Augmented Religion

Posted by    |    August 8th, 2011 at 2:52 pm

Religion is churning its wheels – although some would say spinning – to keep up with the ever expanding, and certainly always changing, society we live in.

But this battle isn’t new.

In the past the heart of the matter has been the same: a generational change comes along and forces religious leaders to bridge the gap in new ways.

10 Ways to Turn On a Woman

Posted by    |    August 7th, 2011 at 5:40 am

 

 

Every time I see an Old Spice commercial (like this one), an Axe hair-gel commercial or a TAG body-spray commercial, I just shake my head.  According to the commercials, if you just use these products, women will be uncontrollably attracted to you sexually.  Now men, I’ll be the first to admit, it is important to your wife that you smell good, BUT a quick shot of TAG body-spray is not going to make her jump you in the grocery store.

That got me to thinking about things that really turn a woman on. First thing husbands need to understand when it comes to sex is that men are like a microwave and women are more like a slow-cooker … meaning romance needs to start early in the day for wives.  Husbands, notice the list below … all these things start BEFORE bedtime … MEANING if you just wait for bedtime to get “romantic”, you’re probably too late!

11 Facebook Rules for Married Couples

Posted by    |    August 3rd, 2011 at 5:40 am

 

 

Since so many have been doing the Facebook Marriage Challenge, I thought it’d be a good time to talk about some Facebook Rules for Married Couples.

Facebook has become hugely popular in the past few years. Lea and I both love being able to catch up with old friends and family on Facebook. But with anything that comes along, there can also be dangers and problems if not used responsibly. Sometimes Facebook and other online communities can cause problems in marriages if some rules aren’t followed.

One marriage counselor said this, “Over the course of the last three or four years, I have seen the growth of social networking technologies paralleled by a growth of poor decisions and crossed boundaries by Christians who should know better. I have sat across from many who have entered into emotional and/or physical extra-marital affairs through social media. In fact, lawyers are saying that now, one in five divorce petitions they’re processing cite Facebook as either the way petitioners find out about their partner’s infidelity, and/or how their partner began or pursued extra-marital relationships.

See how important it is that we have some rules, guidelines and accountability for things like Facebook?  Here are a few guidelines for married couples that Lea and I talked about and I’d like to share… (more…)
