Building Blocks #4

Today was a holiday so none of our offices were open & the older kids covered the kitchen, laundry, baby dorm, etc.

Angelina took her oral exams at the university so we are trusting that she will graduate. Awaiting the results!


The seventh building block of marriage is sexual fulfillment. Even before the fall Adam and Eve were told to replenish the earth. Intimacy and sexual fulfillment have always been part of God’s plan for husbands and wives.

Sexual fulfillment is not only enjoyable but it is protective. We reserve this act to one spouse alone. I Corinthians 7:2 says, “Let each man have his own wife and let each woman have her own husband”. This protects one another from extramarital affairs.

Motivated by the love of God this act of love protects us.

The eighth building block is open communication. 87% of couples in counseling say that communication is their biggest problem. Wives get frustrated trying to get their husbands to talk. Husbands feel that talking is useless because the wife has alredy made up her mind.

Jesus is the living Word so He is the great Communicator. He spoke in order to get the world to know His Father. We need to talk honestly as well as talk through every problem. A marriage without communication is a marriage that will struggle to succeed. Begin by talking facts and then move to talking about your feelings.
