Self-Sacrificing in Love

I was recently asked to officiate a wedding and what a blessing it was.  Not only the experience of officiating the wedding was a blessing but also the time spent preparing for the wedding day was a gift.  The time spent preparing was time spent reflecting and contemplating those things that make marriage work and…

Relationally Safe
