Why Fight When Things Are Good?

 
If you are like most people, you're probably thinking... "Why would I fight for my marriage when things are going great?" In one sense, the word "fighting" doesn't sound like a great word to be used in conjunction with the word "marriage." On the other hand, it depends on your definition of the "fighting."

5 Ways You Can Master The Art Of Slowing Down And Enjoying Life

There's a slowing down problem in today's society.
 
I hear the same words repeated time and time again:
  • Exhausted
  • Overworked
  • Overwhelmed
  • Over-scheduled
  • Anxious

It's clearly a global issue.

If you get to the heart of these issues, you will see that the issue is really just a TIME issue.
  • If you are feeling exhausted, it might be because you haven’t allowed yourself enough time to rest. 
  • If you are feeling anxious, it might be because you want something to change and happen that is outside of your control.

"We don't have all the answers. We are not perfect, our marriage is not perfect and our family is not perfect. We still argue and we still want to strangle our kids at times (only kidding), but we simply want to share what we've learned. We want to share things we are trying… or know we should be trying.
 
Studies show that as the average couple gets older (and their kids grow older), the satisfaction level of the marriage gets lower and lower. The only time this changes significantly is when the children leave home.  At that point, the satisfaction of marriage will rise somewhat but still remain lower than when the marriage first began.
 
We wanted to break each of those down and talk about cultivating each of those in our lives, in our relationship and in our marriage.
 

1. Cultivating Commitment

 
This is the bedrock and...

1: Rethink your priorities

At the beginning of 2017, I went on The Millennial Leadership Show, and made a promise to my listeners that I would read one book per week for a whole year. That's a whopping total of 52 books! As soon as the show ended, I cringed.
