The Incredibly Protective Nature of Boundaries

MOST parents take seriously the incredibly important protective nature of boundaries, but too few engage in actually training their kids. It is too late when a child is abused – generally in secret – and commonly by people they know.

Do We Need Therapy? Four Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Call a Couples Counselor

The decision to go to couples therapy is never an easy one.

Forget Your “Honey-Do” List – It’s Time for a “Do-Better” List

We are all familiar with the infamous ‘honey-do’ list.

But beyond the typical chore list, most couples also have another list, an emotional ‘honey-do’ list of sorts.

Minding Your Marriage

I came across a great vlog (video blog, for those of you like me who have no clue about these things) today. It was from local matchmaker/relationship coach, Paul Carrick Brunson and he was sharing the number one issue keeping singles from meeting that someone special.

If the weather predictions are right, many of us in the DC area may find that our romantic plans for dinner and dancing or a mini-getaway this weekend are not going to happen. And after days stuck at home, many of you may not be feeling very lovey-dovey anyway. So what’s a couple to do?

Is Today a Good Day to Be Married?

The Distance Between Integrity and Gossip

SECRETS are granted to us in the sweeps and turns of the relational life. We are privileged to be allowed in within the secrets of others, let alone to keep the secrets we have tightly locked away – the secrets that maintain integrity.
