With all this talk about the 31 Days to a Happy Husband challenge, I recently received a question that I've been asked by wives time and time again: How do you love and serve someone who doesn't deserve to be loved?   This is a question I can ...

31 Days to a Happy Husband Challenge

Yes, I've done it again! I've gone ahead and unsubscribed my husband from my website.  He's (was) one of my email subscribers so he gets posts the moment I press "publish."
