10 Things Happy Couples Do Differently

2 Corinthians 6:14-18ESV 
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, “I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you, and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty.”The worst nightmare imaginable is for a real believer to be yoked to a pretender! They may or may not go to church, but three things you can count on:

Ask yourself the following questions:
1.) Does what I want to do or be glorify God or me? 2.) What are your subjects of interest? 3.) Does the success you want set the right example for those of your household? 4.) What do you want your legacy to be-how will it h…

Leaving Your Abusive Spouse Can Save Your Life!

No this isn't GODLY PERMISSION to leave your spouse because you have some marital issues. ABUSE IS NOT AN ISSUE, IT IS A CRIME!
Not too long ago I read a story about a woman finally freed from an abusive situation whose denomination forbade a wife to leave her physically or emotionally abusive husband. Her name was Diana and maybe one day I will get a chance to interview her on a blog. She had been in an abusive marriage for 25 years. As a teen she had chosen an abusive boyfriend who dominated her all through high school. He was killed in Vietnam, freeing her from that monster! Even long-distance he had controlled her every movement. His brother attempted to take over the relationship, but Diana was having none of it. She married a loving man and the marriage lasted for three years. He was killed by a drunk driver one night. Devastated, she had decided marriage wasn't for her. After moving to California she somehow fell in with a cult group called the Children of God (http://ww…
