  • Marriage joins a couple as one in unity of peace

    Two major happenings took place for me in January earlier this year.

    First, I got a year older. Second, I got to celebrate being married a year longer. That makes 35 years together for my wife Pam and I. And they said it wouldn’t last.

    Some people don’t understand what marriage is really all about. From the union of the first man and first woman, God has been clear about the purpose of the marriage relationship: “a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh.” (Genesis 2:24)

  • Don’t overcook pork; take a try at pesto pasta


    I so appreciate all of the positive comments regarding the pork rub recipe I gave you a couple of weeks ago.

    It was so funny because the very day I wrote the column, my daughter-in-law called and wanted to know if I had a good recipe for a pork loin. She wanted to fix a nice dinner for my son. However, he was getting a little tired of chicken and he wanted something different. Hence, my recipe came in really handy that day. The results from my son, “delicio.”
