This last summer I did a series with a guy named Dr. Norm “Normie” Thiesen, and I asked him all sorts of questions about singleness, dating and marriage. In one episode I asked him, “What questions should a young couple ask an older couple before they get married?”
He gave two answers.
Then I asked y’all a similar question, and you gave me 33 answers. Read more
Why do we have weddings? Is Happily Ever After real? Is it possible to help our friends stay together forever?
Since it’s “wedding season” and this is a post I hold near and dear to my heart, I felt it was time to share this baby again. Last week, I was contacted by two different friends telling me of their friends whose marriages were Read more

Maybe it was because I was holding an umbrella… or because I was barefoot… or because minutes before the ceremony Sarah was playing air hockey with her father… Those things may contribute to the memory, but the stories that were shared about Sarah and Cassidy are probably what I will hold onto the longest. I don’t think there was …
