The daily one-minute program with Dr. Gary Chapman, New York Times Best-selling author.
The Function of Parenting
The two functions of parenting are teaching and training. Teaching is focused on words. Training involves action. In your parenting, don't use one without the other.
What do you do when you speak your spouse's love language to them, but they don't return love in your love language? Gain strength from God's love for you - the greatest love of all.
Concern vs. Worry
How do you deal with your anxiety? Recognize the difference between concern and worry. Worry causes you to get overwhelmed under the load. Concern leads to action. The Biblical answer is "Pray about everything".
Separated But Don't Want a Divorce
I'm separated but I don't want a divorce. What do I do? Dr. Gary Chapman says the Christian is called upon to seek reconciliation. Prayer is the best place to start.
How should I deal with a non-custodial parenting situation? Dr. Gary Chapman suggests that both parents agree on applying the same rules in each of their homes. This will help the child avoid having to split their loyalties between both parents.
How to Handle A Controlling Spouse
You've tried to express your feelings to your controlling spouse, but your attempt to address it doesn't seem to work. Dr. Gary Chapman suggests you seek counseling to deal with the pain. Invite your spouse to join you. Let them know you're going with or without them.
