It would be an understatement if I say, “I’m excited”.
Didn’t I tell you all last time that the title, “Beautiful Cinderella” of my book didn’t pass the scrutiny of the editors? Well, here comes the new title they came up with, the one I literally, instantly fall in love with, the one I gave two thumbs up to:
“ Beyond the Fairytale,
with a subtitle:
“An Appeal for Sexual Purity.” Continue reading Beyond the Fairytale
Marriage is very different from dating. Dating has some sort of excitement to it almost every day. It is sweet and makes life bearable. Especially for a girl who stole a man’s heart, it is a blast. She may sometimes feel that she is flying on the air. She easily embraces herself as the most beautiful and attractive person ever created on this planet earth.
When she ignores him, he texts her five hundred “I love you” and “I’m so sorry” messages and she continues ignoring him, just to receive more romantic messages. Continue reading Marriage and Dating are Different for Men
“Mystery? With man’s sexual nature? Mystery? Men love sex and that is where it ends. There is no mystery with man’s sexual nature.”
I know, I once thought that too. Some researchers didn’t want to waste their time either with the issue that is “straightforward”, as they said. Continue reading One of the mysterious natures of a man’s sexual nature
It was around September of 2009. I was reading one of the daily devotional Bible study materials I used to receive via email. And I ran into an interesting article and I read it and at the end, it read, “if you want to sign up for a 40 weeks long daily Bible study note, give us your email”.
I signed up. “I mean, what do I lose? If I don’t like it, I will “unsubscribe”. That is all.” I thought to myself. Continue reading What is on your table?
Do you know who addressed the people of God like: “Adulterers and adulteresses!”?
It was James (James 4:4), who wrote a letter to the people of God who were going through tough times.
Why did he address them like that? Continue reading Love of God
Early on in our marriage, I used to pack my stuff to go back to Ethiopia for every little conflict I had with Berhan.
You see, we were the first ones to talk about getting married among our friends. We got married and we were all alone. No married people were around to guide or mentor us. Not only from our friends but we were the first ones to get married from our siblings, from his side and my side. Yeah, can you just imagine! Continue reading Having People Over Us
Sexual purity or sexual immorality won’t fall on people. People make it happen in their lives.
But there is a slight difference how those opposite lifestyles can happen in our lives. Continue reading We choose our lifestyle
Our older son was five, our daughter was three and our youngest son was one. I was rushing to prepare lunch. My hubby is at work. Talk about being busy and nervous, that was it.
I usually love setting up my hair, dressing up and looking good. But during this season, it was a struggle for me even to wash my face. Continue reading The LORD detests Lying Lips (Proverbs 12:22)
“The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.” Genesis 2:18
A suitable helper or “a helpmate” in the Hebrew word is Ezer Kenegdo and guess what that translates in to: A LIFESAVER.
No wonder divorced men die quicker than the men who stayed in their marriages. Remarriage doesn’t change the life expectancy of a divorced man. The only thing that is best for a man to do is, first to marry and second to find a way to live with his complicatedly created wife. Continue reading One Best Way to Live with a Wife
The most life threatening environment for a man to live in is a house where the presence of a mean-spirited wife is felt everywhere.
First he fights, and he finds out that he has little or zero chance to win, then he withdraws (tends to watch soccer or football a lot or becomes a politician and/or a philosopher). Then he checks himself out from his kids’ life and at last he desires only one thing; and that is to die. Continue reading Life with a Mean-Spirited Wife
