I’m Not In Love Anymore. Is It Okay To Leave?
Morning friends, I’m in Chicago this week spending some time with my elderly parents. It’s so good to share this journey with them and it’s so hard. It’s never easy seeing those you love struggle and when you think of it, I’d appreciate your prayers for them. Question: I’ve been married for almost 13 years now & have 2…Read More
Do I Have To Have Sex With My Husband?
Hi Friends, Wow, this has been a crazy week. We had an overwhelming response to our invitation for new CONQUER members. It only shows me that there are so many Christian women who are feeling stuck and afraid in destructive and abusive marriages. Second, I’ve been doing Grandma camp for the last two weeks, watching our 3 granddaughters at…Read More
Do I Have To Have A Relationship With My Mother-In-Law?
Morning friends, Thanks so much for your prayers. It was a grueling week and I spoke a lot and now I’m sick with a head cold. I have another week of travel to go. As I gave my keynote address at AACC there was a collective gasp when I said, “Abuse, adultery, and addictions are not marital problems. They cause…Read More

I’m home for the next two weeks and looking forward to getting my paperwork cleaned up. Have you gone paperless? If so, what did you do first? What scanner did you use? Did you have a…Read More
Topic: My Husband is Smoking – The Gift of Acceptance
Good morning friends, We have just survived our first October snowstorm. Much of the area has been without power, many beautiful trees are ruined. Their branches couldn’t carry the load of snow and ice because their leaves hadn’t dropped. It is so sad to see the wreckage. I’ve included two pictures, one from the snow storm on Saturday, one from…Read More
The Idolatry of Marriage and the Comfort of God
Hi Friends, I hope all my East coast friends survived Hurricane Irene. Thankfully, we only had minor water leakage in our basement and lots of leaves everywhere from all the heavy winds. Just a reminder, next Tuesday, my newsletter is going out. I will be talking about Holy Listening. Do you know how to hear God? If you’re not already…Read More
Topic: What do you want said at your funeral?
Evening friends, Last week I was in California visiting with my precious grandbaby. We went to Disney Land to celebrate her first birthday. It was cold, but thankfully didn’t rain (it rained the rest of the week). But over the past two weeks I’ve been pondering something. What do you want said about you at your funeral? Before I left…Read More
