Is It Okay To Propose On The First Date?

Chris Grace, Tim Muehlhoff - March 6, 2019

"So we had our first date shortly after that camp. I proposed to him during that first date. So there you go...I do remember he dropped his fork back into his plate at that particular moment. So we didn't really talk about it again." Please allow us to introduce you to Mandy Catto. She will be a more regular voice here on the Art of Relationships podcast, as you will hear.

Me & You & A New Baby, Too

Alisa Grace - February 26, 2019

The relationship between a husband and wife is so important! It establishes the foundation of emotional and relational well-being for the whole family.

Thanksgiving Through The Eyes of Newlyweds

Ben and Nicole Longinow - November 20, 2018

The sun was just beginning to crest the mountains and spread scattered light through the trees. The quiet morning air was beginning to fill with the chirp of birds or the whistle of wind through the tall ancient pines. I could feel the cold mountain air in my lungs as I took an extended deep breath. I looked back at my tent and took in this beautiful woman lying there, still asleep. My wife. The moment sunk into my mind. I was married and spending a weekend away camping with my wife. Incredible. 


Reconciling on Halloween: What Should We Do?

Tim Muehlhoff - October 30, 2018

Second, can you share thoughts about Halloween and how Christians should or should not engage?

Signed, Slightly Spooked.
