Beyond the Fairytale

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 and Dating are Different for Men

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

What is on your table?

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?

Having People Over Us

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

One Best Way to Live with a Wife

“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

Life with a Mean-Spirited 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
