How to Protect Wood Tables

I’m sharing this easy tip you can use to protect you wood tables when they get lots of wear and tear with an active family.

How to Lose in Marriage


Losing in marriage isn’t really talked about very often. No one wants to lose the argument or put others first. This is something that I have to make a choice to follow through daily. We are currently going through a series at Journey Christian church  by Andy Stanley called “Staying in Love.” The general premise is that “falling” in love is easy, staying in love is much harder.
