A few weeks ago, I shared a message from our church’s “Modern Family” series called “Happy Husband, Happy Home.” I mentioned that I’d be back in a couple of weeks to pick up the other half of that message which is “Happy Wife, Happy Life.” I probably would have had this message posted a lot sooner, but it’s been a busy week (in particular, I overdid it last night so I decided it was more important to rest than to post).

May 03, 2012
A couple of weeks ago, my church started a new series called, “Modern Family.” As it so happens, we invited a couple of our friends to church that weekend and sat in the family chapel with their 2 year old – kind of gave me a taste for what life will be like in a few short months. Anyways…since I took the last two weeks off (with regard to my faith posts), I thought I’d start at the beginning of the series: “What Happened to the Family.” Warning, this is a long one.  Let me run a few statistics by you that our minister shared during the lesson: 40%...
