Miscarriage and the Road to Healing

Last summer was a crazy time in my marriage. I was finishing up a dissertation; my husband was serving as a college minister, as well as suffering from an infection that would not respond to medicine; and we were both trying to be good parents to two toddlers. In the midst of the craziness, we […]

Put another way: Do certain degrees make you less likely to be “marriage material”? That type of question is one I get at least once a month. Seriously. In recent weeks, I’ve been asked three different versions of it: Will getting a PhD mean that no guy will ever want to marry me? If I […]

Is Male Headship a Result of the Fall?

One of my favorite things about being married to a college pastor is building relationships with the girls in our group. Inevitably, there are two young people who fall in love, consider marriage, and decide they need marriage/relationship counsel from Chris and me.

The Birds, The Bees, and The Plan B

Have you seen the recent car commercial where a couple is in the car with their young son who looks like he is six or seven years old? The father is spinning a rather fantastical story about where babies come from only to have their son try to tell them that he had heard the “real story” from another […]
