Spiritual Causes of Anxiety and Depression

February 14, 2014 by


As a pharmacist – I am very keenly aware that millions of people are taking prescriptions to help with depression, anxiety, and a wide range of emotional and mental disorders.  These disorders can be very life-altering and make living a productive life difficult.  Sometimes people can be completely paralyzed by these conditions and I am […]

A Husband Answers My Questions about Emotions

April 13, 2013 by


I believe that this husband articulates the feelings of the vast majority of men – Christian and non-Christian.  It is easy for us to assume that our men don’t have feelings because they often don’t verbalize them.  Sometimes, they can be deeply wounded for many years and NEVER verbalize their pain.  That is what my […]

My husband and I debated that question early in our marriage, way before we had children.  It seems to make plenty of sense on paper, right?  If the wife has a greater earning potential, then why not let her work full time and have the husband stay home and take care of the children and […]

“He Asks Me, ‘What’s Wrong?’ – and Then Gets Angry At ME When I Tell Him!!??!”

October 24, 2012 by


Here is a question I received from a wife.  I think this issue is REALLY important.   And I am extremely thankful that this wife is generously allowing me to share because I know that many wives are dealing with this and are frustrated – as are their husbands.  So let’s hash through this together […]
