  1. That's hard to answer. The pain that you are feeling can (and should) serve a purpose - the horror, helplessness, shock, and disbelief that you feel right now is a fraction (think maybe 1/10 or so) of what your wife feels/felt. That is why she had to protect herself. She couldn't bear it any longer, she was never made to carry that. Let that sink in, embrace that pain for your wife, and let the knowledge of it make you beg the LORD to change you so that you never,ever make your wife feel that way again. Don't focus on how you feel, focus on how your wife feels. The thought of going back to you
  2. My advice would be that neither of those questions are appropriate at this time. They aren't really questions that would bring your wife healing in any way, they are questions to validate and comfort you, which isn't the point. You'll learn more about why you do that as you get further into the books. The life of a Christian is supposed to be a journey towards Christlikeness. That's what the sanctification Kimberly mentioned is. "Christian" doesn't mean I said a prayer once, I know something about who I prayed it to, and I show up at a church building on Sundays and the occasional Wednesday, i
  3. Hi SSGVinyard- Go ahead and post your question, I'm sure someone will jump in and answer it to the best of their ability as soon as they can (it may be a helper, it may not be a helper in the official sense). Make sure you include the section of the book and which book prompted the question so it can be viewed in context.
  4. Hi Bruce- Remember when David, you, and I spoke a month or two ago on the men's call about consistency and how important it was? What you are hearing now is a continuation of that same point. Continue to work on being so consistent and predictable that Mindy knows what you are going to do before you do it. Be precise. Remember, men change from the outside in, so doing the right actions is a good thing, but it is your core that needs to change. Consider this the GOD of Peace sanctifying you wholly, spirit, soul (your mind, will and emotions), and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Just as the LO

  7. I'm not sure who it was for, but I recall hearing Joel requesting that last night's call be uploaded ahead of some of the others. Here's the link: http://s3.amazonaws.com/jk_calls/february2010/mon_couples_020110.mp3 To access all of our couples recording calls, we ask you to register on the link at the top of the forum to give $10 each month. Then ask us to add you to the couples recording calls section of the forum.. and you can listen to them all! For the women's calls, we ask a woman to be part of the women's call group - which is a $25 gift per month. If she is donating $25 per mon
  8. PM Dory or another moderator and let her know there's a clean up in the men working to win their wives hearts back section.
  9. Hi 1SM, I believe the Lord is leading me to direct you to the following scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:9 9But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. Don't allow what you perceive as shortcomings of your own hold you back from doing what the Lord is leading you to do. Step out in faith, and know that the Lord will meet you where you are at. If these things that are being required came easily and naturally to you, it wouldn't really be st
  10. Hi 1SM- I think that posting those kinds of things here are fine, it would be good to discuss them with your wife as well (if she wants to). More importantly though, the details she is likely more interested in hearing about are things along the lines of what you read in chapter X that made you realize how you had hurt her in a specific situation(s) - not just that you read chapter X, or what you learned (and how you're going to apply what you learned) on a conference call, things like that. I don't know your wife (I don't know you, either), but from what I've heard her say on the calls and
  11. You are doing great. Just felt led here today, I'm going to go through and read the thread from beginning to end to re-familiarize myself with it. I do believe Pooh genuinely wants to give you what you need, he's just kind of stuck.
  12. IPTV hasn't really taken off in the US much yet for whatever reason. AT&T and Verizon do have offerings, though. AT&T's is called U-verse and it might be available in your neck of the woods. Plug your zipcode into the box at this link to see if it is. http://www.att.com/u-verse/explore/default.jsp
