Mark 2:1 “A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home.” I was stopped in my tracks as I read this verse today. The Savior of the world had come home. I know theologically that Jesus led a life just like ours and that he lived to give us an example of how men who truly know God live. Seeing it lived out in such an ordinary way, however, was stunning to me.
Call me old fashioned, but I still love magazines. They are handy to take on airplanes, to the beach, and to the soccer sidelines. I love to leave ones I have read for the next harried mom who might be sitting in a waiting room, for that parent â€“teacher conference, or on the bleachers. Bill and I write for several magazines and I wanted to let you know about a few of them:
Thriving Family from Focus on the Family– Billâ€™s wisdom on the delicate art of talking to your wife about a touchy subject is in the January/February issue. â€œItâ€™s How You Say Itâ€ will rescue many a husband from the doghouse. Focus on the Family made the recent decision to offer Thriving Family free (a donation is always nice) You might need to call Focus on the Family if you want the current issue: 800-A-FAMILY.

Seven: Bill is one of the keynote speakers for Promise Keepers Canada. Thousands of men across Canada are equipped and encourage by PK Canada, and their magazine Â is a flagship resource for men (of any country!)

Lastly, several times a year I write a Ministry Minded Marriage column for Just Between Us magazine. This magazine was launched by Jill Briscoe. Shelly Esser is current editor and they have created a periodical aimed at women in ministry (Directors of Womenâ€™s Ministry, Pastorâ€™s Wives, Missionaries, Parachurch women, etc). A sample of a Just Between Us Ministry Minded Marriage article is â€œHis and Hers Financesâ€ on our www. Love-Wise.com articles page. Or read Encourage Him an article by me on the online version of Just Between Us website (The electronic version online is just a sample of the magazine, the print version offers more).Order Just Between Us.
Pick up a magazine and curl up in a cozy chair by the fire or on a blanket in the warm sunshine and take a well deserved break. Those few moments might just change your life!
