Two Ways We View Gender Roles

As a Christian who’s married, I see the extreme importance of gender roles and understanding them. Obviously I come at this issue from a Christian perspective, myself being a complimentarian. So what is a complimentarian? In my marriage it means that my wife and i have distinct roles we play that are equal but different…

How Worldview Effects Marriage

Another School post! Worldview effects marriage in a huge way. The way you view marriage will ultimately affect your marriage for better or worse. Most of us have a combination of good views and bad ones. As someone who’s a Christians, I see marriage through a biblical lens. I view Biblical marriage as between one…

Married For a Year!

Of course I mean married for a year and counting, not married for a year and done. Definitely in it for life! Pictured above is my wife and I under the tree where we got engaged, I made a scavenger hunt that led to under that tree where the ring! But that feels like forever…

The Beach and The Burn

There were many memories of laughter on our honeymoon, one of them was our trip to the beach. I find it quite fascinating being able to see the curve of the earth and feel the water that may have been halfway around the world some time ago. I thought of what may have swam in…

The Honeymoon

Life is finally here! Perfect bliss! Well… Sort of. Life? Well, its always been here, now its just shifted up a gear, a gear that involves so much more than just passionate “feely” love. Perfect bliss? Well, bliss? Sure! But perfect?… Nope. Life begins as a baby and we’re born as sinners. Life is an…

Home.

As our week-long honeymoon comes to a close my wife and I find ourselves adjusting to “real” life. Everything from making coffee to scheduling our weeks together has been an adventure in and of itself! I personally love it. Laughing as we crack (lame) jokes before bed to stressful shopping where we learn to show…

Choosing Love

“You must be crazy!” “Have you changed your mind yet?” These are all phrases I come across on a fairly regular basis. And no, I haven’t changed my mind. But the crazy part? Well… Let me start in Genesis. God made marriage, sexuality (in marriage), and companionship and called it all what? “Good”. So this…

An Update On My Life

So. 25 more days until marriage. Kinda crazy, right? After many a week going through pre-marital counseling, listening to sermons, and reading books, I can confidently say that even I think I know something about marriage, but from what I’ve heard you can’t really know much (practically speaking) until you get there. But that’s alright…

“Where’d You Hear That…?”  “Counseling”

You might recognize that quote from the popular (and rather good) movie “Fireproof”. As I wear my BCT (NANC) conference name-tag that movie quote popped into my head. I was reminded of the value of counseling and how critical it is. Though my Fiance’ and I are doing pre-marital counseling, I can see how everyone…

“Married Young”?

It’s Tuesday, March 18th. I woke up this morning at 7am, ready for the day. Though a little tired I got out of bed immediately, finding that getting dressed and making your bed the moment your alarm goes off is a far superior way to wake up rather than snoozing every 9 minutes. Speaking of…

Some Realizations On Dating

Yep! Had to have one of these posts, what Christian blogger couldn’t? After all gotta get those follower numbers up… Just kidding, but while we’re on the topic I’ve hit 40 followers! I appreciate that immensely and I’ll be making the best content as I can these upcoming months tackling real-life Theology stuff and real-tough…
