‘I screwed up, no one will love me.’ ‘I don’t have enough time in the day to get everything done.’ ‘I don’t deserve to be happy.’ I can remember thinking these thoughts as a child and even now as an adult. I try to tell myself they aren’t true and that my best is good enough, but I don’t always believe it.

How can I with all the things I’ve forgotten and mistakes I’ve made my whole life? The feeling of...

Growing up I was shy and reserved. Actually, unless I really know you, I’m still shy and reserved. As a child, I thought I was strange and felt as though I didn’t fit in anywhere. Not sure where my thinking came from, but it’s how I felt. Therefore, I believed I wasn’t as ‘cool’ as the other kids and didn’t try to engage in a lot of conversations or friendships in fear of being rejected. If we fast for...

I had an interesting conversation today about progress versus perfection.  This is a concept that gets discussed often in my office and I would like to expound on it; also I found the following, awesome, quote by Voltaire. 

When we think of progress, what comes to mind?  I think of steady advancement toward a goal.  Whether that goal is a mental health accomplishment, a wood working proje...

At its most basic, premarital counseling or education is a chance to sit down with a trained professional to discuss life after the wedding day.  Most of the premarital couples I have worked with have numerous questions about roles, responsibilities, sex, money, work, kids, extended family, video games, social media, conflict, fighting fair…and the list could go on.  It is important to note that these...

Previously, I presented Proverbs 5 as God’s design for husbands to make sense of sexual temptation in marriage, and to further discover effective antidotes to prevent empowering the sexual temptation experience.  God’s design is to empower a man’s experience of his wife, thereby disempowering the experience of sexual temptation.  A husband needs to choose to rejoice in, be satisfied by, and be captivat...

Previously, I presented Proverbs 5 as God’s design for husbands to make sense of sexual temptation in marriage, and to further discover an effective antidote to the experience.  The first design antidote is to choose to rejoice in your wife.  The second design antidote is to choose to experience physical, sensual, and sexual satisfaction exclusively with your her.  The third is to choose to be captivat...

Previously, I presented Proverbs 5 as God’s design for husbands to make sense of sexual temptation in marriage, and to further discover an effective antidote to the experience.  The first design antidote is to choose to rejoice in your wife.  Proverbs 5: states ‘may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.’

Rejoicing is not a common term for most of us in today’s culture.  What does this really mean...

God’s word tells us to not covet our neighbor’s wife.  But the world we live in presents sexual temptation every day.  When the book of Hebrews says that Jesus himself was tempted in every way, but was without sin, does that mean that he experienced sexual temptation?  If so, what’s the difference between coveting (sin) and the sexual temptation of Jesus?  How can I make sense out of the commandment, m...

Your sense of self.

What is it?  Who is it? How do you know?  What is it based on? Is it simply a list of all the roles and attributes that you have?

If that is the case then I am a husband, driver, father, sighted-person, son, homed person, brother, right-handed person, friend, smeller of delicious scents, veteran, and therapist.  

Some of these may seem silly, but consider the loss of one or more o...
