Why Not?

Men, think back to your wedding day for a moment. We all said things that day that we’d be held to for the rest of our lives. We made a commitment to our wives. A commitment of love, a commitment to faithfulness, a commitment to unity, and a commitment of “for better or worse”. In […]

The Miscarriage That Changed Our Marriage

“I just don’t feel pregnancy anymore,” I said with what he thought were premature tears trickling down my cheeks. “So much can change in early pregnancy,” he said. “I’m sure you’ll be nauseous again soon.” Soon didn’t happen. “Soon” turned into hours and I still didn’t feel pregnant.
