Kindness is such an interesting Fruit of the Spirit because we can give it to everyone else, but find it difficult to consistently give to our spouse. It is the easiest and most basic of them all. Being kind simply means consider your spouse, his/her feelings as well as their needs. Once we are aware of those things, it becomes easier to avoid those behaviors that don’t honor them.
I have been married for 21 years. My husband had two affairs early in our marriage that resulted in 2 love children by different women. I decided to stay for our 3 children. My husband has to pay support for these children and I had a lot of anger about having to struggle. Out of sight out of mind is how I have dealt with this for years. Now our relationship has changed. It seems we are... View details ⇨
"You don’t get to choose what you help with or if you help at all. You were created to help. Period." I heard those words just as clear as day, not from a friend or counselor, but from God. My husband and I were dealing with an issue, and honestly I felt like saying “Look, that’s not my problem. It really has nothing to do with me.” That was my frustration speaking and not my faith.

Let love be evident in how you speak to your spouse. It should be felt with every touch and in every behavior. It’s more than a word, it’s an action. So even if you rarely say “I love you,” your spouse should experience it in how you make them feel. Check this out...
Now that I have a daughter, I can see myself questioning her male friends when they come to the house to date her. When I was a teenager, I didn’t like it when my dad and brothers did it, and I am sure my daughter will be embarrassed when her father and I subject her dates to similar scrutiny. But 20 questions shouldn’t end once she matures into adulthood and can date whomever she chooses. As... View details ⇨

The road gets hard, and things don’t always go our way. Our marriage may be under attack by the enemy, but we have the tools to fight back. If we stay diligent, we can make it through even the most treacherous of storms, with our spouse right by our side.
When I would call myself being mad, I would be silent and keep my feelings to myself. I had to learn that was not the behavior of a grown woman. I made a decision that if something bothers me, I will speak up. There is nothing cute about acting childish, however, maturity is oh so sexy! So the next time you’re tempted to act out, remember you are too grown for that.

“What she won’t do another woman will” - -> that's one of those thoughts that we, men, use to justify us seeking a certain type of attention from another woman…instead of working through whatever the real issue is at home. Here are other toxic thoughts we need to stop having....
As African-Americans, whose collective experience in this country has been marked by the systematic destruction of family structure and the elimination of opportunities for socio-economic mobility, it is even more imperative and pressing that we have financial intimacy in our relationships. The fate of our collective economic and familial structures depends on it.
It can happen to any relationship...all of the emotional and physical energy that goes with sustaining a marriage, family, house and career can push all the “friendship” out of a relationship. You can wake up one day to the realization that we exist in the same house, but we are not friends like we used to be. Laughing has become a rarity because everything facing the relationship just seems... View details ⇨
