In The Spotlight


Celebrate The Moments of CHRISTmas

Whatever your simply sensational moments may be, I hope you find time for it today! It’s really important to do that — even if you have to leave some other monstrously and seemingly important thing undone. It might be time to prioritize, and special moments should never be crossed off the list!

Christmas Gift Certificates for Your Husband

Why don’t you give him something that is incredibly valuable and rare? Give him a gift that includes BOTH treasures: the things he never asks for but always wants, and the things he always asks for and never gets enough!

Immanuel, A Christmas Presence

Have you ever experienced Immanuel? Here’s how. Close your eyes . Take a deep breath. Let it out, and with the emptying of that breath, empty yourself of self — thoughts of self, of the present, of now. And then — instead of being in the present — be in the PRESENCE.

Dear Husband, I Know What You’re Saying

Posted  August 4, 2016  by  Denise Barkdoll

Unlike me, Robert doesn’t always have a lot to say.  Sometimes our conversations are more one-sided with me talking and him listening. That’s usually the way it is when the topic of “feelings” arises. Occasionally I just like to say to him, “Let’s talk about our feelings”. And he usually responds with, “I don’t even […]

Part 2: Just Me and the Chickens

Posted  July 25, 2016  by  Denise Barkdoll

I’m so glad you joined me for the second half of this two-part post!  Previously, I wrote about the strength and encouragement I draw from my Saviour Who has also walked this life in human flesh and was “touched with the feeling of our infirmities” (Hebrews 4:15).  It’s such a comfort to me to know […]

Part 1: Been There, Done That

Posted  July 18, 2016  by  Denise Barkdoll

  t really means a lot to me when I can talk with someone who truly understands how I feel because they’ve “been there” before.

Posted  June 25, 2016  by  Denise Barkdoll

Sisters, count it all joy when you clean up various messes… This loose take on James 1:2 popped into my brain recently as I was wiping up the greasy remnants of my husband’s French fry-ing adventure from the night before.  The thought came to me right after this one:  Why am I cleaning up a […]

4 Ways to Stay Connected In a Long-Distance Relationship…Marriage!

Posted  June 2, 2016  by  Jen McDonald

It may sound a bit sad to hear my marriage defined as a “long-distance” relationship, but over the course of the past few years, it’s been that way more often than not. As a military family, we’ve been through our share of deployments, and my husband’s job for many years’ running has seen him spend […]

The Master Plans

Posted  May 27, 2016  by  Denise Barkdoll

I don’t know about you, but I can be pretty good at making some plans. A portion of these plans are just dreams, conceived by and tucked away in my romantic little heart, all tied up with pretty little bows. Most of my plans are practical. I plan out what’s for supper, and what I’ll […]
