A wise piece of advice on confronting someone you love

January is Busiest time of the year for Divorce Filings- Are you thinking about it?

January has been dubbed "divorce month" and with good reason. It shows the highest number of divorce filings than any other month. People typically want to wait until after the Holidays to begin the process. Often, though the holidays pass, some of the emotion dies down and people begin to think... "should I really do this?" "Is this really marriage really hopeless?" 

Maybe you are thinking about divorcing or know somebody who is. Before you do, take the time to…

An event that could change your life (and your marriage)

Why does God let bad things happen to good people? Why did I lose my job? Why did my spouse cheat on me? Why did I lose my child? Why did they do that?  WHY????  A question asked from the beginning of time.  Even the most righteous man who ever lived on the face of the earth asked this question- "Why have you forsaken me?" You ever asked that of God? 

I encourage you join thousands of others in over 700 theaters across the U.S. by attending UNSTOPPABLE- a one night fathom event in a…

There is still good in the World

Finding the sad and ugly in sports is easy these days. Such stories tend to dominate the headlines: tales of Ryan Braun’s suspension from baseball for cheating and the lies he uttered about it, the ongoing saga of Aaron Hernandez’s murder trial, and news that two different executives from the Denver Broncos were recently suspended for DUIs. We could find a least a dozen other incidents to suck all of the enjoyment out of sports, but emphasizing such stories is to miss so many other tales of…

Love can move the impossible

Love can disintegrate the highest fortification imaginable. It can penetrate the tiniest crevices of walls-built by those we love the most. Love slips inside without clamor and fanfare and does its labor by opening new pathways.  Keep proving your love no matter how others respond. Stay humble and the creator of Love will leverage the most powerful fulcrum in heaven and on earth, to move the impossible. – Mitch Temple

Don't Throw in the Towel Too Quickly

From the Forum

At the end of March this year my wife came home and said she wanted a divorce. A week after that she called and told me that she had the divorce paperwork and that we needed to talk about how custody of our two kids was going to be and also what I wanted to do with my stuff that was in our house.

 Two weeks after that I rededicated my life to Christ and His service.  I prayed several times a day that my marriage would be restored and wouldn't you know it…
