Marriage: Sharing the Pie

Michael Pearl

Love doesn’t keep accounts. It doesn’t keep score. When we start keeping score, it’s a game—a game where we are counting winners and losers. More than anything we want our fair share of the pie, and if we don’t feel we are getting it we accuse, mistrust, and feel misused. Faith relationships can’t be built on selfishness or accusations.

Michael Pearl

Karen Sargent

When I was a young girl, most of the examples of good marriages in my life—my parents, my grandparents, a close aunt and uncle—were of women married to Steady men. So naturally, that’s how I envisioned my own would be. I didn’t know what I was getting when I got a classic Visionary.

Psalm 107 to Heal Depression

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.

Depression Grooving Research

Debi Pearl

Science has proven that there is no such thing as “can’t help it.” Mike and I knew all through these 50 years of counseling, but what could we say to someone who came to us for help? Call them a liar? Tell them they could help it if they’d just repent and turn to God? In most cases they were too entrenched behind the wall of inability and victimhood. Oh, the beauty of having a new weapon against this age old self-deception. Now we can say, “Let’s go get a scan of your brain. I’m paying.”
