I do....From this day forward

Are you married?  Do plan to be married one day (if you are single).
What do you think contributes to high, 50%, divorce rate among those in the U.S.?  Personally I think the high divorce rate is because people in the last 50-75 years or so have become super-lazy. They want their marriages to be like a hot pocket or like a Subway sandwich made to be exactly how they or they give it back or throw it away. People these days seem to only want marriage when it is easy. They don't want to get down in the trenches to put in the work to make the marriage work.

From This Day Forward: Five Commitments to Fail-Proof Your Marriage By Craig & Amy Groeschel explains five commitments that Christian couples can make to strengthen their marriage to lengthen their marriage and glorify God with their marriage.  As a married woman with children. This is a book that I can and do appreciate.
The five commitments are:  Seek God (We seek God in prayer. We need to pray regularly and consistently. All…

A Father's Love

The prodigal son story is one of a spoiled son who takes advantage of his position in life as a wealthy heir, he parties and spends all of his inheritance eventually falling so low as to WISH to be a servant in his father'…

The Duck Commander Bible

Now I will admit, I LOVE getting new bibles. It gives me the butterflies when I get ready to read the Word of God in a new bible, I get to make new markings, it's almost like I'm reading the Word of God for the first time. 
So when I get the chance to read the Duck Commander Bible, I am over the moon as I admire Phil & Al Robertson for holding true to their beliefs in the Word of God regardless to any and everything.

That being said this bible gets 2 thumbs up! 5 stars!!
I enjoy the readings penned by Phil & Al that are included in the bible based on their five core values: faith, family, fellowship, forgiveness, and freedom. This is my first NKJV bible ever and I enjoy this version much more than I thought I would. There are not notes, which I did not expect as it is not a study bible. Without the notes, it leaves the font large enough for me to be able to read without my glasses on (yay!!!). I love the quality of the bible as the paper is not too thin where I would …
