The Fire is Gone Out.

Question: Dear Sir? I am never sexually satisfied with my wife. I’ve tried all I could to seduce her to have sex. She is either too busy, or there is some physical or emotional problem. We certainly have a serious conflict here. Help! Help!

Answer: Dear sexually-troubled husband: Meeting each other’s sexual needs in a relationship is often a challenge to couples.

Getting Married for the Wrong Reasons

Do we have to get married to be somebody? Do we have to get married to be emotionally fulfilled? Do we have to get married to gain spiritual favor with God?

What I Like About Teenagers

The Butterfly Principle

Do you know why a butterfly would land on your hands when you hold it out? According to my research it is because butterflies are attracted to moisture particles on your hands. Some experts say that if you put water sweetened with sugar on your hands, butterflies will come to drink the water. It is all about the moisture. I would like to use this as an allegory to illustrate how loving relationships work.  If the “butterflies” around you are not landing on your “hands,” it might be due to the lack of “moisture” on your hands.” The “butterflies” represent the people you come in contact with each day.
