Updates from our family life ministry


Love……thinks no evil. (1 Corinthians 13 v 4-5) It’s a bit of advice most married couples have been told at some point; when there’s a disagreement, stay focused on the matter at hand. Here’s an example of what not to do. Her: Of course, I’m upset! You said you’d be home by 6pm. I have dinner […]

Love’s long fuse

Love…..is not provoked (I Corinthians 13 v 4-5) Short fuse and godly love are like oil and water, they just don’t miss! Think about Jesus’ life and how patient He was with clueless disciples and hypocritical priest. Remember how He welcomed children (Matthew 19 v 14), tax collectors (Mark 2 v 15), and even prostitutes […]

A Golden Rule Opportunity

Love does not behave rudely. (1 Corinthians 13 vs 4-5) Home is where we let out hair down. We relax and unwind; we freely share our opinions and vent out frustrations. Home is where he doesn’t have to shave, and she doesn’t have to put on mascara. It’s where we can transparently be ourselves. And […]

Love does not brag

Love does not parade itself, it’s not puffed up (1 Corinthians 13 v 4) Maybe it’s because of the big promotion we got at work…. Or perhaps we lost six pounds…. Or maybe even because, unlike our spouse, we got up early three straight days and spent time with the Lord…. Whatever the accomplishment, there’s […]

Love does not brag

Maybe it’s because of the big promotion we got at work……or perhaps we lost six pounds…or maybe even because, unlike our spouse, we got up early three straight days and spent time with the Lord. Whatever the accomplishment, there is one temptation we all face: bragging. Let’s face it, God knows us more than we […]


Love does not envy. (1 Corinthians 13 v 4) The roots of envy, no pun intended go back to the garden. Eve wanted to be like God, she envied the almighty’s knowledge of good and evil (Genesis 3 v 4-6) so she ate the fruit with Adam and life on this earth hasn’t been the […]


Love is Kind (1 Corinthians 13:4) She washed his car and even vacuumed it…. He emptied the dishwasher without being asked…. That favorite meal was just what he needed after a tough day at work…. That back rub made everything right with the world after a crazy day of cleaning, kids, and everyday chaos of home. Acts of […]


Love suffers long (1 Corinthians 13 v 4) I love that movie! I love their Caesar salad! I love that color on you! I love fry dumplings, or some would say, fry bake! When we use the word “LOVE” and we tend to use it a lot! We are often talking about the good feeling […]

Submission: God’s Way Part 3

Husbands love your wife just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. (Ephesians 5:25) Okay husbands, before it slips off your tongue, before it even crosses your mind, before you even remotely tempted to think for one second, my wife has to submit to me, please read the verse above. Now […]

Submission God’s way (Part 2)

Wives, submit to your husband as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church. (Ephesians 5 v 22) Submit to my husband? No way Jose! That barbaric way of life has been dead since the sixties! That is often the response of countless […]
