Falling Off the Wedding Cake


Remember the cute little plastic couple who graced the top of your wedding cake?  After our wedding, 31 years ago, I saved our cake topper and despite being transported around the world during many military moves, the happy couple now lives in our china cabinet, broken, patched up, yet still together after all these years.  On the day of our wedding, this little bride and groom stood together as one on top of the cake, infallible and undefeatable.  After the wedding, however, we found that the challenges of life were eroding our marriage foundation.  We start sliding down that slippery slope of isolation, feeling powerless to stop our descent.  What could we do to get back on the wedding cake?  Here are some tried and true tips:




Q. My wife and I just became debt-free, and we’re saving for our first house. We have about $75,000 in savings, and we’d like to buy a home with cash in the next few years. Where do you think we should place our money so it’s working for us while we save?

Years ago, the word “hospitality” put an instant knot in my stomach. To me, hospitality was serving a gourmet meal to a houseful of guests I welcomed to my clean and uncluttered home. With two small children, a smaller budget and a lack of talent in the art of small talk, I felt like a perpetual failure. Then I met Lester Hostetler.

Jenny Garnett’s aging mother was once a vibrant and outgoing woman, but began falling deeper and deeper into what Jenny called a dark hole of depression. She quit talking and memory loss soon followed. “I felt like I had lost my mother,” said Jenny. “We didn’t know what to do.” But then something happened. Something miraculous. It didn’t happen in a moment or even noticeably, at least not at first. But slowly and surely, Jenny Garnett’s mother began to show glimmers of her “old self.” She smiled. She laughed. She sang and she danced.

Truth and Beauty


In 1819, the poet John Keats wrote these lines: “beauty is truth, truth beauty—that is all/Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.” It’s an overstatement, of course; the identification of beauty with truth is surely not all ye need to know. And yet… Keats’s words have been on my mind quite a lot lately. We should take them seriously.

How Did You Get So Much Bigger Than Me?


Luke 2:49-52: “Why were you searching for me?” he asked.  “Didn’t you know I had to be in my Father’s house?”  But they did not understand what he was saying to them.  Then he went down to Nazareth with them and was obedient to them.  But his mother treasured all these things in her heart.  And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.
