2 and […]

What are Friends For?

by Harold and Bette Gillogly I guess this Seeds for Growth article grows out of our intensified sense of need we described in the HI-LYTER.  Perhaps it’s true you never realize the true value of something until you do without it for awhile.  Here in Nashville we have done without close friends for nearly a […]

Becoming Refreshers

“Uh-oh, look who’s coming. Whatever you do, don’t make eye contact.  Quick — say something to me about this flower arrangement.” “Flower arrangement? Oh…uh… What a great flower arrangement! Those florists sure did a bang-up job on it this week.  Don’t you think?” “Yes, indeed.  Why, just look at those colors, the way they’re blended […]

Don’t Mess With God’s Pictures

by Harold and Bette Gillogly Our wedding picture sits on the bookshelf in our living room.  A young, starry eyed couple smiles expectantly from inside an ornate silver frame, displayed for all to see.  That’s our picture, and it is very special to us.  If you tore it or in any way damaged that picture, […]

by Harold & Bette Gillogly Over the years, we have been asked how we met and fell in love.  So we decided we had better write it all down while our minds are still clear enough to remember the details.  It is especially appropriate we write this now, as this Sunday (June 11, 2000) will […]

Love and Respect (Pt. 2 of 2)

Are you glued? Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh. (Genesis 2:24 KJV)  We quoted the King James Version here because it uses the word “cleave.”  Great word – “cleave.”  It means “to be glued together.”  God’s design is that you, […]

Ministry vs. Manipulation

Ministry is our commitment to love in shoe leather.  When we minister to our mate, we are focusing on them and their needs.  This is not an easy calling.  It’s much easier to focus on our own needs and try to manipulate our partner into meeting them.  But every Christian spouse has been called to […]

Encourager or Critic

We are commanded by the Holy Spirit to encourage one another and build each other up (1 Thess. 5:11). If you know the Lord, then, hopefully, you take this command pretty seriously.  You try your best to encourage those who are DIScouraged.  But is that enough? Is there more to this command than meets the […]
