3 Things You Will Never Change About Your Marriage and 10 Things You Can

What a blast I had last weekend speaking on marriage at the Big Flats Wesleyan Church.

"In the Beginning God Created ... Sex" was the topic Saturday night. Couples strolled into the sanctuary having no idea what this old woman was going to teach them about sex. We had fun as I explained what the Bible says about sexual intimacy within marriage. Soon the couples were laughing and at ease with this subject knowing that sexual intimacy was God's first blessing and His most obeyed command. Genesis 1:28 says, "then God blessed them and said, 'be fruitful and multiply...." Yes Sir, God blesses sexual intimacy in marriage.

After the teaching, the couples had two hours of free babysitting (great idea, Big Flats Wesleyan) to enjoy a date night. These hours were given for the couple to enjoy going out to dinner, but at least one couple eagerly announced to the group: "We're not going out to dinner. After that talk, we're going home!" Woo Hoo!

The next morning I delivered my message, "3 Things You Will Never Change About Your Marriage and 10 Things You Can." You can listen to it here:

What joy filled my heart (and God's too, I'm sure) when nearly every couple came to the altar to seek God's best for their marriage, to repent of sin in their marriage, and to dedicate their lives to each other before God.

If you would like more marriage help, I suggest you read my marrige  books.

Splashes of Serenity: Bathtime Reflections for Drained Wives is available on this website, and contains the reflection, "In the Beginning God Created . . . Sex."

We All Married Idiots contains the Three Things You Will Never Change About Your Marriage and Ten Things You Can. Also available on this website or on Amazon or B&N or and on Kindle and Nook. See to order on Amazon.

I hope you listen to my talk and allow God to bless your marriage with splashes of serenity like you've never known before. Afterall, He wants to give you a marriage greater than you ever imagined!



  1. I just bought your book -I know that my husband married an idiot! Looking forward t a great read!

  2. Thanks, Donna! So did mine! I'm the idiot in chief at our house. Enjoy the book and may your marriage be blessed.


  3. Looking forward to this read. After almost 49 years we still fight, but now they are just disagreements and we can sometimes laughs about them. Sounds like a book you would want to give out too. Blessings

  4. Congrats on 49 years! Enjoy a chuckle or two and maybe a few less disagreements. It really is fun being married to an idiot when one can admit they are idiotic too! Thanks for the comment!
