I know that a lot of people don’t talk about it, but here I go. I have been struggling with depression for a long time now. Every day is a battle. It doesn’t seem to matter what I do, it is always lurking, just waiting to rear its ugly head.Some days are better than others. Depression can rule your life if you let it. I choose not to let it control me completely....

Ugh, I hear you girl! I thought to myself while I read Brittany’s recent post, “A Good Date Gone Wrong.” I have also experienced the disappointment of thinking that a guy wants to get to know me, only to discover that he was way more interested in getting some action at the end of the night. Like Brittany, Meg, and Isaac, I’m also looking for a lasting relationship...

It’s difficult to pinpoint what makes or breaks a marriage. Even the strongest couples experience hardships that can lead them to seek divorce. Whether burdens are financial or health related, family issues or career related, there is always something that challenges our collective pursuit of happiness. As I reflect on what made our marriage so great, I think it...

Danny the peacemaker By the end of last week, I was stressed, and I was tired. My husband and I had been having lots of tense conversations—the ordinary arguments about dishes and laundry and managing our work schedules—but this week was particularly tense because we were considering buying a house. The contract sat on the kitchen table, and all our conversations...

In my line of work, if I don’t do my job well, someone could lose a life. Like a fireman or a surgeon, I often meet life that I may never see again in my day-to-day. The other week I gave my best to save someone’s life, and it was the first time that I felt I failed because someone did die. And it was on my watch. But, just like a fireman or surgeon, a lot of...

“Run!” a familiar voice shouted from the halls of my apartment building. I turned around; a jolt of adrenaline shot through my eight-year-old body. My mother, clutching my younger sister, ran down the hallway.  Several police officers pursued her. “Run!” she shouted again. I bolted down the streets with the cops in fast pursuit.  The cops tackled my mother...

I don’t claim to know a lot about how to be smart with money, nor do I have a lot of it. But I do know one thing: it plays an important role in your relationship with your woman. Mimi and I have started to take some classes called Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University and it has helped me reflect on the issues centered around money. I’ve learned that money...

My husband’s smile was enchanting. There was something about the sparkle in his bright blue eyes and the way his face lit up when he curled up his lips that will be permanently etched into my brain forever. Dan’s smile warmed even the coldest moments and brightened even the darkest days. It’s hard for me to put into words what made my husband so wonderful. I...

Do you love a pregnant or postpartum woman?  I know it can be difficult.  Motherhood often changes a woman’s hormones from saying, “I want to jump your bones,” into, “Keep that baby alive!”  There have been periods when motherhood has turned my wife into a seemingly asexual creature. She still loves me, but she has absolutely no sex drive. Above...

I have a new roommate, and he’s driving me nuts. From the moment Karl moved in, things have been different. For instance, there has been more clutter around the bathroom sink, which we share, not to mention more beard trimmings. As I was staring at his sprawl recently, the thought came to me: Karl is preparing me for marriage, whether I like it or not. Isaac and...
