Give Him Some Slack, Not Flack

Debi Pearl

When I look around at the marriages that are really sweet, I see that the lady of the house cuts her man some slack. Giving slack is just acknowledging that he deserves to be allowed to be who he is.

The Screens Between

Michael Pearl

How do you continue to be submissive when your husband is passive? We have always disagreed where our children are concerned; I’m a disciplinarian and he lets most everything slide.

Erin Harrison

The painting you see above was painted when I was about 20 years old, when I came to see that God was dwelling in my heart and driving out the darkness and shame bit by bit. It was in the form of a daisy I picked one day. My center was a glowing sun with the brightness of the glory of God, but each petal withered and dying. Then I saw myself planted in his life-giving waters. Suddenly there was life in the petals and each one became pure white.

Believe I Can

Debi Pearl

I felt a lump in my throat as I watched my 8-year-old son slowly stand up.
